Whether you’re a hardcore fitness enthusiast or just eager to get in better shape, achieving 6 pack abs has probably crossed your mind at some point.
As we all know, 6 pack abs are elusive for most people. Obtaining well-defined ab muscles requires hard work, dedication, and even genetics play a role – which is why many people can never get past that last layer of stubborn belly fat standing between them and their ultimate beach body stomach.
The good news is that now, thanks to a new non-surgical body contouring device called Emsculpt, 6 pack abs may be closer than you think.
Emsculpt is one of the latest body sculpting technologies to hit the market and the first device of its kind to be FDA approved. It’s FDA clearances states that the device is intended for improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and the development of firmer abdomen, as well as for use on the buttock, arms, and calves.
What catches most people’s attention is a 30-minute Emsculpt session is meant to simulate the effects of 20,000 sit-ups! Given those amazing numbers, it should be no surprise that from downtown NYC to the Hamptons, busy New Yorkers are eager to get in on the device.
Emsculpt uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to produce high-intensity muscle contractions. When the device is targeting the abdomen, a 30-minute session simulates the effects of 20,000 situps. But can the device deliver those hard-to-get 6 pack abs you’ve always wanted?
The short answer is yes.
Emsculpt can help you get abs because the device breaks down fat and increases muscle tone – meaning it will enable you to better see the ab muscles hidden by belly fat. With that being said, Emsculpt is by no means a silver bullet. In order to achieve chiseled abs, Emsculpt patients must have minimal belly fat to begin with. In other words, the device is most helpful for men and women who are already fit, yet need a bit of help shedding that last stubborn layer of belly fat. Emsculpt can still be effective for individuals with more substantial belly fat, but 6 pack abs won’t be a realistic outcome in those cases. For these patients with a thicker layer of abdominal fat, removing excess stomach fat with liposuction prior to Emsculpt may be a good option to consider to achieve the best results.
