23 Mar Here’s Why You Plateau—and How Emsculpt NEO Can Help
Eating a healthy diet and doing regular exercise has limits. Even hardcore exercise and stringent diets have boundaries. That’s why RefinedMD offers Emsculpt NEO, the latest contouring and sculpting tool to help you take your body goals to the next level safely, quickly, and effectively. It builds muscle while simultaneously burning fat so that you can bust through the plateaus you’ve been struggling with. But first, let’s take a look at why we plateau on our body journey, starting with muscles.
If you’ve been lifting weights, whether, with machines, dumbbells, or another modality, you’ve probably found that there’s a cap on how high you can go on weights. This is even true of bodybuilders, so don’t feel too bad. When you reach this mark, there are things you can do like changing rep numbers, sets, or switching up modalities, but ultimately everyone has their peak. However, few people have the time to continue to push and prod, looking for a way to get to that next level. That’s where Emsculpt comes in.
How Muscles Work
Our muscles get bigger (i.e. stronger and “toned”) in response to controlled stressors. When muscles are pushed just hard enough, micro-tears occur. These are “good” tears, and they can happen any time muscles are forced into a supramaximal contraction. They respond to these stressors by creating thicker tissue to strengthen the muscle for the next time this happens. However, there is only so much tissue that can be built up. Plus, any gym rat knows that injuries are common, especially when you start getting into heavier weights. A severe tear can bench you for weeks or months, even requiring surgery.
Emsculpt NEO builds muscle in the same way, through supramaximal contractions. However, there is no risk like what you experience in the gym. The technology forces the muscles you want to contract—and only those muscles—into 20,000 such contractions in just 30 minutes. You can count on your muscles to respond in kind, creating new tissue to repair the micro-tears Emsculpt NEO creates. You’ll need to feed your muscles protein and give them a rest after Emsculpt sessions, just like you would if you did 20,000 lunges at the gym (if you could!).
Emsculpt NEO builds muscles just like you already do, but without any effort or sweat on your part. This is what makes it the ideal treatment to start a new fitness regimen or take your current one to the next level. It was built for breaking plateaus and establishing a solid, safe foundation for muscle-building. However, no matter how big your muscles get, they’re never going to look “toned” if they have too much fat covering them. That’s why Emsculpt NEO was invented.
Combining Muscle with Fat Reduction
The HIFEM technology of Emsculpt NEO combines muscle-building with targeted fat cell reduction. While muscles are being contracted, fat cells are literally getting burned away. These cells are then safely absorbed and expelled by the body in the days and weeks following the treatment. This is not a weight loss procedure. Rather, Emsculpt NEO helps you target those really stubborn areas that aren’t responding to diet and gym workouts.
Everyone tells you that you can’t spot reduce, but that’s only true when it comes to diet and exercise. You know that when you lose weight, you don’t usually get a say in where it happens—but you do with Emsculpt NEO. We are all born with a unique fat distribution, and that isn’t going to change with diet and exercise alone. Emsculpt NEO gives you the control to determine where fat melts away so that you can showcase muscles like never before.
Get Started in Time for Summer Results
Building muscle and losing fat isn’t immediate with Emsculpt NEO, and most clients need 4 – 6 sessions for the best results (spaced 4 weeks apart). That means that if you start your Emsculpt series now, you’ll have full results by the end of summer. Get stronger, healthier, and more confident while you kick back and relax in easy 30-minute sessions.
