ABOUT EMS TRAINING

WHAT IS ELECTRIC MUSCLE STIMULATION (EMS)?

EMS is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.

 

Does it sound too scientific? It’s actually quite simple.

 

The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes to the skin surface above the muscles. The stimulation causes the muscles to contract in the same way they would in a normal movement. The difference is that with EMS training, more muscle fibres are recruited than with conventional training.

 

EMS training can be used for conditioning and strengthening of muscles. It is truly the training of the 21st century.

HOW DOES EMS TRAINING WORK?

During traditional strength training the brain sends impulses which stimulate certain muscles to contract. However, not all muscles have a well-developed connection to the brain and these muscles are not activated as easily and therefore they will not develop so well.

 

EMS Training stimulates all the major muscle groups and also helps to develop the motoric nerve connections relating to muscle movement. By sending electric impulses directly to these motoric nerves, even the weakly connected muscles are activated.

 

Because muscle fibers are activated in a non-regular order with EMS Training, a more intense level of training is enabled from the start, which creates more muscle fiber at an accelerated rate. More active muscle tissue requires more energy intake which therefore burns more calories, even at rest!

BENEFITS OF EMS TRAINING

BUILD MUSCLES

EMS is the fastest way to build strength and grow muscles because of the massive muscle activation and huge hormonal response

ACHIEVE A TONED BODY

EMS strength training combined with EMS cardio, can help you tone up, burn fat and reduce cellulite. EMS will increase circulation through the skin and fascial tissue, which improves skin tone and reduce cellulite.

RELIEVE JOINTS

With EMS, you can achieve massive muscle activation without putting any pressure on the joints. This makes EMS a safe and highly effective way to train. EMS is ideal after joint replacements or anyone with restricted movement or mobility.

BALANCE OUT THE MUSCULAR SYSTEM

EMS is ideal for improving any muscular imbalances in the body by stimulating ALL of the muscles, including those with a weaker neural connection.

SAVE TIME

“Not enough time” is no longer a valid excuse. With EMS you can achieve the results of a 90-minute training in just 20 minutes, and the training can be adjusted specifically to help you reach your goals.

Safety

XBody devices are designed with in-built safety protocols to keep you safe while training.
