Are Sit-Ups Enough to Give You Abs?

November 5, 2019

Enough-to-Give-You-AbsWhile everyone has abs, the layer of fat around the abdomen can prevent them from being visible. This is why it is important to tone those muscles, but not just with crunches and sit-ups. Ab-focused exercises like these can help, but it is more advisable to engage in full-body exercises or add in some high-intensity training.

A whole-body approach

Losing fat from your entire body is a much better way to get a toned or a flat belly than doing hundreds of crunches. This is because you cannot see the abs in your abdomen if there is a layer of fat covering the area. 

If you desire a six-pack or a more sculpted abdomen, it is best to check your diet and try new exercises. Once you’ve lost excess weight, you can then begin developing and strengthening your muscles. Compound exercises like squats, deadlift, overhead presses, and plank can help.

Exercises do help in engaging your core and building muscles, If you, however, have a hard time toning your body or feel like your efforts are not doing much, you can consider getting a boost from an aesthetic procedure. You can continue with your efforts, but don’t hesitate to try a non-invasive body shaping system. 

What to consider

Here at Cutis Laser Clinics, we have ZField Dual, a non-invasive body shaping system that can help you get closer to your ideal physique. This uses high frequency electromagnetic energy that stimulates involuntary muscle contraction in the abdominal wall or gluteal region.

ZField Dual has two applicators with the same application settings. Both can be used at the same time to stimulate opposing sections of the muscles (like the buttocks). The use of one applicator (for the abdominal muscles) is also possible. 

Continue reading to learn how ZField Dual can help tone your muscles and give you six-pack abs without sweat and exercise.

How does it work? The system induces targeted muscle contractions, which is not possible through voluntary means. The generation of strong inductive field enforces a muscle’s highest possible contraction (about 27,000). This is also equivalent to thousands of squats or sit-ups.

When exposed supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissues are forced to adapt to extreme conditions, strengthening the muscle fibers. This then results in improved muscle conditioning, which firms the muscle in the abdomen or other areas of concerns. This leads to a more toned and sculpted appearance.

Why say yes to Z Field dual? The targeted muscle contractions from the treatment can help turn certain flabby areas into toned muscles, especially the abdomen and buttocks. It can also treat the arms, lower back, and calves. Other reasons you should say yes to ZField Dual include:

  • Get a six-pack without sweat and exercise
  • Build muscles and burn fat without going to the gym
  • Lift your buttocks non-invasively
  • Have a 30-minute treatment in the abdomen that is equal to 20,000 sit-ups or more

Is the procedure painful? Is there any downtime? A session of ZField Dual is performed with the patient lying down and typically lasts between 20 and 40 minutes. The procedure is virtually painless, comfortable, and has no downtime. This only means that you can return to your normal activities immediately after the session.

Who is the right candidate? ZField Dual is ideal for those who desire to tone and sculpt their bodies. It works best on abdomens with less than 2 inches of pinch. It can help both women and men build muscle and burn fat to have a more sculpted abdomen and firmer and lifted buttocks.

What results can you expect? In general, eight, 30-minute treatments, over a four-week period, produce a significant reduction in the fat layer and increase in the abdominal wall muscle layer. The end result is a more sculpted abdomen and a fuller, firmer and lifted buttocks.

Getting the body you want

It is entirely up to you on how you want to tone your muscles or get the abs you want. If you go with working out most days of the week, but feel like it isn’t doing anything, don’t hesitate to consider ZField Dual. This is also helpful if you don’t have the time and energy to do full body workouts.
