06 Mar Emsculpt NEO: The Ultimate Gym Cheat
Let’s face it, a lot of people still aren’t comfortable going to the gym (whether you’re worried about your health or just can’t handle working out with a mask on). Fortunately, RefinedMD now has Emsculpt NEO, the latest iteration of the Emsculpt technology that forces targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. The OG Emsculpt was all about building, toning, and strengthening muscles. Emsculpt NEO combines that tech with HIFEM tech to simultaneously burn away unwanted fat. That’s like doing your cardio and strength training at once—but with no effort or sweat on your part.
It’s no wonder Emsculpt NEO is being called the “ultimate gym cheat” by RTE and has been hailed as a must-have by celebs including Kim Kardashian, Denise Richards, Drew Barrymore, and Megan Fox. Okay, obviously these celebs have exclusive access to home gyms, and you must keep in mind that Emsculpt NEO isn’t a replacement for workouts and a healthy diet. In fact, the best candidates for Emsculpt NEO are already in shape! It isn’t a weight-loss treatment, but rather a means of contouring and sculpting the body by targeting trouble areas of fat that won’t budge. Although Emsculpt NEO will tone and strengthen muscles regardless of size, it’s pretty tough to show off the results when too much fat is covering those muscles.
So, Emsculpt NEO isn’t totally a magical solution for your body goals—but it’s pretty close.
How Emsculpt NEO Works
When it comes to the science behind Emsculpt NEO, it’s pretty simple. We get bigger, stronger muscles when they perfectly contract. This is typically done when lifting something heavy, whether it’s a dumbbell or your own body weight. Your muscles don’t care how these contractions happen, they simply respond to these micro-injuries by developing a thicker tissue to withstand a similar force in the future. These thicker tissues are (you guessed it!) bigger muscles.
Just like in the real world (or the gym), muscle-building isn’t instantenous. You’re not going to notice any difference right after your Emsculpt NEO session, though you’ll quickly get a little sore. It’s going to take time for those muscles to rebuild, and you’ll start to see changes about one month after your first treatment. As for the fat-burning aspect of Emsculpt NEO, it’s the same thing: it takes time.
Planning Your Emsculpt NEO Sessions
Everyone needs multiple sessions for optimal results, with most clients requiring 4 – 6 initial treatments followed by maintenance sessions every six months. If you start your Emsculpt NEO regimen right now, you’ll be able to show off those results by the end of summer vacation. Whether you’ve plateaued at the gym, need a kick-start to get back into your workouts, or simply want to take your fitness to the next level, Emsculpt NEO can help you get there. Yes, it’s called a “gym cheat,” but it’s really a gym booster.
These treatments aren’t considered painful at all, but the sensation can be a bit strange for first-timers. Still, most clients can comfortably scroll through their phone, read, or catch up on shows during their 30-minute treatments. You can use Emsculpt NEO just about anywhere you’d typically want to get gains, and you can also enjoy back to back sessions.
How to Make the Most of Emsculpt NEO
To optimize results, treat your body like you just had a major workout (because you did). To support muscle growth, pack a protein snack with at least 20 grams to eat right after your treatment. You can also drink BCAA water right before, during, and after the treatment to minimize DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). You’ll want to give home or gym strength training a break for at least 48 hours after your Emsculpt NEO session to allow for healing and prevent damage to your muscles, but you can enjoy cardio the next day.
