Why Crunches and Squats Don’t Work

Does it seem like no matter how many crunches, lunges, or squats you do, you still aren’t getting the results you want? RefinedMD offers the latest toning technology, Emsculpt, that’s proven to give clients the results they cannot achieve at the gym. Emsculpt works by forcing the abs and/or buttocks to contract 20,000 in 30 minutes. That’s the equivalent of 20,000 crunches, squats, or lunges.

The vast majority of people simply cannot perform 20,000 of these exercises. Ab and glute exercises are an absolute must for achieving a shapely, toned aaesthetic. However, it is not just the quantity of contractions but the quality that matters. Even if a person had the time and stamina to perform 20,000 of these exercises, the quality of the exercise would quickly decline.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Muscles get toned by careful contraction, tearing, and rebuilding. In the rebuilding phase, muscles grow—as long as they are “fed” with a high-protein diet. However, there is a reason recommended “reps” are followed when at the gym. Any more than around 15 reps and 3 – 5 sets per exercise and the human body just doesn’t have the capacity to perform a quality crunch, squat, or lunge.

The body tires quickly with weight-building exercises. However, Emsculpt does all the work for you. In a rapid-fire half-hour session, magnetic technology forces the targeted muscles into inter superlative contractions. It’s identical to what is achieved in strength-training, but without any risk of getting tired or losing the quality of the maneuver.

Clients can expect to be sore afterward, especially if they are not currently strength training. After all, they did just complete 20,000 strength-training exercises. However, delayed onset muscle stress (DOMS) is similar to feeling sore after starting any other type of new routine. Soreness can be minimized with BCAA-infused water (a naturally occurring acid in the body), and it is important to consume at least 20 grams of protein after Emsculpt.
