How long does it take to get abs?
The length of time it takes for one to get abs will vary depending on the amount of fat they need to lose. On average, men need to reduce their body fat to 10% before abs are noticeable and women to 20%.
Is it possible to get a six pack in a month?
Setting yourself a goal of getting a six pack in a month is very unrealistic. Lowering your body fat is a gradual process and the American Council on Exercise says to expect to lose 1% of body fat per month – so depending on how much you have to lose; it is probably best to set yourself a more realistic goal.
What should I eat to get abs?
Building abs is not just about working out in the gym, having a good diet is very important.
Protein is one of the most valuable macronutrients as your body burns calories whilst breaking it down. Eating enough protein will help you to build lean muscle as well of burning unwanted body fat.
Post workout meals should still contain carbs. Eating too much of anything will cause you gain weight but eating natural or starchy carbs, especially post workout can really benefit you as during this time they are less likely to be turned into body fat.
Although there are lots of low fat diets out there, there are still plenty of foods that contain healthy fats such as nuts and fish that will help you to burn more fat and keep your insulin levels stable which can prevent additional body fat gain. In moderation, these polyunsaturated and monosaturated fats should be included in your diet plan.
Finally, as with all healthy diets, be sure to include plenty of vegetables as these contain fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which are important for helping you to build six pack abs.
Can everyone get a six pack?
In theory, everyone should be able to get a six pack. As we have mentioned above, it is not something that is going to happen instantly and setting yourself realistic goals is important. Both men and women can achieve 6 packs and with a controlled diet and regular exercise this is possible, as long as you are losing fat and building muscle, you should expect to see results.
How can Emsculpt treatment help to get a six pack?
Emsculpt treatment uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate super-powered contractions to help create stronger, firmer, and more defined muscles in the treated area.
As the muscles contract during exercise, it causes a strain on the muscle fibres. This strain results in a natural restoration process where stronger and thicker muscle tissue replaces the damaged tissue. This process is how muscle growth occurs during exercise and strength training.
Muscle growth or muscle hypertrophy requires a huge amount of energy and the body releases fatty acids to help with this. The acids work to break down surrounding fat deposits and convert them to energy which is called lipolysis. Lipolysis is the process which reduces fat in the area being worked.
Emsculpt can effectively replicate the muscle growth and lipolysis process by using HIFEM (Highly Focused Electromagnetic) energy to produce powerful supramaximal contractions. These contractions work the muscle a lot more than compared to a manual work out and a single session of Emsculpt treatment can stimulate over 20,000 contractions to the ab muscles which is the equivalent to 20,000 sit ups or crunches in 30 minutes.
How soon can I see results from Emsculpt?
The results from Emsculpt treatment start to become visible within 2 -4 weeks following the last treatment session. We recommend that patients have 4 treatment sessions spaced 2 -3 days apart for the best results.
We also recommend that patients continue their diet and exercise regime as this will only help to boost the results from treatment and you may find you notice your core feeling stronger before you see the visible results.
What other areas can Emscult target?
Emsculpt is also suitable for building muscle in other areas of the body including the buttocks, legs and arms.
