Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS): Sculpting Your Muscles Effectively

The American Council on Exercise states that EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation), a technology which delivers electronic impulses through electrodes placed on skin, is an effective part of a rehabilitative Physical Therapy program. Various companies have marketed EMS devices in recent years for aesthetic purposes. They claim that the devices contract muscles to create a workout.

Recently, Women Fitness covered an Exclusive Interview with Ms. Monika Radulovic is Miss Universe Australia 2015. She’s a talented Model and a huge fan of EMS Workout.

This is a great way to exercise using an EMS device that uses electrical impulses to constrict your muscles. This machine is absolutely amazing; 20 minutes of using it can do for your body what many hours at the gym could achieve.

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. The device generates the impulses and delivers them through electrodes placed on the skin, close to the muscles that need to be stimulated. The impulses are a mimic of the central nervous system’s action potential, which causes the muscles to contract. The electrodes adhere to the surface. Sports scientists have cited EMS as a complementary method for sport training and published research on the results is available. The FDA regulates EMS devices in the United States.

According to Dr. Y. Kots of Central Institute of Physical Culture (CIPC), EMS activates the muscle fibers directly, bypassing the energy conserving system. There is no limit on the amount of fibers that can be activated. The EMS stimulus can “spill over” to activate the remaining fibers (provided there is sufficient current). This allows athletes to receive a training stimulus not possible by any other method. A maximal EMS contraction may produce muscle tension up to 30% greater than a maximum voluntary contraction. Independent studies have confirmed this finding, which makes intuitive sense given the nature and function of the body’s system for energy conservation.

If you have only 20 minutes to spare, EMS can be a great idea. If you only have 20 minutes, EMS is a good idea.

EMS is used in four different ways for sport training.

Enhancement of maximum Strength
As a way of recovery
Rehabilitation tool
The tool is a motor learning and muscle recruitment device.
EMS is best done at the end of the day after other activities have been completed. It is best to do this at night, before going to bed. This is because it is easy to do at home. The supra-maximal stimulation it provides also helps promote the release of Growth Hormone while you sleep.
