Can an EMS Machine really help improve muscle mass? Here’s what the top experts in the field have to say..
What is EMS?
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is a procedure that causes a muscle contraction by directly stimulating your motor neurons. This can cause different type of contractions depending on user input and what you are hoping to achieve. Interestingly enough, your body doesn’t know the difference between a voluntary stimulation and an electric stimulation. This means you are contracting the same muscle fibres without putting stress on your tendons and joints.
What can an EMS Machine do?
EMS Machines can do a lot for your muscles. Here are some of the main highlights exctracted from recent studies:
“The use of the high-frequency current therapy may be beneficial for reducing the levels of abdominal obesity" The subjects did these EMS sessions three times per week for six weeks for 30 mins. After those six weeks, the researchers found that without modifying their exercise or diet, the EMS did indeed cause significant effects on decreasing waist circumference, abdominal obesity, subcutaneous fat mass, and body fat percentage.
