Electrical Muscle Stimulation -Workout of the Future?

Whole-body Electrical Muscle Stimulation (WB-EMS) has become increasingly popular globally as a safe and effective workout method. The technology uses muscle electrical stimulation suits, which stimulate multiple muscle groups simultaneously using electrical impulses. While the  benefits of this can be  realized even when it is used passively, it can also be combined with a physical workout to enhance performance. There are multiple reasons why many are considering WB-EMS the workout of the future.

WB-EMS is More Effective

The reason why WB-EMS has become so popular is that it is highly effective. It works to reduce fat and achieve a toned body. When WB-EMS is combined with a  workout, you build lean muscle, get better tone and definition of the muscles, and reduce fat and cellulite. When the electrodes are placed on the body, directly over the muscles you want to target, the electrical impulses find their target.

Ultimately, the mechanism of action increases your metabolism and helps your body burn more calories. It’s possible to burn up to 700 calories in a 20-minute workout, and you will continue to burn calories for the next 48-72 hours through the thermogenic effect. No other workout can come close to that.

WB-EMS also activates the fat-burning Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) effect. This effect refers to the elevation in metabolism after an exercise session has ended. It is linked to increased oxygen consumption, which helps the body restore and return to its pre-exercise state. This extra burn means that more total calories are burned, resulting in additional weight loss benefits and enhanced performance.

Using WB-EMS regularly increases strength and endurance, builds lean muscle, and enhances blood flow. It can also be used if there are muscular imbalances or underdeveloped muscles in any area of the body. Targeting those muscle groups with precise placement of the electrodes corrects the muscular imbalances. It can improve posture and reduce back pain, especially when the training program contains exercises for the back, lower back, and core. The increased circulation to these areas can release muscular tension and knots, ultimately relieving pain.

And it contributes to an overall healthy appearance. This workout reduces the appearance of cellulite and tones and tightens the skin. Many users report feeling and looking healthier and younger. The workout can also increase bone density, which is vital for older individuals.

WB-EMS Is More Efficient

The most significant barrier to working out regularly for most individuals is a lack of time. WB-EMS is far more effective than other workouts in much less time. The workouts are only 20 minutes long but are equivalent to three hours of most traditional exercise routines. And you only need two workouts per week to achieve the maximum results. In today’s busy world, getting results fast means you have more time to devote to other essential tasks in your life.

WB-EMS is Safer

WB-EMS is also safer than most other workouts. Unlike regular strength training, EMS does not require the use of heavy weights and will not put additional stress and pressure on your joints. It includes low-impact exercises that are easy on the joints. When you use EMS under a certified personal trainer’s supervision, you can be sure that the exercises work to relieve joint pain rather than worsen it.

WB-EMS is More Accessible

EMS workouts can be done by almost anyone. You don’t have to be a fitness guru to gain the benefits this type of workout can provide. In fact, no previous exercise experience is required, and almost anyone can do it, regardless of age or fitness level. Even if you have a previous injury that prohibits other types of workouts, you can frequently use EMS under the care and direction of a certified personal trainer.

WB-EMS Is The Future of Workouts

Getting a full-body workout is challenging in today’s busy world. But WB-EMS can deliver results in a concise amount of time when compared to traditional workouts. And the results are not isolated to a single benefit. Users can increase their coordination, tone their bodies, burn fat, relieve joint and muscle pain, and build new muscle mass.
