Definition of Side Plank:
As per Google: “A Side Plank is a challenging posture that strengthens the abdomen, legs, and arms, as well as promotes mental focus and balance”
Do you want a flat stomach, but hate holding the plank pose or the ever-challenging side plank pose? Lucky for you, Emsculpt can help you get the abdominal definition you desire, without the heavy workout. Emsculpt works using a non-invasive HIFEM® procedure which uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to trigger what’s called supramaximal contractions, not achievable through voluntary contractions.[i]
The plank be it regular or side plank pose, an isometric core strength exercise that involves maintaining a position similar to a push-up for the maximum possible time, is difficult and doesn’t quickly yield the desired results. One 30-minute Emsculpt session produces nearly 20,000 muscle contractions. When exposed to strong contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such an extreme condition. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and sculpting your body. [ii]
If there are aspects of your body you’d like to tighten up, Slender Me Medical’s Emsculpt procedure may be right for you. It’s easy and provides quick results, which is precisely why such body-shaping tools are ruling the noninvasive realm. Emsculpt creates muscle definition and burns fat in your butt and around your abs and obliques. It’s cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for the “improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, development of firmer abdomen, [and] strengthening, toning, firming of the buttocks.”[iii] It also recently gained approval for treating biceps, triceps, thighs, and calves.
Emsculpt not only destroys fat cells but simultaneously builds muscle fibers for more defined abs and rounder rear-ends. Emsculpt is an alternative to invasive tummy tuck surgery. After pregnancy, many women are instructed not to exercise their abdomen, because the rectus sheath has been so thinned out. And, when they do exercise, it increases the inter-abdominal pressure, and that pushes on the muscle, thinning it even more.[iv] One company-sponsored study reported a 10 percent reduction in diastasis recti, the abdominal separation that occurs commonly in pregnancy after using Emsculpt.[v] This is because Emsculpt can target the very muscles that are affected during pregnancy, prompting them to strengthen and grow.
People of all ages can benefit from Emsculpt; older patients are certainly candidates as well. Both women and men can build muscle and sculpt their body using Emsculpt. It is ideal for people to feel they aren’t getting enough definition with all the workouts that they do. If you have a regular workout practice, but still aren’t happy with the way your body looks, it’s time to consider Emsculpt.
Come into Slender Me Medical and see how simple it is; our experienced technicians will get you hooked up to a machine, and then you can sit back and relax as Emsculpt emits electromagnetic pulses that strengthen your muscle fibers and burn unwanted fat.
It’s worth noting, that Emsculpt and other nonsurgical fat-reducing technologies are intended to act as supplements to active, healthy lifestyles — not substitutes for mindful eating or regular exercise. In fact, Emsculpt can complement an exercise routine; as it builds muscle in your abs, you’ll find the plank pose and other core workouts easier to hold. The procedure works best for people who are already relatively fit and want to firm up.
Emsculpt recommends that users do four 30-minute sessions over a two-week period for optimal results. Interestingly, though, the company says the best results aren’t seen until three months post-treatment. It also says you will see continued improvement up until the six-month mark. They report a 16% average increase in muscle mass and an impressive 96% patient satisfaction[vi]
