Trying EMS training for the first time

If you’re looking to save time when working out or make your workouts more efficient, you may be interested to try EMS training. With EMS training you only need one weekly 25-minute session to start seeing the benefits, and each workout is the equivalent of 4 hours of conventional exercise. Before you get started, here’s what you need to know, and what to expect from your first workout.

What is EMS training?

Electro Muscle Stimulation, or EMS, is an innovative form of exercise that uses a low-frequency current to elicit muscle contraction just like our body’s do during conventional exercise. The current runs through your muscles, and the contractions reach deep into muscle fibres, giving a comprehensive workout. In just 25 minutes, you can get a full body workout, maximising results. What’s more, as EMS training doesn’t involve load, there is less stress on the body and joints. For that reason, EMS has gained popularity amongst celebrities, with Heidi Klum, Elizabeth Hurley, and Madonna just a few examples who have switched to EMS training. 

How EMS training works

By targeting 8 major muscle groups at the same time, EMS training is highly effective. Just a single session is the equivalent of a week’s worth of conventional exercise. Although it might not feel as difficult as a conventional workout, it is more efficient and can lead to the same, if not greater results.

With strategically placed pads in the training suit on areas including your waist, hips, arms, and thighs, you will start to notice an increase in overall strength, endurance, as well as better definition and tone. The biggest difference between EMS and conventional training is the amount of time you have to spend exercising to see results, and the intensity at which you work at. You will get all the benefits of post-workout  endorphins that can reduce pain and boost your mood, in just 25 minutes each week.

First time trying EMS training 

With words like electro and impulse being used, it’s only natural that you’d be a little uncertain to begin with. Rest assured, there is nothing to be worried about, because EMS is completely safe, regulated, and easy to do.

When you first walk into Iron BodyFit, your trainer will provide you with all the necessary knowledge about the training session, including what you’ll do, how long will it last, and what you can expect to feel when the workout starts. Once you’re strapped into the training suit, you will be connected to a device that will allow your trainer to adjust the intensity of your workout according to how you feel. Although EMS training is painless, the wearable device will give you a tingling sensation. This is perfectly normal and is an indication that your muscles are being activated and stimulated.

Unlike other types of exercise, EMS workouts only last 25 minutes, so you’ll be done before you even feel started. It’s important to know that even if you don’t feel like you’ve really worked, that you actually have. EMS training is perhaps one of the best forms of exercising for those who are looking to achieve amazing results without spending countless hours working out.
