Electrical Muscle Stimulation ,   (EMS) workout

 

There is science to back this up.

A study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning looked into whether or not EMS could help elite athletes gain a performance edge. They concluded that “the analysis shows that trained and elite athletes, despite their already high level of fitness, are able to significantly enhance their level of strength to same extent as is possible with untrained subjects.”

At the conclusion of that study, the researchers stated that “EMS offers a promising alternative to traditional strength training for enhancing the strength parameters and motor abilities in athletes.”

The theory behind EMS is simple: when electricity stimulates your muscles for you, you can recruit more muscle throughout your entire body for every rep.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is a protocol that elicits a muscle contraction using electrical impulses that directly stimulate your motor neurons. An EMS unit is a device that delivers this in the comfort of your own home.

This stimulation creates muscle contractions that can be quick and frequent, fast with long pauses, or contractions that are held for several seconds or minutes at a time.

An EMS device allows you to engage in deep, intense, and complete muscular contractions without actually activating (or stressing) your CNS—not to mention your joints and tendons.

Another study from 2015 titled “Effects of high-frequency current therapy on abdominal obesity in young women: a randomized controlled trial” provides a different example of the effectiveness of EMS. Instead of fitness levels, this study looked into whether EMS could help you lose body fat.

In this study, a group of subjects received 30 minutes of high-frequency current therapy via a series of electrodes placed on their stomachs. The subjects did these sessions three times per week for six weeks. After those six weeks, the researchers measured the subject’s waist circumference, body mass index, subcutaneous fat mass (fat under the skin), and total body fat percentage.

Surprisingly, without modifying their exercise or diet, the EMS did indeed cause significant effects on decreasing waist circumference, abdominal obesity, subcutaneous fat mass, and body fat percentage, leading the researchers to conclude: “The use of the high-frequency current therapy may be beneficial for reducing the levels of abdominal obesity in young women.”

EMS isn’t new; it’s been used by physical therapists and rehab specialists for decades. But in recent years, it’s become such a popular workout recovery tool that several kits are now easily available for purchase. It's also a hot trend among several Victoria’s Secret models like Alessandra Ambrosio and Alina Baikova, who routinely join Elzomor for sessions at the Core Club.

EMS is fun, and it’s a valuable tool in helping you uncover muscle imbalances, it's a tool that lets you explore your body, finding deficiencies that you can address in your other training.

 

 

EMS can support your other gym efforts by enhancing your mind-muscle connection. With standard gym practices, then supplement that work with twice-a-week EMS sessions.

You may discover, for example; that the abdominals on your left side are slower to fire than the abs on your right side. When receiving that regular electrical impulse from EMS, they fire more cleanly, leading to a deeper burn on situps.
