Electrical muscle stimulation, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.
It is the full body training with electrical stimulation. In this method the muscles are stimulated so that the workout is much more efficient. So it is considered as one of the most effective passive exercise than normal weight lifting. EMS causes Strengthening of muscles ,toning and firming resulting in super-effective workout in a short time span of time, thus effectively creating the overall weight loss of the body.
The principle behind weight training or muscle training is when you work out, you burn calories and during this course of workout there is a lot of wear and tear that happens to our muscles, which our body takes 48 hrs to recover and make it strong for the next workout.
EMS follows the same principle of muscle training. Training 8 major muscle group i.e legs, gluteus, lower back, upper back, middle back, chest, abdominal and arms at a same time the amount of calories you burn will be more. Normal workout takes 48 hours to recover but in EMS training your body takes 4 to 5 days to recover. So in those 4 to 5 days your body is still burning calories to recover your muscle.
If EMS is done on regular basis, it helps to reduce excess body fat, gain muscle and thereby increasing body’s metabolism. EMS training stimulates all large muscle groups with high intensity at the same time. This strengthens the core muscles and thereby help in building body mass with proper toning of body , So we get a proper sculpted, In-shape body.
The wide range of benefits from EMS training are weight loss and fat removal, improves blood circulation, enhanced muscle formation and stimulation, improved mobility and body toning. It helps athletes also who desire a strong, athletic build for themselves during sports training.
Along with EMS training ,one should continue Cardio activity like walking, cycling, or aerobic etc. for proper toning of muscles.
