There many benefits to EMS training at BODYTEC. A lot of people wonder how a 20-minute workout, can yield such great results. Below you will find the benefits of EMS training and how it works and can work in your life too.
Time Saving Workout
A typical workout at the gym is about 1 hour per session. You need about three sessions per week to see results. At BODYTEC, you only need 20 minutes, once a week to achieve the same results as up to 3 hours of lifting weights in the gym.
The reason one EMS session is the equivalent of so much gym time, is because our EMS machines activate close to 90% of your muscles at the same time. It’s like doing squats, pushups, and sit ups simultaneously.
Low Impact on Joints
Now I’m sure you’re thinking that sounds intense. At BODYTEC our EMS suit does most of the work so that your joints and tendons don’t have to.
A major benefit to EMS training is that there is no weightlifting, running, jumping, or skipping. So it’s perfect for anyone with injuries or joint problems who have previously struggled in this area. And our trainers are great at modifying workouts to suit each individuals needs.
Deep Muscle Activation
A traditional workout at the gym activates about 30% of your muscles at a time. BODYTEC’s EMS technology is able to activate close to 90% of all your muscles at the same time. So when we say a whole body workout, we mean it! The reason we only recommend 1 session per week is to allow your muscles ample time to recover and strengthen before you work them again.
Can Help Reduce Back Pain
There are a lot of causes of back pain in our modern world; things such as heavy physical work and sitting for long periods of time at a desk can really take its toll.
A BODYTEC EMS workout helps train weaker muscles, which reduces the load on the spine. As well as bringing some reduced pain relief. One of the most common things our clients say is even after just one session, they have seen an improvement in back pain that they’ve been living with for years.
Getting back into exercise after pregnancy and birth can be daunting for a number of reasons. Things such as weaker pelvic floor muscles and abdominal separation make it hard to train. Not to mention that, as a new mum, even finding the time to think about exercise is overwhelming.
It’s important that you don’t push your body too hard after birth. This is why BODYTEC EMS training is great for postnatal recovery. It doesn’t require much time, we are kid and baby friendly. We can target core muscles as well as modifying some exercises to help activate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Not to mention that EMS is low impact and gentle for those early postpartum days.
Weight Loss and Toning
EMS training helps to activate your muscles in a much deeper way than you could achieve through traditional training. Your muscles require more energy than fat. Which basically means the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the less body fat you will have.
EMS targets eight specific muscle groups – your legs, glutes, lower back, laterals, upper back, chest, abs, and arms. Because you can control the intensity of each of these groups, you can sculpt and tone your problem areas in relation to your goals.
Combined with a healthy diet and low impact cardio such as walking, yoga, cycling, or swimming, you will be able to reach your weight loss and toning goals!
The deep muscle stimulation that EMS training provides results in toned muscles. When muscles are toned, the skin that lays above them is tightened. This results in a smoother appearance. As well as this, a benefit of the compression effects of wearing the EMS garments means that healthy blood circulation is promoted which can enhance cellulite reduction.
EMS training is highly effective in targeting deep postural muscles and strengthening them. In doing so, it can help improve core strength and address and correct any muscle imbalances that could be affecting posture. It is so targeted and controlled that it ensures equal muscle activation on all body parts. So you can’t over-work one side, which is often what happens with traditional weight training.
Exercise has long been known to benefit and improve our health, mood, and general well being. With EMS training, although you only workout for 20 minutes, those same endorphins are released leaving you feeling happier and energized! Many of our clients boast better quality of sleep as well.
