With advancements in technology, patients can now choose non-invasive techniques like Emsculpt® to build and define their muscles.
The body sculpting treatment targets the abdominal area, buttocks, flanks, and thighs, simultaneously burning fat and toning muscles, leaving you noticeably toned, stronger, and lean.
Following your Emsculpt® treatment, you want to maintain a toned and fit aesthetic. To achieve this, you must maintain a stable weight with a dedicated exercise program to keep the muscles looking strong and the body contours lean.
With specific strength training exercises, you can build on your Emsculpt® results and increase the amount of muscle for a more defined and stronger body.
Such exercises can also help improve flexibility, improve posture, and lower the risk of injury.
Planks and Crunches
Targeted core exercises like plank help improve the strength and definition of the abdominal muscles. This dynamic exercise improves balance and coordination and builds body strength by targeting the abs, outer thighs, obliques, and shoulders.
Crunches also do a good job helping you tone your abdominal muscles.
Squats work some of the largest muscle groups in the body, including the glutes, hamstrings, and quads. You can either use your body weight or add weights for increased resistance.
Weight Lifting Exercises
Consider adding weight-lifting workouts to your exercise routine.
Deadlifts, for instance, are a great way to work your core, tighten your body contours, and keep your muscles firm. Other exercises such as bench press and the weighted squat can also be incorporated into your exercise routine for more variety.
When using weights, always ensure to lift them safely and consider working with an experienced partner or personal trainer to guide you on the correct form and technique. This will help avoid injury.
While strength training is good for developing muscles and defining your shape, you may also want to incorporate a variety of cardiovascular exercises to get your heart rate up and burn more calories.
After all, you want to get rid of extra layers of fat and boost your cardiorespiratory fitness.

Emsculpt® uses HIFEM® technology to stimulate rapid muscle contractions (similar but much stronger than those created during high-intensity exercise), thereby burning calories and working the muscles.
