During the cooler winter months, you’re able to hide a growing belly behind clothing, but summer will soon make its inevitable return. If you want to greet the warmer months with abs you’ll be proud to show off, it’s essential to start the process now. To get started, we have the perfect technology for paving the way toward a flat and muscled abdomen — CoolTone®.
At Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, located in San Antonio, Boerne, and New Braunfels, Texas, Dr. Manuel Lopez and our team understand the relationship between looking great and feeling even better, which is why we’re equipped with the most advanced technologies available, including our innovative CoolTone system.
Here, we explore how CoolTone can get you on the road to great abs, plus other steps you can take toward a tight and flat tummy.
A leg-up on flat abs with CoolTone
If you ask a bodybuilder how they achieved their six-pack abs, you’ll be met with an exhausting regimen that includes crunches, planks, protein, and more. While this road is certainly effective, you’re not a professional bodybuilder, and you lack the time for this type of commitment. Luckily, technology is meeting you where you are in the form of CoolTone.
This system relies on magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), which causes involuntary contractions in your target muscle groups. With CoolTone’s AMP™ technology (Active Magnetic Pulse™), we can target your abdominal muscles from the outside by using specially designed patterns that warm-up, tone, firm, and strengthen your muscles.
While exercising your abdominal muscles is certainly effective, with the AMP approach, we’re able to access muscle fibers that are hard to target through exercise alone.
Making this technology even more appealing is the fact that all you have to do is sit back and let the AMP technology go to work. To get started, we suggest that you begin with a series of four CoolTone treatments.
Boosting the success of CoolTone
CoolTone is a fantastic tool for laying the foundation for great abs, but there are a few steps you can take to boost your results.
For example, there are certain foods and drinks that tend to go straight to your belly, such as:
- Sugary beverages
- Trans fats found in baked goods, fried foods, and microwave pizza
We urge you to steer clear of these foods and turn toward healthier alternatives, such as fruits and vegetables.
Protein is also important when you’re trying to beef up muscles, so we suggest that you ditch that frozen pizza and opt for baked chicken, beans, or eggs, instead, which are full of lean, muscle-building proteins.
While one of the main draws for CoolTone is that you don’t have to exhaust yourself doing ab exercises, we suggest that you keep these muscles as fit as you can on your own. Carve out some time each day (or every other day) for 20 sit-ups or three 30-second planks. In other words, taking just 5-10 minutes out of your busy day to perform ab exercises is a great way to build on your excellent CoolTone results.
