Why EMS Training is Growing in Popularity
1 April, 2020
EMS training is becoming an increasingly popular workout method – and it’s not hard to see why!
For starters, we are nearly all time-poor these days, and EMS training can make your workouts a lot quicker.
On top of the time factor, sometimes your motivation can lag a bit. EMS training makes it easier to exercise when you’re not feeling as enthusiastic as you’d like.
What is it about EMS training that works so well?
EMS or electrical muscle stimulation training involves using an app and a suit with built in electrodes to deliver electrical impulses to your muscles, causing them to work to a far greater capacity than with standard workouts. This means you can achieve the same standards in 20 minutes, as you might in three or four hours of work at the gym.
And it gets even better. Lean body mass (muscle) is the main determinant of metabolism. As you build up your muscles, your body becomes more efficient at calorie-burning, which can lead to a sustained reduction in body fat. And since muscle uses both glucose and fatty acids for fuel, higher levels of muscle can reduce the risk of diabetes.
Using EMS workout methods with an EMS-certified personal trainer also means you don’t need the gym. This is especially important now, when gyms have closed in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.
What’s involved in EMS training sessions?
With EMS training, you wear a specially-designed suit equipped with electrodes, such as the 20PerFit wireless EMS suit. The electrodes stimulate and activate all muscles groups, causing muscles to contract at a rate that is around 150 times higher than during standard training sessions.
You will likely do a combination of different exercises, but it will depend on what program your trainer has designed for you. Sessions last 20 minutes, which is all you need to get the full benefits of the training.
EMS training can really dish up the results in terms of stronger muscles and improved general fitness – and it can do so much more quickly and with far less fatigue and wear and tear on the body.
