EMS or electrical muscle stimulation is the newest and fastest growing trend for a total body workout. It is a high intensity training session that uses low frequency, electrical impulses to stimulate muscles that are often ignored by conventional training. EMS training sessions are short, but are just as effective as going to a traditional gym.
What makes EMS training workout stand out is that almost anyone without existing health issues can partake in this training. These sessions are about 20 minutes. Once you have completed an EMS workout you won’t suffer from any soreness or pain, just a tingling sensation from where the leads were placed.
There are common misconceptions about this workout due to the electronic impulses that enter the body. The fact is that the pulses that go through the body are at very low levels and it has been proven safe for humans.
As with any form of physical activity there are certain groups that are excluded from this form of training. If you are currently a heart patient wearing a pacemaker, pregnant, having problems with physical effort, or a patient with epilepsy; consult your doctor before participating in this type of training.
One of the best aspects of EMS training or its “secret”, is that it targets and stimulates ALL the muscles inside of the body. It has been scientifically proven to be this effective. Through this type of muscle building or stimulation, it burns more calories; which leads to faster weight loss and more muscle. It also helps with cellulite by tightening the skin. If you are a patient with chronic back issues, this workout is also effective in helping and preventing muscle tension, herniated discs, and other common back issues.
How EMS training works is not as hard as you might think. You first strap yourself into the machine that is connected to an EMS device. Next your trainer places leads all over the muscle groups in your body (NOTE: In some instances you will be wearing a vest and shorts that are made from an antibacterial fabric).
Once you are safely connected to the machine your trainer will guide you through a workout that is specifically designed for YOU. All bodies are not created equally. Once you have completed the duration of your workout, which is about 20 minutes; the machine goes into “cool down” mode which is considered massage mode. This helps relaxes the muscles for quicker recovery.
What is so wonderful about EMS training workout is that it has been scientifically proven to be safe to practice, each workout is specifically tailored to you and your body, and it also provides quicker recovery times. If practiced safely and professionally with trainer and machine. This workout by far will be the most innovative ways to quickly and efficiently train and sculpt your body.
