Ab Rocket Infomercial

I Don't Buy It: Ab Rocket

I want to believe this commercial. I want to get rock solid, six-pack abs in just five minutes a day. I want to sit back and take a "rocket ride" and get "awesome abs." The problem is that devices that target your midsection, like this one called the Ab Rocket, just won't do the trick. The commercial sounds too good to be true because, well, it is.

I'm not saying that you won't feel this in your upper, middle, and lower abs, but you can't get "the body you always wanted" by solely using this machine. Target toning doesn't melt away a flabby belly — only calorie burning exercise can help you do that. Once you get rid of excess pounds, it'll reveal an all around more toned body including a slimmer waistline, which is more than this silly fitness gadget could ever do.

yeah, that reeeally looks like it doesn't work. (I just did a search on Shaun T [Rockin' Body/Abs] and this page came up.. I have seen that informerical a bunch of times and it just doesn't seem like it would work!

I love how they make a regular crunch look SO hard to do. It's not that hard to do a crunch. I think you're better off buying a swiss ball to do crunches on.

The "just 5 minutes a day" sounds kinda manipulative to me. Try doing crunches for 5 minutes non-stop! It's just impossible for an average person.
