One of the best way to burn calories is by going to a gym. Joining a gym will ensure that you follow an everyday workout regime and concentrate more on your health. It’s important to note that not only are gym patrons different, gyms themselves are very different. Most gyms have advanced equipment such as EMS which helps to stimulate muscle tissue that may not be affected by regular workout routines.
What is EMS (electronic muscle stimulation)?
EMS is also referred to as Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES), electromyostimulation, or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS). It is used as part of physical therapy to help in healing muscle. When used by an experienced therapist, this kind of stimulation can bring relief from pain after surgery or after sport injury or. It is mostly used by some to improve physical appearance. This use has gained popularity recently making it possible to relax muscle spasms with careful use of stimulation. It is also used to reduce muscle tension that mostly attack the neck and upper back after particularly long days working on a computer or a stressful environment.
As the name state, Electronic Muscle Exerciser uses an electrical current to stimulate your muscle. The electrical pulse stimulates the nerves to generate a natural muscle contraction. This is known as passive exercise. When stimulation is successful, the extra energy simulates that of real nervous system signals and provides extra contractions for the muscle to aid their healing.
Electronic Muscle Exerciser for Weight Loss
When EMS is used correctly, the body does not get the after-pain that is linked with tiring workouts. In this way the electronic muscle stimulation assists the body building enthusiast to easily manage the level of pain after the exercise. If a person have a problem such as sore shoulder muscles, he/she can use the stimulation to help alleviate these ache before the next session of exercising.The same case applies when you use Electrical Muscle Stimulation to lose weight. While the stimulation may assist in alleviating the pain sometimes associated with weight loss exercising, the units itself will not have much to do with actual weight loss. By assisting in relieving the pain after working out, EMS may in fact help people to do more exercise giving them a better chance of losing weight.
When it comes to losing weight, a lot of people are looking for something that is easy to and doesn’t take much effort. Unfortunately, you won’t find that with the EMS because it is not made to help in losing weight. It’s important to NOTE that EMS is considered a “passive exercise”. What does this mean? Well, in order to burn calories (for weight loss) one must expand energy. So slapping on an ab belt will not melt all the fat off your belly without any exercise. The only way to lose weight is by eating healthy, that is, adding more fruits and vegetables In your daily diet and most importantly by having variety of exercises.
