Maximizing Gains: Integrating WB-EMS into Your Current Workout Routine

In the ever-evolving world of fitness, there’s a new (Body) buzzword making waves – Whole Body Electrical Muscle Stimulation (WB-EMS). This groundbreaking technology is changing the way we think about resistance training. WB-EMS opens up a lot of new ways to approach fitness and building healthy habits. In this article, we’re going to guide you through the process of seamlessly integrating WB-EMS into your current workout routine to maximize your gains and revolutionize your fitness journey.

The Synergy of WB-EMS and Traditional Resistance Training

To harness the full potential of EMS workouts, it’s crucial to understand how it complements and enhances traditional resistance training. WB-EMS triggers muscle contractions through electrical impulses, intensifying the effort you put into each exercise. This means that you can achieve more in less time. You may have heard of fast twitch muscle fibers responsible for strength and power movements, and slow twitch muscle fibers responsible for endurance activities. WB-EMS is unique in that it trains both types of muscle fiber at the same time. This means you will start getting stronger from your very first session, instead of building up to heavier weights over time.

Creating a Harmonious Workout Plan

The first step in integrating WB-EMS into your workout routine is to create a well-structured plan. Assess your fitness goals, whether they are building muscle, fat loss, or overall strength improvement. Our trainers will review your fitness plan to ensure EMS fitness complements your other activities.

For instance, if your goal is to build muscle, you might use WB-EMS on muscle groups that are hard to isolate with traditional resistance training (hey glutes, we’re looking at you!). 

If fat loss is your priority, you can incorporate WB-EMS to get stronger so you can push harder on your cardio. By designing your plan with specific objectives in mind, you can maximize your results.

Balancing Frequency and Intensity

Next, consider how often you’ll incorporate WB-EMS into your routine. The frequency of WB-EMS sessions depends on your goals and recovery capacity. For muscle building, it’s typically recommended to use WB-EMS twice a week in addition to your other activities. However, if you’re already lifting 2-3x per week, then we can use our metabolic conditioning parameters to supercharge a cardio session with electrical muscle stimulation. Many of our clients enjoy boxing while wearing the EMS suit. 

WB-EMS-Specific Exercises

To reap the benefits of WB-EMS, it’s essential to include exercises that are particularly well-suited for this technology. Compound movements, such as squats, lunges, and deadlifts, are excellent choices as they engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously. Additionally, isolation exercises can be enhanced with WB-EMS to target specific muscles.

Tracking Progress and Adjusting Your Plan

Regularly monitor your progress to ensure that your integration of WB-EMS is producing the desired results. At Bodybuzz, we take caliper and circumference measurements to track fat loss and body composition. We know that scale weight may not be telling the entire picture, so having some tangible measurements helps us guide your programming. 

Integrating WB-EMS into your current workout routine can be a game-changer in your fitness journey. By understanding the synergy between traditional resistance training and WB-EMS, creating a well-structured workout plan, and carefully balancing frequency and intensity, you can maximize your gains and take your fitness to a whole new level. So, get ready to electrify your workouts and crush your fitness goals like never before with the power of WB-EMS.
