Bounce Back After Giving Birth with 20PerFit
15 November, 2019
Getting back in shape after having a baby can be challenging. Your body has been through many changes, and you can’t just rush headlong into running a marathon straight from the delivery room.
For the first six months or so after giving birth, it’s best to stick to low impact exercises. But if you have some “baby weight” you want to shift, it can be hard to burn off excess body fat with low-impact workouts, and looking after a new baby means you don’t have much spare time – certainly not enough to be spending hours in the gym.
So, what’s the alternative?
There is one way that you can rebuild strength and burn fat, and it only takes 20 minutes – functional electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) training with 20PerFit.
20PerFit’s system uses the very latest EMS technology exported from Europe – where EMS gyms are hugely popular. The system stimulates deep muscle fibres as you train, delivering a full-body workout equivalent to 3 conventional workouts in just 20 minutes. Below are just some of the benefits that new mums can enjoy by training with 20PerFit.
Shift stubborn fat
Functional EMS training helps you build lean muscle, which in turn speeds up your metabolism, helping you to burn fat. Of course, nutrition matters, too – if you want the best results from your training, you should combine your EMS workouts with a healthy diet.
20PerFit’s trainers can provide you with advice and information on healthy eating habits to help you reach your goals faster.
Boost your metabolism
During each session, 20PerFit’s EMS system stimulates up to 90% of your muscle fibres, helping you to build more muscle than you would with conventional strength training. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate – the rate at which your body burns calories – both while you’re training and when you’re at rest.
Because more muscle fibres are activated during an EMS session than during a regular workout, this also boosts your metabolism, triggering an “afterburn” effect – meaning you’ll burn more calories for up to 48 hours after each session.
Increase whole-body strength
A 20-minute full-body functional EMS training session with 20PerFit is equal to 3 conventional training sessions. During your workout, you’ll be wearing a special wireless suit that contains electrodes which deliver electrical impulses to your muscles, stimulating deep muscle fibres. It’s 100% safe, but it’s also extremely effective. Regular training with 20PerFit will increase your muscle mass, improving your overall strength.
Strengthen your pelvic floor
After giving birth, you might find simple things like sneezing or laughing can trigger a slight loss of bladder control. While this is perfectly normal post-partum, it can be frustrating.
Luckily, training with 20PerFit can help with this, too. Studies have shown that whole-body EMS workouts can help to relieve urinary incontinence. Training with 20PerFit’s full-body functional EMS system stimulates hard-to-reach muscles like your pelvic floor and the nerves that supply it. This can help to improve symptoms of post-natal urinary incontinence.
Training with 20PerFit means that you can achieve your goals in an incredibly convenient way. Because a session only takes 20 minutes – and all you need is one to two sessions a week – you won’t have to worry about finding hours of spare time to train. And because 20PerFit’s system is so effective, you’ll achieve your goals much faster than you would if you were slogging it out in a regular gym.
