SteelFit Testimonial: I used both ABS OF STEEL and BUNS OF STEEL in my last competition prep and was amazed by the results I got in not only my abdominals, but especially in my legs and glutes (the two most difficult areas in my body). They really work and have become a staple part of my contest preparation. They are truly amazing products!
