20,000 Crunches in 30 Minutes, For Real?

Is 2019 the year that you’re going to get the abs you’ve always wanted? If you’re hoping to achieve certain body goals this year, you’ve probably joined a gym and may have even signed up for a meal delivery service.

While a healthy diet and regular exercise are essential to a lean and toned physique, there’s a way to speed up your body toning goals with a treatment that performs 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes.

Is this for real? Not only is Emsculpt real, it’s the first and only technology that reduces fat and increases muscle, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

Continue reading to learn how you can get a flatter stomach and firmer buttocks, while Emsculpt does all the work.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that can simultaneously burn fat and build muscle through forced contractions.

It is also FDA-approved for strengthening, toning, and firming of abdominal muscles and buttocks.

How Can Emsculpt Help You Do 20,000 Crunches in 30 Minutes?

While other non-surgical devices reduce fat through heat and cooling, Emsculpt relies on electromagnetic waves to induce muscle hypertrophy and lipolysis for a leaner and more sculpted body.

Unlike voluntary muscle contractions that we achieve through physical training, Emsculpt’s high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology causes muscles to contract at various intervals without a period of rest.

Consequently, Emsculpt produces 20,000 supramaximal contractions in a 30-minute session that are equivalent of 20,000 crunches or 20,000 squats.

How Is Emsculpt Different Than a Typical Workout?

For starters, during a workout, the individual must exert effort and energy to facilitate muscle contraction and growth. However, with Emsculpt, women and men are able to comfortably recline while the machine completes 20,000 crunches for you.

While ab or butt day at the gym is usually performed with a mentality of “no pain, no gain,” Emsculpt is effective and painless.

Nevertheless, the initial pull during treatment, may surprise some patients. It may also take a few minutes to ease into your Emsculpt session, as the device alternates between contracting abdominal or gluteal muscles and a tapping motion, which prevents lactic acid build-up.

Does Emsculpt Really Work?

In seven independent clinical studies, Emsculpt yielded an average 16 percent increase in muscle mass and 19 percent reduction in subcutaneous fat. While it typically takes 4 treatments spaced two-to-three days apart to achieve these results, many patients note that their abdomen looks flatter and feels tighter even after the first session.

Muscle toning and fat reduction continue to improve over the next three-to-six months, and benefits are best maintained through a healthy diet and fitness regimen.
