Can this help losing weight?

Postby isabella_lala » Tue, 08 Sep 2009 2:19 pm

Any one have tried being on an inversion table? when i inverse on it i feel strange like my head is filled. After 1 or 2 minutes, i should stop as i cannot bear that. It's that normal? Is it ture that it helps losing weight?

In fact it can if you do it in right way. I would stand up for it because i've tried that! I think it's not like those intense exercise. it's not for trainning muscle, but for stimulating blood circulation. But you should take it carefully, normally once 1 minute is enough.

I guess I didn't choose a good one or maybe didn't follow the direction. :?
I also heard about some real cases occur on my friend who is keeping exercise with it for 2 or 3 months. She's not intending to lose weight but to keep health, and i really see some changes on her.

kind of hanging upside down. But it 's not 180° inverse, about 75 °, i guess. And the angle is adjustable. I searched online and found this website which shows the instruction. http://www.imadumbarse.com/

I am not sure how it works, maybe that's because it stimulates blood circulation.
Not very big changes on her, but looks getting in shape.

Not intending to but did it... lol. Did you buy yours after her? If you did then you should have followed her instruction, or you may ask the customer service.

inversion table

Postby smurph » Wed, 16 Sep 2009 10:56 am

You have to be carefull of how much time you spend on these as they increase blood pressure, so if you already have high blood pressure, you should check with your doc first :(

I bought my from http://www.imadumbarse.com. There're sorts of these sold on line, but if you don't know which is good, you may go to some brand name store to get some information.

Now isn't this cute. isabella_lala & Helen1234 is carrying on a conversation with herself. Funny that she/they are posting from the same PRC IP address isn't it! Bye-Bye now!

Hello Isabella,
There are many ways in losing weight; one of them is taking diet medicine and exercise. But I prefer to choose exercise with a small of rice in your 3 meals. The most important is your aim to lose your weight and self discipline.
