There are many benefits of practicing electrofitness for the elderly because when people get older they still need to physical exercise and to stay in shape even though many of them don’t move enough.
In fact, training on a frequent basis helps them to be healthy and to improve their living standards.
In addition, training with electrostimulation could even help to prevent some degenerative illnesses and to keep the body moving to avoid a sedentary lifestyle. Indeed, when they are getting older people often think that it’s more appropriate to spend more time resting and not overly fatiguing the joints and the body. However, it’s vital to keep the body moving because sports help to get a good fatigue and then to prevent insomnia among other things.
We recommend older people to follow a full-body training because it helps them a lot to prevent injuries and lesions, and it builds up the strength and allows them to counter muscle degeneration that affects the elderly.
Just as a reminder of the contraindications for EMS training, be sure that you don’t wear a pacemaker before starting using electrostimulation and it’s preferable to check up with your attending physician before starting any physical exercise.
