Today I thought I would take a break from exercises to share an experiment I have been doing for a month now. Since February 13, 2017 I have been applying an AB Cream and wearing a waist trimmer during my workouts to see if they really do work. Now what caught my interest was the amount of women I have seen on social media using these extra steps to enhance burning their belly fat. So I thought I would see if this was just another fitness fad or if there really was some kind of science behind elevating your core temperature to burn belly fat.
The products I have been using are the Neoprene Stomach Wrap Waist Trimmer and the SteelFit ABs of Steel Maximum Definition Cream. Both were purchased on Amazon.
So I applied the AB Cream as directed and wore the Waist Trimmer for the duration of my workouts, usually 2-3 hours. Now my eating, water intake and supplements remained the same so that I could get more accurate results. My workouts also remained the same with weightlifting and 15-20 minutes of cardio 4 days a week.While applying the Cream I didn’t feel anything at first, but once the cream was rubbed in completely I noticed a burning sensation, which was completely normal according to the bottle. Then I would put on the Waist Trimmer as tight as I could stand it and begin my workouts. I did notice that while wearing he Waist Trimmer I was covered in sweat within 10-15 minutes of starting my weightlifting and I could feel more heat from my core.
Once I completed my workouts and took off the Waist Trimmer my core was soaked with sweat and this occurred after every use of the Waist Trimmer and AB Cream. On day one I took my measurements and my waist was 29 inches and my hips were 34 1/2 inches. So on that day I planned on Che king these measurements every 4 weeks to see if I was actually losing inches and if my skin was tightening up any.
Now as far as skin tightening only progress pictures will show that, I’m still unsure if that part of the experiment is working because I’m not noticing much difference, but maybe I’m just too close to the experiment to get and accurate take on this. So progress photos it is! Readers let me know if you can see any significant difference from month to month.
Yesterday March 13, 2017 was the day to take more measurements and my Waist was 28 inches and my hips 33 inches. Losing an inch in my waist and an inch and a half in my hips was a great number for my first month. Now different products may produce different results and I’m sure with more rigorous cardio I would lose even more, but as I said earlier this was an experiment and all results will vary. I do plan on continuing with this until June to see what happens and give this experiment a fair shot.
So my fellow fitness followers stay tuned for more updates on my AB Cream/Waist Trimmer experiment. I will be updating the blog every month one my findings and of course more progress photos and measurements.
