What you need to know about EMS training and Sweat22 EMS gym in Vancouver
A new trend sport conquers the fitness industry: EMS training is getting more and more popular, and EMS studios are springing up like mushrooms. Here’s everything you need to know about this innovative form of exercise!
What is EMS Training?
EMS ( electrical muscle stimulation or electromyostimulation) is a new trend fitness training that originates from physiotherapy.
This high-intense whole-body workout uses low-frequency electrical impulses to stimulate those muscles that are often ignored by conventional training methods. During an EMS training session, which only lasts about 22 minutes, all big muscle groups of muscles are stimulated, with also the underlying muscles. Despite its short duration, EMS is as effective as several hours of traditional strength training.
The workout routine consists of both dynamic and static exercises that can be varied in all kinds of ways. The electrical impulse is transferred to the body via electrodes.
Both the duration and the intensity of the impulses are controlled through an EMS device that allows each group of muscles to be stimulated individually, at different or equal intensity.
A common misconception is that the electrical impulses are harmful to your body. The opposite is true, actually. The low frequency isn’t dangerous for humans, so you don’t have to worry about being harmed by the electrical impulses. Electrical muscle stimulation is a very efficient, intense, and time-saving kind of training.
The advantage of EMS comparing to regular training
One of the most important features of EMS and its superiority over regular workouts and training is that in a very short time (about 22 minutes) equivalent to 3 to 4 hours of energy and calories consumed. It is interesting to know that in just 22 minutes, up to 600 calories will be consumed. Also, about 85% of the total muscles of your body will be involved in training and you will experience high efficiency during this time.
EMS is one of the best ways to lose weight and get fit and has the best results for you with no side effects. Even injured people, the elderly up to the age of 90, can do EMS training
