Everything you need to know about EMS training
EMS training (Electrical Miscle Stimulation) consists of physical exercises during which our muscles are additionally subjected to electrostimulation. Most people who are on EMS training for the first time in Bodybar studio in Mokotów ask what is the purpose of subjecting muscles to electrostimulation?
Well, we often forget that muscles need stimuli to activate. During conventional exercise, muscle activation is triggered via the central nervous system. With EMS training, our muscles are additionally stimulated externally, which naturally increases the effectiveness of muscle activation in our body and increases precision, which is important in customizing training for individual exercisers.
How it works in practice?
In practice, all exercises are performed in a special vest, equipped with electrodes that stimulate externally 9 muscle parts simultaneously.
Before starting an EMS training in Mokotów at Studio Bodybar, a personal trainer always has a detailed conversation with a person exercising about their training goals. Depending on individual needs, certain muscle parts are subjected to stronger or weaker impulses – as expected. The trainer also adjusts the frequency of impulses depending on the advancement of the person exercising. The trainer leading the workout makes sure that the strength of the pulse on each part is appropriate.
The impulses generated during an EMS workout are analogous to the impulses sent out by the central nervous system, so they are completely harmless, safe and very importantly, painless.
The most important advantages of EMS training
