Your posture will improve even after the first session as your muscles have been activated by the EMS training and your body releases endorphins. A day or two after training you will notice some stiffness which is completely normal. After about 4 sessions you will see a visible difference in your physique. As with other types of training it should be done regularly to maintain great results.

Numerous studies at the University of Bayreuth (2002 â€“ 2003) and Erlangen-NÃ¼rnberg (2009), at the German Sporthochschule KÃ¶ln (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 but 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.
