EMS training has numerous benefits over conventional training methods:
Strengthen core and abdominal muscles:
EMS Training activates your core and abdominal muscles. You can achieve the same strengthening of low-lying muscle fibers that you’d normally associate with Yoga or Pilates exercise, without any of the time-consuming holding moves.
Improvement of your posture:
EMS Training helps improve your posture and spinal health in a short period of time. EMS can specifically target and train difficult to reach muscle groups, causing a noticeable reduction in pain and an improvement in overall posture and flexibility.
Increased overall strength and endurance:
With EMS training you gain rapid strength in a shorter period of time. According to research results 20 minutes of EMS training is as effective as 3 training sessions of 90 minutes of a general weight work-out. Customizable intensity, duration and frequency helps achieve personal training goals quickly, effectively and consistently – whether it’s increasing strength or improving endurance and overall fitness levels.
Reduction in cellulite:
If we have to answer, what is the most effective way to lose weight? , then EMS training is the best way to burn calories. It increases blood circulation and stimulates the tissue deep down holding the fat, which burns the cellulite. By stimulating the muscle tissue, EMS improves blood circulation through the skin.
Correction of muscular imbalances:
A lot of people suffer from a muscular imbalance in their back, stomach, or pelvis floor resulting in recurring back pain. EMS training can target specific problem areas and help strengthen the weaker muscle groups to correct imbalances. Muscle weakness and imbalances are usually caused due to lack of movement in our daily lives (e.g. sitting at a desk for long hours). EMS allows the inactive muscles to be activated resulting in reduced muscular imbalance
20 minutes = 4 hours of conventional strength training:
Due to all your major muscle groups being activated every four seconds, you get a lot more contractions and muscles trained than conventional training. EMS training is not just for athletes. It’s also for people looking for the best workout to lose weight fast and effectively around a busy schedule. Greatly increasing the number of contractions at each 20-minute session is equivalent to four- six hours of conventional exercise.
Easy on your joints, preventing strain and injury:
There is no strain on your joints since you don’t have to use any weights during your work-out. EMS training is not dependent on weights or high impact training, so the risks of strain and injury are greatly reduced which makes EMS ideal for older people or people with joint problems and injuries.
Increased muscle definition:
Typically, when you train at the gym (or other similar exercise), you will only use between 40 - 70% of your strength potential; the extra stimulation given to your muscles during an EMS training session is what leads to an increase in muscle mass. After just a few sessions, you will notice an increase in the size of your chest, arm and leg muscles.
