EMS Benefits



EMS has recently gained the attention of the public after some athletes revealed that they are using this technology to enhance muscle performance and recover more quickly between the sessions. A 2010 study in the journal of Strength and Conditioning, for instance, put 28 exercises on a one-month training plan that either consisted of four weight and EMS exercise sessions per week or four weight-only workouts per week. Results show that muscle strength increased by 40.2 percent among the EMS group and 31.4 percent among the weight-only exercisers. And EMS results lasted the longest, with a 49.1 percent increase in strength after a detraining period, compared to the weight-only exercisers’ 24.5 percent increase.
