The Flex Mini® vs. Body Flex BT 100

The Body Flex BT100, also known as the John Abdo Bun and Thigh Doer, is a fitness device designed to promote fitness and development in the buttocks and thigh areas. According to product presentations, the Body Flex BT100 is 780% more effective than performing squats. Furthermore, it is designed to replace the use of gym equipment, providing consumers with an in home, collapsible, and storable fitness machine. The Body Flex BT100 is also promoted as a safer form of exercise than conventional bodyweight exercises, like lunges, step ups, and squats.

The Body Flex BT100 is said to target not only the buttocks, but all sides of the legs. This comprehensive approach is supposed to return faster, safer exercise results. The device, when set up properly, stands to the height of the average personís chest. From a standing position, the user leans on a padded surface, grips handles, and pushes with her or his leg against a padded foot bar. By pushing or kicking the leg backwards, against the resistance of the device, the buttocks and thighs are worked. And the standing position prevents the back strain involved in other forms of exercise.
