It can be intense if you turn it up too high. I’m anxious to see the long term results. I haven’t used it for long but so far I can feel the my abs at work.
Anything will work to lose inches and I will stick with it. It looks easy to do but it is hard. I guess it will take some time to adjust.
It took me about 9 months using it for 6 to 8 minutes on average 4 times per week. Much better than any other method I have tried. If you use this properly and consistently you will get well defined abs.
Would it beat the $99 Keen Newport H2? Probably not, that one is precision engineered for wet hiking, like the Narrows in Zion. They performed like a champ. The only negative (which happens to many other water shoes like the Keen Newport H2s that my wife wore) is that when doing the stream crossing and stepping in the sand, it tends to get small rocks stuck where your foot is. You get used to it though. These perform way better than I'd expected them to for the price. Great grip on all the limestone edges of the terraced waterfalls, and perfectly usable on the dry areas as well. And even after all that hiking thru the different terrain, there's barely any wear on it. I brought these with me to a backpacking trip to Havasupai. But for $20, I would definitely buy these again. Note: If your feet don't fit too well in the shoes when hiking, be sure to put a bandaid or something slightly above the heel where the Achilles tendon is because that's where the shoes will rub. Over many miles of water hiking, I got a small sore on my left foot (right foot was totally fine). Just thought y'all should know. I used them a lot while hiking from the campgrounds to the various waterfalls, and also on the (roundtrip) 4+ mile hike thru tons of stream crossings and dry areas down to Beaver Falls.
After following him for a short time I noticed that he had a mustache on his butt! I immediately thought that I needed to get me a pair. Great padding and fit. I bought this for my son who is 14 and just starting into serious cycling.
