WHAT IS EMS?
Normally, our muscles are made to move by signals transmitted by the brain through our nervous system.
EMS, short for Electrical Muscle Stimulation, uses electrical impulses to create an involuntary muscle contraction and get your workout going.
Normal physical activity uses approximately 30% of a muscles fibres leaving 70% dormant. EMS can effectively target and stimulate these dormant fibres.
EMS TRAINING FOR EFFICIENT BODY TONING
Muscles are made of extremely fine fibres which can be classified as slow-twitch and fast-twitch muscle fibres.
Fast-twitch muscle is relatively easy to build with consistent training, and it characteristically leads to a toned body. However, to activate these muscles one would need to train at a load heavy enough to become out of breath, and therefore requires hard training.
EMS allows an approach which targets fast-twitch muscle even under a slight load, and therefore it can more easily lead to a change in appearance.
HOW IT WORKS
20Hz – A frequency that can train muscles effectively. Proven by global authorities in sports medicine.
Professor Toshio Moritani is a driving authority in the field of sports science and has been researching and studying the training effects of EMS for over 40 years.
The various EMS devices available in the market are set at a variety of frequencies, but Moritani’s studies focused on muscle development and discovered that effective training of the muscles is best achieved at a frequency of 20Hz.
