Practice English Speaking&Listening with: EMS Ab and Bicep Muscle Stimulator Workout Pads Review - 6 weeks results

Difficulty: 0

Hey hows it going guys, Phil here and this is a review for the EMS abdominal and bicep

muscle trainers.

You'll receive three pieces of this set individually boxed.

This is the ab trainer and youll receive two of the bicep trainers.

Lets start with the ab trainer.

The unit is made of a semi-rigid but flexible silicone material.

On the back you have six electrical stimulation points in silver.

In the center is the battery bay where youll install the included CR2032 coin cell battery.

The unit comes with a plastic key to open the door,

but if you lose it you can also use a coin.

The battery is installed flat or positive side up

and you should hear a beep if it's seated correctly.

The cardboard pad is for storage

after you apply the conductive sticky pads to the ab stimulator.

Then you can store everything in the included ziptop bag.

In this packet are the sticky pads,

and the elastic belt can be worn over the unit

so that it doesnt move or fall off during use.

The instruction manual is illustrated and its pretty clear,

but note that the English section starts about halfway through the booklet.

The control interface is simple.

There is only a plus and minus button to control the impulse intensity.

The unit turns on as soon as you press the plus button

and it starts at level one, but can go up to level twenty.

The minus button decreases the level and if you press and hold it, turns the unit off.

Installing the conductive sticky pads is quick and simple.

Theyre shaped exactly like the sections on the machine so make sure you put the correct

pads in the appropriate place.

Start by peeling the gel pad off its backing sheet,

then match it up to the gray template on the back of the machine

and press down firmly, removing any air bubbles trapped underneath.

Work slowly so that the pads dont fold and stick to themselves and try not to touch

the sticky parts with your fingers.

Then you can peel the clear front layer off each pad.

Heres a quick look at my abs before starting training with the pad.

I have a busy schedule and dont really have much time to work out

so this machine should be able to help me out

by giving my abs a workout while Im working at my desk.

As you can see I dont have much definition

and it looks like maybe Ive put on a little winter weight.

When applying the machine, the plus button on the controls should be facing up.

Place it just below your rib cage and press down to your belly button.

Now, all you have to do is press the plus button.

If you cant feel the pulses, increase the level until you do.

At about level ten, you can see the machine working pretty good.

Im not gonna lie, its a really odd sensation to have your muscles contract on their own

and at higher levels it may actually feel somewhat painful

so choose the level that works best for you.

The machine will cycle through a number of different sequences,

some are fast, and some are slow.

You can optionally use the elastic waist band to hold the machine in place

and apply pressure if you feel like the gel pads are coming loose.

The entire workout lasts about 15 minutes from start to finish

and the machine will beep and turn off at the end.

When removing the ab trainer, use both hands and peel from both sides

rather than pulling on just one section at a time.

Ive been using the trainer about six weeks three times a week

and you can see theres a little more definition in my abs.

This is without doing any other type of ab workout during this time.

I hope that with continued use, I can get my abs into good shape by summer time.

Now lets look at the bicep trainers.

They measure about nine inches across and three inches wide

with the control box just under the pads.

You have the same template on the back for the gel pads

and battery installation is also identical.

So lets take a look at my biceps before.

The circumference looks to be about twelve and three-eighth inches.

With this unit, Ill place the control box just above the bend of my elbow,

and wrap the pads around my bicep.

Now press the plus to turn it on and increase the level

right around seven or eight I start to feel it.

The pulses run pretty far down my arms which shakes my arm and hand,

so keep in mind that while using it, you may not be able to complete tasks

that requires manual dexterity like writing, holding things, or typing.

The arm band is optional and I found it to be a lot longer than it needs to be.

After six weeks of using these on both arms every other day,

the measurement of my bicep is twelve and a half inches.

The improvement here seems to be a little less noticeable, but you can also use these

pads on different parts of your body like back and legs.

Theyre also quite nice as muscle massagers and can work some tension out of your muscles

if youre experiencing pain or soreness.

Just note that your muscles may feel fatigued after each workout session,

which is why I like to use the machines only every other day.

Overall, these trainers are pretty effective muscle stimulators.

The contractions are strong and theyre easy to apply and remove on my body.

They also seem to have helped a little with muscle toning, though for really big gains

youll have to do a good amount of strength training in addition.

The only small issue Ive really had is that sometimes the batteries tend to come

a little loose, so you have to open up the battery bay and re-seat them.

I hope you enjoyed this review you can ask me any questions in the comments.
