What Is EMS Training?
During normal every day life your muscles are continuously and naturally being stimulated by bioelectric impulses. It’s what causes your muscles to contract, so you can move.
Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a method of amplifying this natural process to encourage your muscles to work harder. Extra electrical impulses are delivered to your body through a specially designed training suit containing electrodes. The extra stimulation creates stronger, more intense muscle contractions than from conventional training, making EMS much more effective in developing strength, stamina and improving body shape.
WHY IS EMS SO EFFECTIVE?
During a full body workout with EMS over 90% of the muscle fibers are contracted at the same time. Unlike with conventional strength training, the deep-lying muscles are also stimulated. This improves coordination within the muscles themselves and also between different muscle groups, making this form of training particularly intensive and fast. EMS is brilliant for general muscle buildings, but also works wonders when targeting specific areas of the body, such as the buttocks, abdomen or back.
How long does it take to see results?
It depends on your current level of activity and training and how much you’ve trained in the past. If you’re not currently following a program, the results will be more noticeable.
In any event, you should start feeling different in three weeks; and you’ll really start seeing a difference in six or seven.
