03 Sep Decrease Gym Injuries with Emsculpt NEO
“Strong is the new skinny” is more than just a motto—it’s a reminder that strength-building is a critical part of staying healthy. That’s why at RefinedMD, we offer Emsculpt NEO. It’s the second generation of Emsculpt, the technology that forces muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. However, unlike the original Emsculpt, Emsculpt NEO not only builds muscles but also burns fat. In other words, you can decrease unwanted fat while also getting gains exactly where you want them. This leads to the aesthetic you want, but Emsculpt NEO can also help you avoid gym injuries. Here’s how.
A lot of people had to dramatically change or even stop their usual strength-training routine during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that you’re getting back to it, you might have noticed you’re not as strong as you used to be. It takes time to gain muscle strength (and size!), and gym injuries from weight lifting are common no matter what. However, for those getting back into a routine, you’re especially at high risk of a gym injury that could bench you for weeks or even months.
The Risk of Muscle-Building
We get strong (AKA build muscle) by creating controlled micro-tears in muscle fibers. Of course, if the tear is too large it can cause serious pain. A muscle strain is an unwanted tear to the muscle, while a sprain is when the connective tissue (such as ligaments) get torn. Both can happen during traditional strength-training exercises—even in the most knowledgeable of athletes. Picking up a weight that’s just a little too heavy or performing a lift that’s just a tiny bit “off” can lead to months of recovery. Emsculpt NEO can help by strengthening muscles without any risk, and you can even burn fat to boot!
Until recently, the only way to build muscles was through exercise or manual labor. Talk to any bodybuilder, a real expert when it comes to getting gains, and you’ll hear a host of injury stories. Emsculpt NEO changed everything because this technology makes muscles perform the same movements under the same stressors as strength-building exercises, but you don’t have to do a thing. Supramaximal contractions are what muscles need in order to sustain micro-tears. The body then repairs itself with muscle fibers getting bigger and stronger during the repair process. However, the body doesn’t “care” or “know” whether this process occurs at the gym or at RefinedMD during an Emsculpt NEO session!
Why Burn Fat AND Build Muscle?
Most people want the best of both worlds. Strong isn’t just the new sexy, it’s also paramount for your health and safety. In fact, as early as our late twenties, we start experience sarcopenia—otherwise known as natural age-related muscle loss. It’s harder to build and keep muscle mass after our thirtieth birthday, but we need muscles to be healthy as we get older.
At the same time, a lot of people want to reduce the size of their fat cells. This can traditionally only be done with exercise, diet, and surgery. However, Emsculpt NEO offers a way to build muscles and burn fat at the same time thanks to HIFEM. That stands for high-intensity electromagnetic technology. Less fat can be a healthy move for many people, and if you’re just in it for aesthetics? That’s okay too! After all, you can’t show off those built muscles if you have too much fat covering them.
