EMS - Electro-muscular stimulation
EMS involves the use of impulse currents (i.e. an electrochemical transmission of a signal along a nerve fibre that produces an excitatory or inhibitory response in a target tissue – in this case muscle tissue.) It is more effective than conventional training as it activates each individual muscle group by up to 95% for each contraction. In addition, the muscle contractions are stronger and more intense than a voluntary muscle contraction alone, hence compared to conventional training a higher number of muscle fibres are activated leading to better muscular conditioning. It provides a total body workout for all muscle groups simultaneously in just 20 minutes - which is the equivalent to 1.5 hours of conventional weight training!
