A workout can be tough on those with sore joints, brittle bones, and osteoporosis. For those that still want to keep fit and healthy whilst battling arthritis and sore joints, choosing the right workout can be tricky. A high-impact workout involving running or weights can often be out of the question. For those concerned with keeping their muscles and bones happy, EMS is the answer.
Weight training, in particular, is tough on the joints and bones. With EMS, however, any weight and pressure is applied to the muscles directly, through electronic simulation. This means that stress on joints and bones is minimal, but your workout is just as intense.
EMS is a great workout for those already suffering from bone problems, but it can be preventative as well. Physical activity is known to prevent osteoporosis, and during an EMS workout the deep skeletal muscles are stimulated helping to strengthen the muscles and the bones which hold up the body.
Inactivity can lead not only to diminished fitness and heart problems, but also loss of bone density. Many of us now suffer from backache due to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. EMS training stimulates the muscles in the torso and back, helping to improve posture and also alleviate back pain.
Changing your habits can be difficult, but EMS training makes it that much easier by offering a workout that is effective, in much less time. With results visible in a matter of weeks, you won’t have long to wait before reaping the benefits of your EMS workout.
