    it depends on what condition your abs are already in, i mean if you already have good abs and do regular sit ups then they dont really make much difference but if not then you will feel the difference.
    They didnt do anything for me as i found that i got better results just doing 50 sit ups every other night as you dont have to do 200 situps a day to get good abs, but you have to remember that you might have the best abs in the world but if you dont get rid of the fat above then nobody would ever know.

    Iv just brought one of those "Body Shapers". Great little thing, has 18 different exercises just to work out the abs. Do 20mins every other night and you will deffo notice the difference. :0 )

    do sit ups burn fat off the belly aswell as building the abs?

    Just make sure you have got the controls - I have been quite literally shocked by some funny git turning up the power of the shocks when I wasn't looking. Them rolling around laughing - and me rolling around in agony.
    look at the mooli

    Not really, , i mean if you felt that you needed to lose weight from your arms you wouldnt do 200 hammer curls would you, as the same goes for ab workouts, you might have great abs underneath but untill you lose the fat (through the right diet and exercise) then nobody would know.

    Yup. There's no such thing as spot reducing (burning fat from a certain area by doing a certain exercise). It's all down to cardio and diet.
    However, if you have a bit of a stomach then toning up the abs can, in a lot of cases, make you look slimmer.

    Good luck with the diet bud

    I've had one for years, when I do use it my abs start to hurt as in extremely well exercised, but I can't say you see a big difference. When I have been going to the gym regularly and doing abdominal exercises as well as using an ems machine on my abs, it seems to make a big difference to the appearance of my stomach, I think with the regular exercise it helps get that six pack on show.

    Shouldn't really mention this but I saw a guy who decided to use one of these in an 'unsafe' manner.

    I would certainly advise against using the device on your genitalia.

    Be warned.
