EMS stands for Electrical Muscle Stimulation. Technically, EMS is a total body workout using impulse currents. In this context, it might be helpful to know that our muscles naturally contract through electrical impulses (bioelectronics). EMS training makes use of this effect by employing hardly noticeable external electric impulses, which optimise the body’s natural muscle contractions, which achieves a maximum result in minimum time. The electric impulses are delivered via electrodes using an electrode vest combined with a under garment which will be provided by 20 TO SHAPE.
EMS is a full body workout that activates over 90% of the muscle fibres at the same time during each contraction. In contrast to conventional fitness training, EMS immediately activates the fast-twitch fibres in your muscles. Hence, EMS training produces a much stronger and faster result. The training effect with EMS can be up to 15 times more efficient than training in a conventional gym.
