Each 20 minute training session with EMS equates to approximately 4 hours of conventional exercise.
Normally, when training in the gym, only 40% to 70% of your potential strength is used. EMS improves the functioning of muscles and increases the intensity of muscle contractions, which enables your body to use up to 90% of its potential to achieve more in a shorter time.
An imbalance in the postural muscles of the back, stomach and pelvic floor can cause different unpleasant symptoms, such as back pain. You may particularly notice this if you lead a more sedentary lifestyle. EMS can specifically target these muscle groups which are difficult to access, and strengthens them.
Wondering how many calories you can burn during the 20 minute EMS training session? You can burn anywhere from 400 to 800 calories in one session alone.
With EMS you can target selected muscle groups and speed up the recovery. You can choose which muscle groups to train to compensate for any disproportions.
EMS encourages 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. EMS training reduces the size of the most common problem areas, such as the waist, hips and thighs, or help to lose weight overall.
EMS acts on soft tissue, such as fat cells and connective tissue. By toning muscles and stimulating the production of collagen and blood flow it can help reduce the appearance of cellulitis, improving circulation and eliminating toxins.
The pulse sent by the electrodes goes straight to the major muscle groups in your body. The extra stimulation that your muscles receive during an EMS training session is what results in an increase of muscle mass. After a few training sessions, an increase in the size of muscles in the chest, arms and legs is normally noticed.
