14 Jan Here’s Why THAT Glute Machine Doesn’t Work—but Emsculpt NEO Does
If you’ve ever expressed an interest in a bigger, more defined booty, you’ve seen ads on your social media for that machine (which we shall not name) that guarantees the badonkadonk you’ve always dreamt of in just 10 minutes per day. At RefinedMD in Los Gatos, we’ve worked with a lot of people who were duped into shelling out cash for a machine that ultimately doesn’t work. It debuted at the perfect time, right when the pandemic started and gyms closed. Plus, for around $200, it was affordable for a lot of people. It also promised to be kind on the knees, making squats seemingly doable even for those with knee issues. But guess what? It doesn’t work—negative reviews abound. We’ve taken any direct references to “Dat Butt” machine out, but you’ll get the gist.
First, let’s consider how it supposedly works. It’s basically a machine that assists you in doing squats. There’s a seat, handle bars, and that’s it. According to one reviewer, “A quick Google search leads me to believe it’s another gimmicky contraption that promises results with minimal effort. I’ve never seen one in a gym so that should tell you all you need to know. No one wants to hear this but you have to get uncomfortable in order to change.” Another user said simply, “I just got this and I am so disappointed!”
As for others, one reviewer reveals, “I’ve been using this for 3 days now and feel absolutely nothing in my butt and it hurts my back. I’ve followed every video I could find thinking I was doing something wrong, but I only feel it in my legs which is not why I bought it!” Somebody else pointed out, “I keep getting ads about this product and it’s sickening. I’m sorry but you got scammed. You can’t train your glutes by sitting down. When you apply pressure to a muscle (by sitting down the whole time) you’re deactivating that muscle. Just do bodyweight until you can use dumbbells and/or eventually, a barbell.” In short, there simply isn’t the science behind the machine—but just because something sounds too good to be true doesn’t mean it’s automatically a scam. If you really want maximum results with not just minimal effort, but no effort, we have the solution.
Emsculpt NEO to the Rescue
Dat Booty machine doesn’t work because it’s not targeting muscles and it’s not forcing them into supramaximal contractions. Emsculpt NEO is a machine that forces the glutes, or a variety of other muscles, into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes—and burns fat at the same time due to its HIFEM+ tech. Ultimately, the body doesn’t know or care how these contractions occur. Whether it’s lunges with weights or a leg press machine, you need the right contractions at the right place to get the results you want. Emsculpt NEO gives it to you while you sit back and relax. When that reviewer said that you have to experience discomfort if you want to achieve change, that’s partially true. Emsculpt NEO isn’t necessarily painful or uncomfortable, but you’re definitely going to feel it the next day. Your muscles are undergoing the exact same contractions as if you just did 20,000 lunges. However, this is a truly injury-free approach to strength training. It removes the risk of strains and sprains while only targeting the muscles you want to grow.
Emsculpt NEO is a Complement, Not a Replacement
Still, you can’t bid adieu to lunges and squats for good. Emsculpt NEO can help you break through plateaus, start a new regimen, or take your fitness to the next level—but it’s not a replacement for a good old-fashioned workout. A series of 4 – 6 sessions are recommended for most people, and this is followed by maintenance appointments every six months. In short, this means that there is no magical fix for fitness but there are ways to progress and boost your efforts without spending your days slaving away on a social media-driven machine.
