WHAT IS ELECTRIC MUSCLE STIMULATION (EMS)?
EMS is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.
Does it sound too scientific? It’s actually quite simple.
The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes to the skin surface above the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses cause the muscles to contract, so the result is similar to the actual movement and regular contractions of the muscles.
EMS training can be used for conditioning and strengthening of muscles, it is truly the training of the 21st century.
HOW DOES EMS TRAINING WORK?
During traditional strength training the brain sends impulses which stimulate certain muscles to contract. However, not all muscles have a well-developed connection to the brain and these muscles are not activated as easily and therefore they will not develop so well.
EMS Training stimulates all the major muscle groups and also helps to develop the motoric nerve connections relating to muscle movement. By sending electric impulses directly to these motoric nerves, even the weakly connected muscles are activated.
Because muscle fibers are activated in a non-regular order with EMS Training, amore intense level of training is enabled from the start, which creates more muscle fiber at an accelerated rate. More active muscle tissue requires more energy intake which therefore burns more calories, even at rest!
