More and more people Emsculpt their calves to attain contoured, heart-shaped calf muscles. Emsculpt, the revolutionary body sculpting treatment, stimulates 20,000 powerful contractions in the calf muscles in as little as 30 minutes. This builds up your calves far faster and more effectively than manual calf exercises.
Bodybuilders and athletic trainers agree that the calves are the most difficult muscle group to develop at the gym. There are a few reasons why.
As with other parts of body composition, a lot of muscle development is genetic. Genetics determine the physiology of the muscle, which determines the size and growth potential of the muscle. If a person is born with calf muscles primarily comprised of slow-twitch muscle fibers (which possess half of the growth potential of fast-twitch fibers), your calves may appear small and prove challenging to develop, even with strength training.
Biology is the second reason your lower legs are so hard to develop, regardless of the calf exercises you perform. The soleus (a major muscle in the calf) has nearly half the potential of the quad muscle to synthesize the protein that creates muscle tissue.
Furthermore, the calf muscles see a lot of activity. Those muscles are more developed than other muscles on our body. Therefore, it takes a lot of tension to produce enough stress on the calf muscle to trigger muscle creation and development. Because of the legs’ anatomy, this tension is hard to manually produce at the gym.
How Emsculpt Works
Emsculpt employs High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy (HIFEM). This energy passes through the skin and penetrates the underlying muscle tissue to induce muscular contractions.
A single Emsculpt treatment induces 20,000 supramaximal contractions in the targeted muscle group. These powerful contractions place tension on the muscle. In response, the body strengthens and tones the muscle tissue.
The Small Applicator
Emsculpt hit the market in 2018. At that time, the FDA cleared Emsculpt for the strengthening and toning of the abdomen and buttocks. In response to growing demand, BTL (the makers of Emsculpt) created the “Small Contour Applicator to deliver targeted treatment for smaller muscle groups, including the arms and calves.”
The small contour applicator features an ergonomic half-pipe design and a higher energy field than the standard applicator. This permits the HIFEM energy to target the calves’ smaller muscle groups without activating nearby antagonist muscles. The combination of technologies improves the applicator’s efficiency.
