EMS training vs Tele Ems:
EMS training is a full body device and you don’t only train one muscle group and you will train with a personal trainer that will show you exactly what to do to achieve your goals and needs. The device stimulate the agonist and antagonist simultaneously and you can therefore activate 90% of muscles and get the deeper muscle tissues to work as well, which you cannot effectively do with tele – ems or conventional workouts. This type of training with our functional movement training protocol gives you great and effective results in a short period of time.
How much time do I save and how often?
You need 1 x 20min strength training EMS workout once a week to get the same results compared to 3 x strength training sessions of an hour each per week. Because the EMS strength training is very demanding on your body, you need time to recover and regenerate tissues. For the cellulite sessions, you are able to do multiple sessions a week to aggressively target fat and cellulite as the intensity is lower you utilize the machine at.
How safe is it and are there long terms side effects?
EMS training is very safe and a perfectly natural process. Muscles and organs need electrical impulses from the central nervous system to contract and this natural principle is used by EMS technology in a more effective way as it merely utilizes electrodes applied onto the skin directly above the muscles causing it to contract. There are no long term side effects using EMS training, the contra indications are a pacemaker and during pregnancy.
Most people can use EMS training but if you have a health condition which prevents you from participating in conventional sport then you must definitely get the OK from an experienced doctor first.
The contraindications are:
- Heart pacemaker
- Severe circulatory disorder & arterial circulatory disorder
- Abdominal wall- or inguinal hernia
- Tumour diseases
- Arteriosclerosis in advanced stadium
- Diabetes mellitus
- Severe neurological illnesses (epilepsy, multiple sclerosis)
- Fever, acute bacterial or viral infections
- Bleedings (hemorrhages) & heavy bleeding tendency (hemophilia)
If you suffer from any of the above conditions please consult your doctor to obtain medical approval before starting with EMS training.
When will I see results:
Your posture will improve after even the first session as your muscles have been activated by the EMS training and your body will release endorphins. After a day or 2 after training you will notice some stiffness which is completely normal. After about 4 sessions you will see a visible difference with the training and as with other types of training it should be done regularly to maintain your great results.
Research studies from the Bayreuth University in Germany report the following results after a 6-week training program with EMS:
- 88% of people tested reduced their back pain.
- Over 30% of those reported their recurring back problems had disappeared.
- 75% showed improvement with incontinence problems, while 33% of those were cured of incontinence altogether.
- Overall maximum strength ability increased by 12% while endurance/fitness levels improved by 69%.
- On average, 85% of people tested felt an improvement of their body shape and 90% ranked the EMS training method as positive.
- Training with higher intensity produced effective results, especially with subjects who suffered from recurring pain and other ailments. It also resulted in enhanced muscle definition and tone.
The values that were measured underscore the fact that whole body EMS-training is up to 40% more intensive than traditional strength training with weights!
What does the scientists say:
Numerous studies at the University of Bayreuth (2002 – 2003) and Erlangen-Nürnberg (2009), at the German Sporthochschule Köln (2008), as well as the heart clinic in Bad Oeynhausen (2010) have shown the effectiveness of EMS training. Even untrained people see and feel tangible results in very little time by investing only 15 to 20 minutes per week. As a matter of fact, not only general muscle-building is achieved: EMS also works excellently when certain areas are targeted: for example buttocks, stomach or back. Furthermore and most importantly: EMS – unlike conventional training – puts no stress on the joints.
Intake before and after workout:
Make sure you have eaten something before your session to provide adequate energy like you would before other training session. Try and drink at least 500ml of water before a session to ensure you are well hydrated. We recommend Chanson Alkaline Ionized water as it is microclustered that hydrates you much deeper into a cellular level, is a super antioxidant and has a higher pH that gets your body fuelled with great minerals that’s much needed like calcium and magnesium, this is also a perfect recovery drink because of the hydration and antioxidant properties. With that something containing protein and the intake of amino acids is recommended as it will aid the recovery of the muscular tissues.
What sports can benefit from this training:
EMS training can be used for all sports as a very effective and focused regime to increase performance and is used by many professional athletes all over the world including the world’s fastest man – Usain Bolt that has his own EMS training machine. This will give you a massively increased maximum repetition of any exercise, make you push out more watts on the bike, run faster with a better posture. Whatever your sporting needs and goals are this training is superior and achieve results in a shorter time than any other training method available.
