What is EMS Training?
EMS (= electrical muscle stimulation or electromyostimulation) is a new trend sport that originally comes from physiotherapy. This high-intense whole-body workout uses low-frequency electrical impulses to stimulate those muscles that are often ignored by conventional training methods. When training with electrical impulses, the orthopedic load is low, the workout is very joint-friendly. At the same time the metabolism is stimulated because all large muscle groups are trained at the same time. EMS effectively addresses the large, fast muscle fibers that are difficult to reach with other types of training. It’s very safe for almost everyone, especially for older people or after pregnancy. It’s the best way to workout since lifting heavy weights are usually not recommended. EMS is not recommended for women who are pregnant, people who have metal in their chest, have pacemakes or suffer with seizures.
