IS ELECTROSTIMULATION TRAINING EFFECTIVE?
We could start this article by simply telling you that advanced integral electrostimulation training is the best full-body training there is, however, we want to give you some of the reasons for you to evaluate yourself and have your own criteria about this type of training.
If you are wondering if EMS training really works, here is something that may be of interest to you.
Electrostimulation is an effective method. There are numerous scientific studies carried out by many health professionals that highlight the benefits and efficacy of this method, especially those related to your health.
I leave you in this link an access to some of these studies, where you can check their veracity.
HOW LONG DO I NEED TO DO AN EMS TRAINING?
As we have already mentioned, training with advanced integral electrostimulation facilitates the development of the muscular mass of our entire body, and requires less time than conventional fitness training to achieve the same results.
We only need 20 minutes, twice a week, to obtain incredible results, equivalent to 2 to 3 hours of heavy, long-lasting workouts that involve a great deal of sacrifice.
Are you still thinking about the effectiveness of EMS training?
The stipulated duration of the training as detailed above is 20 minutes, but we can adapt the duration by increasing or decreasing it depending on the physical condition of our trainee. The variation in the duration must be done respecting the fundamental principles of training.
The same applies to the frequency of training. Taking the normality reference of twice a week, we can increase or decrease the frequency depending on the physical condition of the subject, and above all on his recovery capacity between training sessions. Let us not forget that with this tool we achieve a powerful contraction of a very high number of muscles.
PRECONDITIONS FOR ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS WITH EMS TRAINING
Muscle electrostimulation allows you to combine time saving with great results.
However, if you want to achieve your goals using electrostimulation, you must use equipment of proven and professional technological quality.
Since many muscle stimulators are sold on the EMS training market along with their electrostimulation suits, you must have enough technical information to choose wisely the one that best suits your needs.
In addition to verifying the quality of its components and quality controls in its manufacturing process as we have seen in previous lessons, we recommend taking care of other aspects such as:
- Supervision by a sports expert. If a professional with the right knowledge leads the training, the effects and benefits of the training will not be long in coming. The chances of reaching success will multiply.
- In addition to the electrostimulation tool or device and the sports professional, it is very important that you have a session programmed with the appropriate exercises for the objective you have set for yourself.
Thanks to a proper training routine, you will be able to strengthen your muscles, tone your body, improve your resistance, oxygenate and prevent muscle fatigue (you will be able to achieve the goals you set).
As for the results, some scientific experiments have shown that a clear improvement in muscle tone and fitness can be observed after 3 or 4 weeks of training through electrical muscle stimulation.
EMS TRAINING DOESN’T DO EVERYTHING
Do not believe the one who promises you the moon: This is not a magic pill that works by watching Netflix and eating popcorn. It does not work like that!
Nevertheless, we can tell you that with effort and dedication you will achieve the goals that you set for yourself, because it is a tool with great potential.
You should lead a lifestyle based on “a healthy mind in a healthy body”: eating a balanced diet and doing regular physical activity. Otherwise, even the best EMS stimulator in the world will not help you get what you are looking for (toning, weight loss, increased muscle mass, glutes, etc.).
If you were expecting a miraculous method, I am sorry to disappoint you.
Getting the body you want requires your commitment in your workouts with EMS training and leading a healthy lifestyle in general.
We are a set of actions in different areas of our lives: training, nutrition and rest. If you want fast and lasting effects, take care of all of them.
