Uganda is moving really moving on a fast lane when it comes to entertainment. We are not only being represented well in music but even better when it comes to the film industry.
Queen of Katwe got an overwhelming reception but with the latest epic release of Marvel’s superhero trailer of “Black Panther” movie that has two Ugandans as part of the cast, it’s destined for greater things.
The movie has Daniel Kaluuya who acts as W’Kabi, a T’Challa confidant. T’Challa a fictional character and first biological son of T’Chaka, King of the African Nation of Wakanda and Florence Kasumba who acts as Ayo, a member of the Dora Milaje in the movie.
Daniel is a London based actor famous for his role in bestselling horror movie “Get Out” while Florence is a 39 year old Ugandan raised in Germany and behind films like Captain America civil war.
The new movie also has actress Lupita Nyong’o who acts as Nakia and it will be premiering soon in all cinema halls around the globe.
However, Daniel and Florence are not the only ‘Ugandan’ about the movie but the pearl of Africa was also given a mention when one of the actors asked the other what they know about ‘Buganda’, a famous tribe in Uganda.

Ragga/Dancehall artiste and former Fire Base Crew vice president Buchaman yesterday resurfaced while performing for supporters of FDC’s Apollo Kantinti at a campaign rally held at Wampewo Grounds, Kasangati.
Apollo is one of the contestants in the Kyadondo East Constituency by-election race which also has Ghetto President Bobi Wine. As Bucha Man performed, he made some negative remarks against his former partner saying that he is a conman and that Kyadondo East people should not fall for what he termed as Bobi Wine’s ‘smooth talk’
The question is, did the ‘Lwaki Temumatira’ hit singer say this in order to rekindle his rivalry with Bobi? He accuses Bobi Wine for manipulating him and crippling his music career which was the primary reason he quit Fire Base.
Ever since Buchaman parted ways with Bobi Wine, he kind off disappeared off the entertainment scene and it really takes good time hearing from the ‘Lwaki Temumatira’ hit maker bot musically and on the social scene.
Meanwhile, having artistes performing at rallies is not new to Bobi Wine as so far he has had artistes like Geosteady, King Saha, Kalifah Aganaga, Spice Diana and Victor Kamenyo rally behind him.

By the look of things, Uganda is fast becoming a one stop destination for entertainment in the region. Kenyan and Tanzanian artistes are always frequenting the country for different reasons but Tanzanian singer Vannessa Mdee took us by surprise over the weekend.
The beautiful musician decided to fly over to Uganda just to celebrate her birthday and the party was held at Club Play.
The Ciroc Uganda-sponsored event happened on Saturday at the Industrial area-based club, with majority of Kampala’s social elite in attendance including Ahumuza Brian aka Abryanz, Dave Kazoora, Williams Bugeme aka Boss Mutoto and Kim Swagga among others.
Besides just being a party, this do was also about fronting the latest fashion as everyone who attended came dressed to kill.
Dressed in all-black outfits that comprised of black shorts, high top stringed shoes, black long sleeved V-necked blouse that exposed the cleavage, the Tanzanian musician was all smiles throughout the night as she partied with her guests.
This is the second time in barely a year she is in Uganda and at the same venue but with different causes. The first time, she had come for a performance courtesy of Talent Africa to celebrate international women’s day.

It’s now a week since music producer Danz Kumapeesa was clobbered to the extent of losing consciousness with some sections of media reporting him dead. He has however been admitted at Nsambya Hospital Intensive Care Unit fighting for his dear life and the latest we are getting is that, he underwent a successful operation over the weekend.
However, the money that is needed at the hospital is too much that Jahlive which is the production house he has been working at can’t afford it. It’s therefore required that the public especially fellow producers, musicians, and sympathizers contribute for his treatment.
For every day he spends in the ICU at Nsambya, Shs500,000 is required and as of today, over seven million is what the hospital demands.
According to management of Jahlive, they have organized a committee of credible people to account for the money sent from the public.
“The entire Jahlive family together with the music fraternity would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has positively contributed to the treatment of Danz ku mapeesa. He underwent a successful operation and is responding to the doctor’s medication. However due to the prevailing circumstances, we have organized a committee of credible people to account for the money sent from the public. The statement said.
And the number that people are required to send money to is 0783220197 which is registered in names Asha Kaaja.

It is said that no one parties more than a Ugandan and this adage has for long been proven to be true especially in East Africa where Ugandans seem not to get tired when it comes to new ways of partying and new hangouts. Radio City’s presenter Bryan Kella McKenzie has been in the forefront of coming up with new ideas to give something new for Ugandans to enjoy themselves.
After his successful series of silent discos he has been organising in and outside Kampala, the presenter decided to take it a notch higher by introducing something new he called ‘Obunuzi’ (Runyankore for sweetness) in which he incorporate live acoustic performances into his silent disco concept which worked wonders on its first edition that took place on Thursday June 8th at Bugolobi-based Monot Bar and Lounge.
“In 2015, I held a private show in Mbarara where we had only guitars and vocalists; we decided to use our wireless headphones to listen to the sound of the acoustic amplified and straight to the earlier… The experience was too sweet, but then we didn’t have enough equipment to make it a big show.” He explained to www.chano8.com about how the whole idea started.
With this being the first edition, he had a strong line up of artistes to kick start the sweet experience where performances are so up close and personal, you can easily think it’s exclusively for only individuals. The line up of Allan Toniks, Quela’s Joe Kahiri and Melo-voiced Naava Grey did not disappoint on the night.
The trio showing of some vocal prowess bellowed their messages directly into the ears of their audience with the glowing headsets transmitting every detail of the sweetness in the melodies.
When McKenzie who was the host took to stage and introduced the event, the lights glowing on the headsets from the audience seemed to get even brighter as if to say ‘we feel you’. Allan Toniks was first on stage armed with an acoustic guitar. As he plucked away complimenting his sweet voice, McKenzie sat next to him and moderated proceedings as the crowd mostly of excited young ladies sang along.
Toniks performed most of his popular songs like That Girl, Mungatto, Nsubiza,Tugende Tukyekole, Nzewuwo and Oli Kumulamwa but then the sing-along session got louder when he did the song that announced his entry onto the music scene Beera Nange forcing some of the ladies off their seats.
Toniks performance has set the tone for the evening and when Joe Kahiri took to the stage next, the Obunuzi shouts got even more vivid as he put up another master act with had a mixture of poetry Kiga folk lore and acoustics with most of his songs in Rukiga with African jazz flavour. He crowned it all with a Kiga dance also known as Kizino to the delight of the crowd.
The evening’s performances were closed by Naava Grey who was instead backed up by a keyboard and vocalist Jacinta instead of the acoustic guitar and when she engaged the crowd asking them to join her, they duly obliged and turned the place that had been silent into some kind of karoeke session. The fans kept interrupting her with ‘requests’, ‘dedications and ‘replays’.
Her songs like Soka Lami , Alib’omu , Ninga Omuloge, Ndiwano, Kyusa and Sitaki remain popular but just like in the case of Toniks, it was an old hit Nteredde that got the fans more excited. They sang and danced like there was no tomorrow.
“I have enjoyed myself, this is so wonderful. Thanks McKenzie for the lovely Obunuzi idea. I am a big fan of Naava Grey and i have enjoyed her performance today and can’t wait for more” said an excited fan who identified herself only as Berbie.
And indeed she will have a chance to enjoy Obunuzi again as McKnzie said this will happen every first Thursday of the month at the same venue. Entry fee is 30,000/- with Nile Gold and Radio City in full support. The fan continued late into the night with 3 Djays playing on 3 different channels for the crowd to choose from.

Bebe Cool took to his Facebook page where he posted photos of him with Jason Derulo and captioned them saying. “#cokestudioafrica Collaboration with Jason Derulo. Uganda X USA, #Gagamelinternational.”
However Chano8 talked to Richard Klebason the Gagamel Phamily manager who travelled alongside Bebe and this is what he told us in relation to the collabo.
“Yesterday was their first studio session. They had an amazing session that involved writing the lyrics bout they haven’t disclosed the details of the song like the title.”
Bebe Cool fans did not give this dear ears but they took to social media to show support of Bebe Cool’s upcoming project with the ‘Swalla’ singer and we shall keep you informed on any new developments concerning this highly anticipated collabo. Once this project is done, it is expected to raise Bebe Cool’s US fan base to the next level.

American socialite, model and actress Amber Rose went nude again on Instagram last Friday night, after posting a pantless photo of her to promote her third annual SlutWalk, a Los Angeles event she created with the goal of promoting female empowerment, combating gender inequality and putting an end to victim-blaming by addressing the double-standards placed on woman.
However, the Amber’s disappointment, the photo that completely exposed her nakedness from the waist down was removed by Instagram after a few hours, as it violated the site’s ‘no-nudity policy’.
“We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram,” Instagram states in their community guidelines.
In retaliation, Rose laughed off Instagram’s decision of deleting her photo by posting a video of her rolling her eyes and accompanied it with these words below.
“When IG deletes ur fire a– feminist post but you really don’t give a f—- because everyone picked it up already,” she captioned the video adding the hashtags “#amberroseslutwalk” and “#bringbackthebush.
As if that was not enough, Rose also took to Twitter where she posted the same photo although it still remains. “#Amberroseslutwalk,” she captioned the image, linking to the official site of the event.
Twitter users remained mostly in support of Rose with some questioning what her 4-year-old son Sebastian would think of the photo.

It seems Striker Entertainment’s rapper Bigtril learnt quite a number of interesting things from his recently concluded Nigeria media tour. As we talk, his fan base in Naija land has broadened especially basing on the fact that he was hosted on different Nigerian radio and TV stations where he promoted his music from.
It’s not long ago since he came back home and as he spoke on UBC TV’s Horizon Vibe show hosted by Calvin Da Entertainer yesterday the 9th of June, the ‘Pretty Girls’ hit maker urged fellow Ugandan artistes to also take a toue to Nigeria like he did.
“I would like to urge every Ugandan artiste to take a tour to Nigeria if you have the resources” Bigtril said while asked to share the experience he had in the country. Well Nigeria’s music industry is by far one of Africa’s vibrant industries that has successful artistes like D’Banj, 2 Face Idibia, P Square, WizKid among others, without forgetting music producers like Don Jazzy.
Well, during the trip, ‘Trizzy One Time’ as he calls himself, was able to shoot his ‘Bad Gyal Ting’ song’s video there and at the same time releasing a collabo song dubbed ‘Faya’ with Seyi Shay one of the leading female stars in Nigeria.
Basing on the good reception Ugandan artistes’ collabos with Nigerians have been receiving, we believe Bigtril’s advice to his fellow Ugandan artistes is inevitable. “There is a lot of professionalism in Nigeria music industry, it is more vibrant and more competitive” Bigtril added.
Talking about this, lack professionalism is one of the things dragging Uganda’s music back but if at Ugandan artistes borrowed a leaf from Nigerians, we would even be in better place than we are.

On Tuesday, BET announced that Yvonne Chaka Chaka would be honoured with the 2017 BET International Global Good Star and Power award.
Upon this announcement, Yvonne announced that she was initially shocked when she heard the news but is “deeply humbled” to be recognized by a brand that she loves.
“I love BET, I watch their channels but I always thought it was more for the young people. So when I was told that I am nominated, I was deeply humbled because they are recognizing me for respecting my talent and the responsibility it comes with it.” she said.
Yvonne added that she remembers watching US musician Chaka Khan being honoured in 2013 and that she never imagined she would one day join that list.
“Knowing the power of my talent helped me to be able to help people. Most of my work to advocate for education and good health has been done in the continent, but it was only because people already knew who Yvonne Chaka Chaka was that I got the opportunity.” she said.
The musician said she hoped young artists learn that pursuing your dreams and knowing that your talent can help change other people’s lives is rewarding.
The musician will be jetting off to Los Angeles on June 20, ahead of the swanky awards ceremony on June 29.
The BET international Global Good Star and Power award aims to honour individuals whose efforts help make a positive change in different parts of the world.
It is pretty difficult for an artiste to commit himself to one lady and it’s almost impossible for two musicians to start up a family together but Nutty Neithan and Empress are proving that their love is stronger than what people expected.
The two musicians are expecting their second child and despite last year’s stunt of pushing a song where it was reported that Fille and Nutty Neithan were dating, nothing more has come up regarding cheating rumours of the two.
Already the two musicians have a two year old son and close sources to them tell us Empress is about six months pregnant and that the couple can’t wait to be parents again.
Even though they are not legally married but cohabiting, Empress and Nutty Neithan started dating over five years ago when they were still part of Maro’s Humble Management and their relationship kept on growing until they decided to stay together.
Nutty Neithan is known for songs like ‘Walk To work’, ‘Lwaki Tonsasira’, ‘Follow my rules’ with Mun G and ‘Bakuwe Kyonwa’ while Empress is famed for songs like ‘Big Masavu’, ‘Empress’ and others.
Mad Rat and Chiko are by far some of the funniest comedians in Uganda and their stage blend is one of the things that have kept them on top of their game. Through the years, they have proven they can truly crack people to tears and those who never missed their showcases at the Centenary Park based Laftaz Comedy Lounge and other venues, will testify to this.
Are you a fan or a well wisher who enjoys their dozes of laughter? Their first ever one man comedy show dubbed Nseko Buseko With Mad Rat and Chiko slated for Friday the 7th of July at Theatre Labonita is something you might not want to miss.
Chano8 talked to one of the comedians Chiko and this is what he had to say. “It is the first show and we promise the best on that day. Our fans should expect new and fresh content.”
Organised by Pixel Media, the show will not only happen at Labonita but will head to six other districts namely Jinja at Laftaz Dam Waters, Mbarara at Ice Lounge, Masaka at Maria Flow, Mukono at Satelite Beach, Fort Portal at Restaurant Gardens and finally Mable at Thatch Gardens on yet to be announced dates.
Chano8 further talked to Galaxy FM’s Andrew Kyamagero the CEO Pixel Media the organisers and here is what he said.
“What people should expect is a show that is going to be the first of its kind for the duo, these two boys have what we call clean comedy, they will make you laugh but they will not utter obscene words. As Pixel Media, we strongly believe in this brand and they are the new making of comedy.”
“Expect a full blast kind of show, we are not going to have curtain raisers as comedians but we will have maybe a Dj who will be grooving up the people before they get on stage.” Andrew concluded

Musician Phil Collins was rushed to hospital after suffering a dramatic fall in a hotel, forcing him to cancel his London shows yesterday.
According to a message posted on the singer’s official Facebook page, the 66-year-old tripped and fell and badly gashed his head following his concert on Sunday night, after a more than ten-year break from touring.
“Phil has had stitches for a severe gash on his head close to his eye following his first return to the stage in ten years and it is said that he is recovering well but will be kept under observation for 24 hours.” the post read
A spokesperson said Phil suffers from “drop foot” as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk’.
“Phil suffers from “drop foot” as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk. He rose in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and slipped in his hotel room, hitting his head in the fall on a chair.” He said
The Royal Albert Hall shows will therefore be rearranged for November 26 and 27 this year. All tickets for today June 8 will be valid for November 26 and tickets for June 9 will be valid for November 27.
Phil hadn’t been on tour in over ten years prior to that evening, but had made a triumphant return to the London stage at his Not Dead Yet tour.
The music icon though had to use a walking stick to make his entrance, and stayed seated for the entirety of the gig following major back surgery in 2015.

Anita Fabiola could be arguably one of the sexiest socialites and fashionistas in the country. Yesterday the 7th of June was her 23rd birthday and it almost turned out into a nightmare when Urban TV’s motor-mouthed Sqoop On Sqoop show host Tina also known as ‘Tina Fierce’ on social media, negatively replied a Tweet from one of Fabiola’s friends wishing her a happy birthday in what later turned into a fierce cyber battle.
Tina replied to a tweet from Fabiola’s friend identified as Tracy Gwambe that read; “She’s Beautiful with huge brains, intelligent, a sweet soul and hardworking at that. Happy birthday darling @Aniefabie.” And shortly after the verbal war commenced.
Tina who according to Fabiola has all along been looking for a chance to be famous using her ( Fabiola’s) name criticised Tracy Gwambe’s tweet saying that she (Tracy) is Fabiola’s groupie and that Fabiola does not have huge brains but only uses her ‘genitals to survive’.
“Sounds colonial; why you pulling her legs talking bout big brains& all? I hate to crap on your parade but that’s not her forte” Tina said
Fabiola who has been acting in the ongoing local TV drama series ‘Second Chance’ instead rubbished Tina’s allegation saying that she is just an attention seeker trying to get content for her TV show in vain
“U wanted my attention now you got it boo. I’ll let you get famous for a few minutes before you go back to being a fat and ugly angry fool.” Fabiola replied.
However, the Tweets kept flying in although both of them later broke the Twitter feud rules by blocking each other and deleting some of the tweets off their feeds but Chano8 managed to get some of the screen shots as the battle was ongoing.

The return of the Ice Cream and Cake Festival has according to news from the corridors received a massive boost as celebrity stylist Brian Ahumuza commonly known as Abryanz injected a whooping 550 million to support the family event.
Abryanz who is a Ciroc ambassador and the chief organiser of the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards has not been common in the public domain for unknown reasons. However he seems to be making a big comeback too as a brand.
“The Abryanz brand is reputed for dealing with only the best. And the Kampala Ice Cream and Cake Festival is one such event. It exudes class and appeals to the exact demographic that our brand appeals to. That is why we are partnering with them on this edition,” Ahumuza said in an interview.
Our sources also told us that a number of other big brands have come on board to make the event scheduled to take place on 17th August at Uganda Museum a success. Among those giving the event a push are like Liquid Silk, Silk Events and Tweny Moments.
According to the organisers, a lot has been put in place for the event expected to be the best ever since its inception. There are many new items expected on the program to spice up things come D-Day. The chief organiser Mr. Solomon BW Muleyi while speaking about the preparations, had this to say;
“Uganda’s entertainment landscape has seen a lot of mediocrity. Festivals have lost meaning. But with the Kampala Ice and Cake Festival, we are going to redefine festivities. And because it is a family affair, we have tailored a horde of activities that will ensure that the kids and adults experience the entertainment in equal measures”. Muleyi told the media.
The festival will have a temporary kids park that will have several bouncy castles and blow-up swimming pools, complete with kid’s experts to orchestrate the fun. The adults will receive entertainment from all angles. But mostly, from tasting various cake and ice cream flavors. We will have cake bake-offs, flavor tasting competitions, boyfriend and husband competitions, atop the live band that will be playing,” He addedTweet

There is a passion Akon has towards Africa these past years that he wants to inflict on other Africans living abroad.
According to Akon, most of Africans living in America complain of being mistreated yet they have an option on coming back to Africa and settle back here.
“I always thought Africa is for Africans. So when I see African Americans dealing with all these issues, my first question is why don’t they just go back home.” he said during an interview with Aljazeera a few days ago.
He added that in Africa, they will be treated fairly because they will be home.
When asked how it can be possible for a person born in the US and lived over there his entire life can find refuge in a foreign country on a foreign continent, the ‘Ghetto’ musician said that it starts with just a visit.
“How many African Americans do you see out there who even don’t consider Africa a vacation place. They even don’t go there for knowledge. This mentality should stop,” he said. “The system in America was never built for black people. The documents have never been altered. It has always been white first.”
Akon, who is a Senegalese music singer has sold over 30million records worldwide and besides being a musician, he’s an activist and philanthropist.
It’s been so long since Uganda last had an action-packed weekend like the one we are going to have on the 30th of this month where African heavy weight artistes will battle it out for supremacy.
We are still not sure whether it was intentional or by mistake but come that date, Uganda is going to receive two international artistes performing on the same day. We are talking about Oliver Mtukudzi and PJ Powers.
Both are power horses on the African music market and to even make it worse, our very own Jose Chameleone will also be having his ‘Hit after Hit’ concert at Lugogo Cricket oval.
PJ Powers will be having her ‘Jabulani’ charity concert at Kampala Serena Hotel courtesy of the ‘Girl for the Girl Up Initiative Uganda, while Oliver Mtukudzi will be at Imperial Royal Hotel for the ‘Lock Down Concert’ Courtesy of Mavuno Church Kampala.
PJ Powers the South African legendary musician behind songs like ‘Jabulai’, ‘There is an answer’, and ‘Soweto’ among others has performed in Uganda once before while the Zimbabwean legendary artiste famed for songs like ‘Todi’, Wasakara and ‘Neria among others has previously performed in Uganda three times.
Those aside, Chameleone is having his first concert in two years which promises to be the best of all the concerts he has ever had but the question is where will you be that evening?

Whether throwing a Dj’s Laptop in a swimming pool was a publicity stunt or not for singer Mawzy Radio, news reaching our desk is that he might have to dearly pay back following a notice of intention to sue issued to him by Real Sounds through Sam Kabanda Advocates.
The whole scandal of Radio real names Sekibogo Moses throwing the Dj’s laptop in water came up while he had joined the rest of the mourners who had gathered at the late Ivan Semwanga’s Muyenga based mansion for his vigil on Sunday the 28th of May. However, what is ground is that on top of the notice, the ‘Neera’ singer was asked to pay a compensation fee of Ug Shs 56 million to the Dj or else be dragged to the courts of law.
According eye witnesses who told Chano8, Radio is said to have approached the Dj identified as Lubega Moses who was entertaining the mourners and asked him to play his songs. Politely enough, the Dj told him how he was supposed to get instructions to play any songs from the vigil’s Master of ceremonies there by directing him (Radio) to the MC.
Instead of taking the Dj’s advice, Radio instead furiously snatched the Dj’s laptop and hard disk which he threw in the swimming pool although last week he came and refuted these allegations.Tweet

If you are trying to add tone and definition to your abdominal muscles, then you have no doubt run across an abdominal toning belt and wondered if it might be able to help you reach your goal.
The short answer is that an abdominal toning belt can help you get the look you desire, but that doesn’t mean you are going to get access to great abs with the push of a button. Rather, an abdominal toning belt is an accessory that, if used properly with a healthy diet and exercise, can get you the results you desire.
Therefore, you will not get great abs simply by using an abdominal toning belt, but an abdominal toning belt can help you get better-looking abs when used in conjunction with diet and exercise.
How Abdominal Toning Belts Work
An abdominal toning belt is designed to force your abdominal muscles to contract. This works the abdominal muscles and, over time, may help you get them toned and defined. The problem is that abdominal toning belts are often marketed as simple tools to help you get fit quickly. But, if you are obese or do not do any other training outside of using an abdominal toning belt, you are not likely to see the results that you want. Abdominal toning belts do work to a degree and may be considered a miracle by some, but you need to use them properly in order to see results.
The Myth of Abdominal Toning Belts
Whether you have seen commercials endorsing abdominal toning belts or seen them in stores, you have likely seen videos or pictures of smiling fit people using them. What you don’t see is all the running, working out and dieting that goes into that person before they strap on an abdominal toning belt and start using it. The biggest myth about abdominal toning belts is that you will put it on, use it for a few days and start to see results. If you don’t do work on your body outside of your abdominal toning belt, you will not see the same results that you have seen on commercials and other advertisements.
Sweating It Out
Wearing a body wrap belt underneath your clothing while working out helps to increase sweat production so you lose water weight. If you wrap the slimmer belt around your stomach while doing cardiovascular activity, it will help raise your core temperature, producing more sweat as your body tries to cool itself. But according to exercise science Len Kravitz of the University of New Mexico, staying hydrated is essential for normal bodily functions and for peak exercise performance. What’s more, the fluid to produce additional sweat will not necessarily come from your waistline.
Putting a squeeze on fat
When tightly wrapped, a slimmer belt will compress your fat cells. Even if you are just getting started in your weight loss journey, the slimmer belt can help you look smaller. However, once you decompress, your cells will gradually revert to their normal size and shape
If you are out of shape and have weak core muscles, wrapping a slimmer belt around your midsection sucks in your stomach and straightens your back. The slimmer belt forces you to improve your posture since it is difficult to slouch while wearing one. But wearing a compression belt can keep you from using your abdominal and postural muscles, and can contribute over time to greater muscle weakness and worsening posture.
Complimenting Your Abdominal Toning Belt
In order to maximize results and get your abdominal toning belt to work for you, there are a few things that you need to do. First, if you’re serious about toning, strengthening and defining your abdominal muscles, you need to start eating right. Many people cannot get their abdominal muscles to look great because they have a layer of fat over top of them. In order to get rid of that excess fat, you need to start eating healthier and start exercising regularly.
Create a calorie deficiency in your body in order to force your body to start to lose excess weight. By dieting and getting the right amount of cardio exercise, performing upwards of 250 minutes of rhythmic endurance exercise weekly. Walking, running, cycling and swimming are all good choices. To improve muscle tone and posture. Perform resistance training for all your major muscle groups on two to three non-consecutive days weekly, and perform whole-body flexibility exercises at least once or twice per week.
From there, you can use your abdominal toning belt to start to define the abdominal muscles. By doing this, you’re using the abdominal toning belt to compliment the rest of your hard work. An abdominal toning belt is not a miracle worker, but it can help you develop your abdominal muscles over time.Tweet
