Six pack abs are a desired part of having a sculpted physique. Both men and women will spend countless hours inside the gym to get a contoured core. Studies suggest that six-pack abs are not always achievable, even with a strict diet and exercise. Some people’s body does not respond to ab-workouts compared to others. A lot of it comes down to not having the genetics that allows them to get rid of belly fat and lower their percentage of body fat to less than 10%, the requirement for seeing definition in the stomach area.
Fortunately, advancements in the body contouring industry are designed to help people achieve the aesthetic of chiseled abdominals more attainable than ever.
Emsculpt Builds, Strengthens, and Tones muscles
Until recently, non-surgical body contouring treatments have focused on one part of body composition, which is fat reduction. While reducing belly fat is essential for abdominal definition, fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting and others overlook a significant part of body composition: muscle. Emsculpt can help by providing the latest advancements in body sculpting. It utilizes electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions, which help strengthen and tone the targeted muscle group.
How the Body Builds Muscle
The best way to build muscles is to stimulate and repair them. Exercise causes the muscle to contract, which strains muscle fibers. The body then repairs the damaged muscle tissue with the creation of new muscle fibers. These new fibers are bigger and stronger. Muscle stimulation and repair require a lot of energy and stimulate muscle hypertrophy.
The body releases free fatty acids that break down nearby fat deposits for energy, called lipolysis. It reduces fat in the treatment area, as well as muscle development.
An Intense Ab Workout
Emsculpt reproduces the process of muscle stimulation and repair through involuntary muscle contractions. It utilizes Highly Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to produce supramaximal contractions, which work out the muscles beyond anything manual exercise can achieve. One 30-minute Emsculpt session delivers more than 20,000 super powerful contractions, the same as 20,000 crunches or sit-ups.
