How to Get Abs Fast

We all know that diet and exercise are key components of getting your body sculpted the way you want. So, what do you do? Hit the gym, try different diets that you see online, and wonder why you’re not reaching your goals fast enough.

Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how much dedication you put into your health. Your body might need an extra boost to help get past a plateau, which is normal.

Combining the power of technology with science-backed tips known to transform your body and mind is the solution, and we’re not going to gatekeep. You can safely get that six-pack, and a lot faster than you think. Here’s how.

Getting Abs at Home

Focusing on exercises that work the core muscles certainly helps strengthen the area. This is true with developing any muscle – you need to strength train to increase calorie burn, maintain lean mass, and keep your metabolism in check. Develop your overall strength to see better results in the end.

However, while compound lifts and weighted ab workouts make a difference in weight loss, six-pack abs start in the kitchen.

There are six sure-fire ways to reveal your abs, including:

  1. Tracking macros
  2. Prepping meals
  3. Regulating cortisol levels
  4. Getting enough sleep
  5. Creating realistic goals
  6. Using body contour treatments

Understand & Track Your Macros

This might sound as if we’re your regular fitness bro, but we’re not. Your macronutrient intake helps dictate the type of weight you lose. Macros are the protein, fat, and carbs you consume.

So, if you balance your intake properly and understand your eating habits, it’s easier to determine what calories to cut from your diet.

Many apps are available to help with tracking your macros and knowing what is in everything you eat or drink. With time, you’ll find it easier to learn what your body needs and how to eat accordingly.

Pro tip: Alcohol and added sugar contain almost no nutritional value, increase belly fat, and bring down your mood. Consider cutting back or taking them out of your regular diet to start seeing results naturally as your body and metabolism thank you.

Prepare Healthy Meals in Advance

If you’re tracking your macros, meal prep becomes even easier. You already have ideas for healthy meals and know what’s good for your body. Now, it’s a matter of implementing those ideas and making it easy.

You don’t need to prepare every meal (unless you want to), but doing so for at least some of your meals ensures that you have control over what you consume. Plus, you don’t need to stress about what you’ll eat later because it’s already there for you.

Regulate Your Cortisol Levels

Regarding food-related stress, your cortisol levels are responsible for a fight-or-flight response. When you feel stressed, your body releases cortisol, a hormone that increases appetite and promotes muscle breakdown for energy.

But, if you’re not in a high-stress situation requiring extra energy, your body will store it as fat. Many times, this fat accumulates around the midsection.

Try mindfulness techniques, a healthy diet, proper sleep, and relaxing hobbies to help lower your stress levels.

Prioritize Your Sleep

More than a third of the U.S. adult population is getting insufficient sleep, which is by choice. Sure, you can try to function in your daily life on as little sleep as possible. But, as much as you love your late nights or early mornings, your mood and appetite start to go downhill if you don’t get enough quality sleep.

Plus, lack of sleep increases unhealthy abdominal fat. When your body is tired, your cravings increase, and it’s easier to give in to poor choices because your willpower is low-to-nonexistent.

Build Healthy Habits

It’s more than just finding motivation or enjoying the fitness journey. The habits you create can change your mindset, helping you stick to your plan long-term.

Motivation is not something that exists permanently, right? That’s because the real trick is discipline. When your willpower isn’t there, a routine in place will come to the rescue. And that starts with your goals.

Make SMART goals that help you build better discipline. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.

Take your efforts one step further by chiseling a six-pack with the help of Emsculpt NEO. It brings results that are simply not achievable on your own. If you’re already focusing on fitness and diet at home and have a system to stay accountable, you’ll maximize your results with Emsculpt.

Using Healthy Habits & Emsculpt to Get a Six-Pack

While following some of the best-recommended advice for abs at home will make a world of difference, it might not get you exactly where you want to be.

Emsculpt, and the latest version, Emsculpt NEO, use supramaximal contractions to reach body contour goals, burning fat and building muscle at the same time. You can choose where Emsculpt technology works; many choose the abdominal region.

One 30-minute treatment session on the stomach is the equivalent of physically doing 20,000 crunches. No matter your discipline, this is only possible with Emsculpt.

And no, Emsculpt is not only for women. There are many things men can do at a med spa, including sculpting the coveted six-pack.

Is Emsculpt a Scam?

Emsculpt is not a scam, although some try replicating it with knockoff machines. To get the best and safest possible body contouring results, search for a provider that uses a true Emsculpt device. Quality, well-maintained equipment and treatments administered by skilled professionals are what you should look for to avoid scams.

Don’t fall for knockoff body contouring treatments, as they can be costly and are not regulated for safety.

Of course, having a healthy sense of skepticism is a good thing with any treatment. You should feel comfortable and confident in your decision, knowing that you’ve found a provider and a solution that is right for you.

Do your due diligence, ask questions, voice your concerns, and move forward with the treatment and team that will benefit you.

How Often Do You Need to Do Emsculpt to Maintain Results?

While everyone’s plan will be slightly different as they are customized, we typically recommend around four Emsculpt sessions for your initial treatment package.

Once your treatment package is complete, you can call it good and enjoy lasting results for six months or more. Or, you can schedule maintenance appointments every three to six months to see muscle definition results even longer. No matter what, if you’ve already got healthy habits in place, you’ll extend your results for the foreseeable future. That’s why it’s important to find discipline, eat well, and stay active regularly.

*Results may vary depending on your body, goals, and provider skill. Remember that these types of cosmetic treatments are skill-dependent. It’s important to find a provider you can rely on, with quality equipment regularly maintained for safety and effectiveness.
