What is EMS training?

• 28 August 2020

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training is a type of training that uses a wearable device that attaches to the body, stimulating your muscles through tiny electrodes that accelerate your workout and enhance your body-toning results.

EMS training is a good way to improve your overall fitness, tone your body and strengthen your muscles in less time than regular exercise.

How does EMS training work?

Usually transmitted via a wearable device such as a belt, the EMS device sends tiny electrical pulses to the muscles to target all four muscle groups for an effective workout.

Regular exercise only stimulates your fast twitch muscles, meaning you’re never getting as much from your workouts as you’d like. EMS devices allow you to achieve accelerated results even under a light load, as they work both your slow and fast-twitch muscles.

You can shave time off your normal gym routine with an EMS device, as the technology works your muscles much more efficiently to accelerate the results you want. Because the EMS device supercharges your workouts, you’ll only need to exercise for as little as 20 minutes per day.

What results can I expect to see?

An EMS device encourages your body to enter a high metabolic state, helping you to tone and sculpt your body, even stubborn areas around your waist, hips and thighs. As the device works your muscles, you’ll notice improved muscle strength and endurance too.

You only need to use the device for 20-30 minutes a day, 5 times a week to see visible results.

Is EMS training safe?

When you use an EMS device, the sensation can take a little while to get used to. Although EMS training does not hurt, you will feel a tingling sensation from the wearable device. This is completely normal, the sensation you can feel is a clear indication that the device is activating and stimulating your muscles during your workout.

With all home-use devices, you should check with your doctor before using an EMS device.
