There are many reasons why we go to the gym. Some of us are training for that next marathon, while others go simply to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Exercise is important no matter what form it takes. But many of us not only want to feel great, but we want to look great, too. We want to sculpt those “mirror” muscles: biceps, chest, and abs, sometimes even at the expense of other parts of the body. But what happens when exercise isn’t enough?
For many men and women, getting six-pack abs is a dream that never happens, even if we eat the right things and exercise regularly.
Today we’re going to look at why that is, and what steps you can take to make your dreams a reality.
Your Six-Pack is There, But it’s Hiding
Many people think that training their core, i.e. their stomach, is the best way to get a six-pack. They do crunches, sit-ups, and squats to harden that little box known as the rectus abdominus. While these exercises are certainly helpful, they don’t address the real problem, which is that the visibility of ab muscles has more to do with the body fat around your abdominal area.
Subcutaneous fat, sometimes called “fluffy fat,” sits around the waist and stomach, and as we get older these fat deposits expand and disguise the fruits of our exercise. You may be strengthening your ab muscles, but they’re hidden behind abdominal fat. That’s why many people who try to get a six-pack end up with a four or three pack instead. They may see results on the upper torso, but the lower abdomen still looks formless.
More so than exercise, your diet plays a big role in dealing with this fluffy fat around the waist. Sometimes, however, not even dieting and exercise are enough. If this is the case, it’s time to turn to CoolSculpting to uncover your hidden six-pack.
Sculpting Your Abs with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a liposuction alternative for eliminating fat cells. Unlike liposuction, it’s non-invasive, and doesn’t leave you with hanging or sagging skin. CoolSculpting utilizes the science of Cryolipolysis to target and freeze away fat cells.
The treatment reduces excess fat around the thighs, flanks, and abdomen by supercooling the problem areas. Subcutaneous fat cells are reprogrammed to die over time and the debris is carried away as waste by the body.
Each treatment, or cycle, permanently removes up to 20% of fat cells from the treated area, revealing your hard work at the gym.
Is CoolSculpting the Right Treatment for Me?
CoolSculpting won’t magically give you a six-pack, and it doesn’t mean that you can stop going to the gym. CoolSculpting helps you realize your dream of having a six-pack.
By removing excess fat around your waist, you’ve given yourself a better opportunity to succeed at your goal of looking the way you want to. The results of CoolSculpting aren’t immediate, either. Your body can take up to two to three months to completely remove all those fat cells. Just like going to the gym every week, CoolSculpting is a process, and a means toward looking your best. If you’ve been working out and eating healthy and still don’t see the results you’re looking for, CoolSculpting is an excellent way to find the perfect body hiding right underneath your skin.
