EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) training is an active, full-body strength workout that uses a wireless device to stimulate muscle fibres while you perform simple, low-weight lifting movements, making muscle tissue work harder and more effectively while applying little to no pressure on your joints and skeletal system.
In standard load-based strength training, our brain sends impulses that stimulate the muscles to contract – but humans don’t have great connections between the brain and muscle fibres… we get conditioned to activating only a small percentage of the bodies muscle fibres regularly.
Unlike regular workouts, EMS Training stimulates 100% of your bodies major muscle fibres. This also helps build the nerve connections between the brain and the muscles – this way even the weak connections get activated.
Furthermore, EMS Training activates the muscle fibers in irregular order resulting in a more intense muscle contraction, which creates more muscle fibre – FASTER, while eliminating the joint and skeletal stress that traditional lifting imposes.
Is it easy? No… it requires a hard focus and committed effort.
Is it easier on the body? ABSOLUTELY; making it an incredibly effective strength training option for individuals wishing to eliminate stress on their knees, shoulders, back and other load bearing joints.
