FAQS About EMS training

What is Ems and what does it stand for

EMS stands for “Electro Muscular Stimulation”. From a technical point of view, it is a full body training exercise using impulse current. In everyday life our central nervous system constantly sends electrical impulses to control our muscle action. EMS uses this natural principle and is able to intensify this process to reach deeper muscle layers, which are hard to activate through conventional training. This is achieved by applying EMS electrodes to the skin directly above the muscle. All in all you can call EMS simply a selective intensification of electrical stimuli from the outside. You gain the best results if you work out actively while using our EMS device. Muscles are additionally stimulated through the electrodes while doing a series of low-impact exercises. This combined training leads to an additional increase of tension producing highly effective training results. Your personal trainer can control each muscle group by adjusting the training intensity according to your individual goals. With EMS you achieve visible and tangible success in a very short time.

Why is Bodytec Training More Effective Than Conventional Training ?

Electric stimulation training takes place in high intensity areas. During EMS training with Bodytec., 90% of all muscles between two electrodes are activated simultaneously with EACH contraction cycle. In addition, the muscle contractions are stronger and more intense than a voluntary exertion can do alone. Compared to conventional weight training, also the deeper muscles are being activated which leads to better intra- and inter muscular coordination.Based on these scientifically proven facts, you achieve highly effective results in a short period of time. Considering the contraction time and -intensity for the trained muscles, the effect of up to 20 minutes training with Bodytec is comparable to several hours of conventional weight training, which in turn means quickly visible and tangible results

How Much Time can i Save Through EMS Training With Bodytec.

A general gym workout, including a warm-up, averages 1-1.5 hours per session. To see and feel results, you need to train at least 2-3 times a week, which adds up to six hours or more per week. Many people cannot afford to spend this required amount of time getting fit and keeping in shape.

Is EMS Training Dangerous? Does The Current Harm Your Body.

No. The use of low frequency impulse current is widely used in training and rehabilitation therapy. Muscles are electro chemical organs and need electrical impulses from the central nervous system to contract. EMS technology uses this natural principle but is able to intensify the contraction by applying electrodes directly above the muscle.
Does The EMS Training Hurt

No. Bodytec. machines works with low impulse frequency and our muscles do not differentiate between a natural impulse from the brain or an external impulse via an electrode.

Can Anybody Do EMS Training? Should i avoid EMS Training IF i have Certain Conditions

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 approval from your doctor.

The absolute contraindications are:

  • Heart pacemaker

  • Pregnancy

  • Severe circulatory disorder & arterial circulatory disorder

  • Abdominal wall or inguinal hernia

  • Tuberculosis

  • Tumor 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.

Are Their Any Side Effects When Training With EMS on a Long term Basis?
No. With Bodytec. the EMS training is based on low frequency impulses and does not harm the body. The body needs electrical impulses from our central nervous system, which leads to a muscle contraction and EMS only uses this natural principle in a more intense and effective way. There are no known side effects of EMS training.

Is it Safe and Hygienic to wear the same Training Vests & electrodes that are used on other clients?

We supply a specially manufactured training outfit which must be worn during all training sessions. The electrodes work through the special fabric of the training gear and does not make direct contact with your skin.

The electrodes are covered with a special anti-bacterial fabric for long and hygienic use. The electrodes are cleaned regularly with a special detergent and are replaced after six months usage with new electrodes.

Why IS EMS EFFECTIVE?

During EMS training, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with EACH contraction and the muscle contractions are stronger and more intense than a voluntary exertion can do alone. Compared to conventional weight training, deeper muscle groups are activated which leads to better intra and inter muscular coordination. Based on these scientifically proven facts you achieve highly effective results in a short period of time.

Can YOU Loose Weight With Full Body EMS Training?

Nowadays “losing weight” and “getting slim”, which is weight and fat diminution, is usually tackled with (one-sided) diets. At the attempt to save (excessive) calories one-sided and maladjusted eating habits are frequently switched over to. This often leads to a short-term diminution of the weight though at the expense of the increased reduction of muscular tissue. The combination of wrong nutrition, lack of exercise or exaggerated endurance training leads to “undesirable developments in the body metabolism”. In a deficiency situation the body keeps due to its genetic disposition its body fat tightly in order to still have sufficient reserve powers in emergencies. A so-called Jojo effect often appears after the completion of the diet since a reduction of the basal metabolism of the body has arisen by the muscle tissue reduction and more calories are now taken excessively again. At the attempt of the weight reduction by endurance training the negative effect of the deficiency is left aside, but no muscle mass is built up either. However, the work volume is increased, but not the basal volume. A fall in the muscle mass is often established at frequent endurance training, too. The work musculature is reduced. An effective and continuous diminution of weight and body fat is possible with Bodytec. by the construction of a fat-free muscle mass. Due to the high metabolic activity during and still lasting for hours after the EMS training a high work volume is caused and the basal volume increases long-term through a gain of muscle mass. With a parallel proceeding healthy nutrition weight can be reduced appropriately and sustainable. By a weight and fat diminution it can be noticed that women training with Bodytec. also realise a diminution of the girth primarily in the area of the problem zones: Waist, hip and thigh. A tightening of chest and arms can also be carried out.

Why only A 20- Minute Workout

That’s because a 20-minute workout is made of 38,250 pieces of each contraction muscle group, including the deep stabilising muscles as well! It’s about a normal gym workout. Equals to 150 times more! More than 20 minutes workout is over training and will exhaust your muscles completely.
