In this modern, technologically-advanced world of ours, science in a word, rules. It never ceases to amaze me, the advancements we experience that all at once impact our everyday lives. Being a big picture kind of girl, who is not ashamed in the least to fess up to her loves of both fitness and beauty, and who isn’t afraid to embrace her inner science geek; imagine my excitement when my science and blogging worlds collide, resulting in something kind of earth-shattering. Say hello to the ultimate hybrid of beauty meets fitness meets science, and the new name in body sculpting, Bio Medical Research.
For those who aren’t familiar, Bio Medical Research, or BMR for short, is a company founded on science-driven products that work. This post is all about their Lift series, a set of devices designed to tone your amorphic flesh into something that is toned, chiseled, and decidedly svelte.
Lift isn’t a weight-loss device, boys and girls, rather it is a set of devices that operate on the neural level, gently coaxing the nerves that control various muscle groups into contracting, and mimicking the actions set into place by strength training exercises. The three devices currently available are for arms (upper triceps, to be exact), abs, and glutes, and I have tried all three.
So, how does it work? Basically, you strap on a band that comes equipped with gel conductive patches, and then attach it to a device called the activator. Once the gear is fitted into place, you flip it on and control the level of contraction (1-99), relaxing as the device delivers gentle impulses to your nerves, stimulating them to contract. Depending on the routine you choose, you will be wearing the device anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes. Once you are done, pack it away until the next day, for the recommended plan operates on a 5 days a week basis.
So, does it work? Being that I am already a hardcore gym and fitness buff, I am using this to supplement my already grueling workouts. It should come as no surprise that abs were the first unit I tested. Now I work out pretty hard every day, so imagine my surprise at feeling slightly sore the next day, just from using the device. For the sake of the experiment, I made sure not to work out the day of, just to gauge the device’s efficacy. In conclusion, yes it does work. I am actually excited to continue using the device, just to see results over the long term.
The BMR Lift devices are available online at Bliss.
