13 Feb Surprising Details About a Toned Booty (and How to Get It)
Women have been chasing the perky, rounded backside for years, but it can be a pain to achieve. That’s why Parson Skin Center offers Emsculpt, a revolutionary, non-invasive procedure that helps you achieve 20,000 perfect squats (and all the benefits that come with it) in just 30 minutes. Muscles get bigger through a process called hypertrophy, and that’s what we’re actually referring to when we say “toned.” The process is pretty simple: When muscles perform a supramaximal contraction, they undergo tiny micro-tears. As these tears heal, a good kind of scar tissue forms that makes the muscles bigger.
However, your booty and abs don’t care how those supramaximal contractions happen. It used to be that we could only achieve those contractions through concentrated efforts in the gym (or hard labor). Emsculpt is a new technology that makes muscles perform those contractions while you sit back, relax, and scroll through your social media feed. Some people even choose to take a nap. Whether you achieve those muscular contractions through a weight session or Emsculpt is all the same to your body—and your muscles.
The Benefits of Stronger Glutes and Abs with Emsculpt
You already know “toned” glutes and abs are attractive. That’s probably why you want them. You also probably know that getting that look the old-fashioned way can be very time-consuming and even dangerous. Building muscles in the gym requires precise movements. One wrong turn, going up in weights too quickly, or forgetting to wear a lifting belt for your deadlift can damage muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. There’s no risk of injury with Emsculpt.
There are also some surprising benefits as to why humans are so focused on the booty and abs. University of Oxford researchers found that women who had bigger backsides than average were actually more intelligent. This might not align with our society’s stereotype of Instagram models showing off their booty, but you can’t judge a book by its Insta-feed.
Another added “perk” is that women with larger derrieres are also less inclined to chronic illnesses. This odd fact stems from the discovery that bigger backsides in women mean lower levels of cholesterol, which results in a greater chance of producing hormones that metabolize sugar. There’s a lot more to a Kardashian-inspired rear than meets the eye. For women, it also means fewer heart problems and risk of diabetes.
The Gift that Keeps on Giving
We’re also attracted to bigger bums because it usually requires the person to have an extra amount of Omega-3 fats, and those good fats help with brain development. Oxford researchers also found that children who have birthmothers with wider than average hips (which often relates to a bigger backside) are smarter than their peers who have birthmothers with less curves. The scientists evaluated 16,000 women in total (sorry, men) in the study.
As an added bonus, women with larger bums also had higher leptin levels, a hormone in charge of weight regulation. They also carried more dinopectina, which is a hormone rich in anti-inflammatory properties and helps protect the heart. This research backs up similar studies from universities in Pittsburgh and California. All of these benefits also add up to one crucial bonus: women tend to live longer when they have more junk in the trunk.
Emsculpt: A Bigger Booty for Your Health
Unfortunately, there’s no study that shows whether achieving a bigger rear through muscle growth is also as beneficial. However, the Oxford and preceding studies do help us see exactly why we find women with shapelier backsides so attractive. Inherently, we’re aware of these benefits even if we didn’t know them or can’t articulate them. It’s no surprise everyone has been chasing the big booty for years. There’s a lot more to it than just the fact that we think it’s feminine and attractive.
What we do know is that stronger muscles, in the glutes and elsewhere, is essential to our health—especially as we get older. Emsculpt lets you get the look you want and provides the benefits of stronger muscles in just 30 minutes per session.
