A research study1 investigating the link between visceral fat, insulin resistance and vascular disease shows that fat impairs the dilation of arteries and promotes local fat-storage. This means excess fat storage is more likely to occur in the parts of the body where fat is already located, whilst fat loss in these areas will be more difficult as a result.
This study suggests that exercise-induced increases in blood flow to problem areas may alleviate the vasoconstriction caused by excess fat and improve the body’s natural ability to burn fat locally.
The process of stored fatty acids being released into the bloodstream to then be used by muscles for energy is known as lipolysis.
Science has clearly shown that during exercise, your muscles can use dietary carbohydrate or fat. Low-intensity but steady cardio can maximize fat burning, while more intense exercise shifts to burning glycogen and glucose instead of fat2,3.

We designed Pressure Pause Therapy to support the natural movement of the digestive system and increase circulation. This can also boost lymphatic and venous flow, improving your general health and wellbeing.
Because TechnoShape helps you strengthen your core (without undue pressure on your joints and back), you could experience a rise in your balance and stability. Daily tasks, including bending or stooping, can become easier, especially if you’ve lost some unwieldy pounds around your waist.
A stronger core can also improve posture. Good posture helps you breathe deeply and stand tall, which makes you look more confident (and look slimmer). When you engage your postural muscles, you also burn fat, even when you’re simply sitting or standing.
