Benefits of EMS Training
Compensation of muscular imbalances
EMS allows targeted activation of muscle groups. This is especially important when compensating for muscular differences. For example, sitting for a long time at the desk leads to a shortening of the chest muscles with the simultaneous weakening of the shoulder and back muscles.
Effects of muscle stimulation on strength capacity
EMS can produce a stronger contraction of muscle than voluntary force development. Type 2 fast-twitch muscle fibers and core muscles have also been shown to be enhanced.
Maximum strength and endurance
Untrained individuals can only access about 40 to 70% of their strength potential voluntarily. EMS reduces this strength deficit between maximum and absolute strength because the motor units are better synchronized and activated by EMS. Strength endurance has also been shown to increase noticeably with EMS.
Muscle building (hypertrophy)
The aforementioned maximum strength gain through EMS is essentially due to an increase in muscle mass. Increases in the circumference of the chest, arms, and legs are often noticeable after just a few training sessions.
Better posture, stronger back
Imbalances in the postural muscles of the back, abdomen, and pelvic floor are common ailments. With EMS, these difficult muscle groups can be targeted and effectively trained; especially in the case of the imbalance and the widespread issue of back pain. Training can make a noticeable contribution to alleviating discomfort. At the same time, compensatory bad posture is corrected, which ultimately leads to an improvement in posture and mobility.
Muscle building after operations
Một số nghiên cứu đã chỉ ra rằng EMS có thể tăng tốc phục hồi cơ bắp một cách hiệu quả sau phẫu thuật.
Việc sử dụng EMS trong giai đoạn cấp tính ngay sau khi phẫu thuật đã được chứng minh là đặc biệt hiệu quả.
Performance enhancement in sports
Strength is a performance-limiting factor in many sports. EMS Training is ideal for building sport-specific strength, improving the quality of muscle contractions, balancing imbalances.
Protection of the musculoskeletal system
EMS training is "additional load free". Training intensity with EMS does not result from heavyweights, but from electrical stimulation. Therefore, the exerciser does not need to use any additional exercise equipment, which limits the pressure on the joints, and helps prevent the risk of injury. Especially, people who have injuries can work out with EMS.
Weight and fat reduction
EMS promotes a high level of metabolic activity during, and for many hours after, a training session. The higher your metabolism, the better your body will burn fat and build lean muscle mass.
For women, EMS training has been proven to reduce the size of common problem areas, such as around the waist, hips, and thighs. At the same time, it will firm up the chest and arms.
For men, EMS training reduces waist size, whilst developing the arm, chest, back, and leg muscles.
