Strength, Cardio, Fat Burning and Flexibility
Typically, when you train at the gym (or other similar exercise), you will only use between 40 – 70% of your strength potential. EMS improves how your muscles work together and increases the intensity of your muscle contractions, enabling your body to use up to 90% of it’s potential – achieving more, in a shorter time.
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.
The high rate of electrical signals allows you to increase the load placed on the muscles without overloading the joints. As a result you experience more muscle growth (hypertrophy).
EMS is able to aid in muscle growth due to the micro-muscle breakdown that is caused by EMS muscle stimulation. In fact, evidence suggests EMS training leads to more micro-muscle breakdown than concentric training methods.
Joints serve our movement, but are also the “breaking points” of the body. Too much stress, too little stress as well as excessive loads cause pain or even damage to the joints.
Joints are supported by the so-called supporting muscles. These particularly important muscles are located directly on the joint – usually very deep in the body – making them particularly difficult to work out.
This is where the deep impact of the middle frequency current enables the effective and optimal exercising of the deep-set muscles. Therefore it acts very quickly and convincingly with back pain including problems in the hip, knee, shoulder and other joints.
No matter what type of sport you practise, strength training is always the basis of fitness. EMS offers useful ways to reduce the amount of time required for strength training. With it’s effective technique, training is also performed without stress on the joints – so that the possibility of getting injured falls to almost zero.
