We’ve said it before on Instagram, but nevertheless we’ll say it again here, you can go ahead and consider us your guinea pigs for fitness and science 😉
Five weeks ago, we started trying EMSCULPT by BTL Aesthetics, targeting hard to reach abdominal muscles we’ve had trouble activating. It was a week before Pride and the Fourth of July, and our fitness regimen was in a consistent streak, working out 4-5 times a week, at an hour to hour and a half.
At its basis, our summer workout routine wasn’t that much of a change from what we had already been doing. We had already spent the last year alone committing ourselves to a more highly active lifestyle, digging our heels even deeper into fitness of all kinds. From gym to class to cycling and then some. You name it, we did it.
The problem was, in the middle of chest, back, and even bicep exercises, we’d rely on our lower back muscles to stabilize more often than from our core. No matter how man abs and ass classes we could take, we struggled to make any sort of progress when it came to every abdominal muscle in our body.
And then came the injuries. Mostly for Chris, but Brock struggled too. Just not as much as Chris… Poor Chris.
We needed a change and we needed assistance. Enter: EMSCULPT.
The first and only FDA-cleared non-invasive body shaping procedure, EMSCULPT uses 2 applicators to deliver a HIFEM magnetic field technology that simultaneously builds muscle while burning fat. The energy induces approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per session which are normally not achieved by voluntary muscle action. This is equivalent to 20,000 crunches or squats in 30 minutes…
The contractions result in a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also breakdown fat, making it the only technology that destroys fat while simultaneously building muscle, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. Oh, and it’s non-thermal, non-ionizing, and non-radiating.
This also provides a safe and completely non-invasive alternative to the popular Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, which comes with a high risk and significant downtime. EMSCULPT delivers the appearance of a more athletic, toned butt as compared to an injected full butt appearance. Sign us up! ? ?
The proof, however, is in the results, and you can see our changes below. Without changing our fitness regimen one bit, the greatest difference came in our internal obliques and transverse abdominus.
Consider us guinea pigs for fitness and science, and consider us hooked 🙂 We’ll be trying EMSCULPT on our arms and calves next!
