EMS Guide - How can it help you?
Your advantages with electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
Simply strengthen your muscles at home, on holiday, wherever you are and whatever you do. Electrical muscle stimulation with an EMS device makes it happen. And quite a few sources suggest that EMS can help build muscle and even help relieve back and incontinence discomfort.
What are your benefits of EMS training:
Targeted and completely painless muscle stimulation
The electrical muscle stimulation specifically addresses red or white muscle fibres, depending on the setting of the parameters, so that you can also target individual muscles that you might neglect during normal training. This strengthens your muscles immensely.
Flexible training times
In addition, an EMS device at home is ideal for you if you can't manage to go to the gym two or three times a week. You'll have more time again and maybe even save on the gym monthly premium.
More flexible than EMS studios in the city
You have the flexible home advantage and can use EMS wherever you are. This saves you time and money. The accessories for your own EMS device are also noticeably cheaper in the long run than a subscription to an EMS studio.
Training even in case of injury
If you can no longer train holistically due to an injury, you still have EMS training for all non-injured parts of your body. Get in touch with your doctor.
Much more intense
When the brain sends stimuli to the muscles, not all muscle fibres contract, but only a few of them at a time. The EMS device develops a deep effect and actually makes all muscle fibres contract. This results in an extremely intense and effective workout. You can also train your deep muscles, which you are not consciously aware of.
Not only do you train with EMS, but you can also easily and effectively treat muscle tension at home. The electrical stimulation current from the electrodes loosens your muscles and promotes blood circulation. Whether in the neck, shoulders, arms and legs, upper back or lumbar region. This way you can also prevent pain.

Areas of application for EMS
EMS can help you with the following application areas:
Rehab and muscle building
Both minor and severe injuries cause muscles to regress. Effectively rebuild muscles and make them stronger than before with EMS, among other methods
If you use EMS often, you will not only do something good for your fitness, but you can also prevent complaints later on. Targeted back training, for example, takes pressure off vertebrae and can prevent discomfort, leg training can noticeably relieve knee joints, and EMS pelvic floor training can be effective in treating and preventing incontinence.
As an athlete, integrate EMS into your existing sports programme and challenge your muscles outside of it. This way you can reach your training goals even faster without having to train more
Cosmetic and anti-aging
EMS can help to tighten the skin if the connective tissue is weak. There is the possibility of reducing cellulite, as building muscle and reducing body fat results in a more beautiful silhouette and smoother skin. Detailed information is available here: EMS training against cellulite. Building muscle and the resulting tightening of the skin can also reduce wrinkles and help delay the aging process.
Relax and loosen
With a TENS-EMS combination unit, you have the option of not only challenging your muscles, but also rewarding them. A stimulation current massage does you good and can, for example, prevent sore muscles as well as loosen strenuous tension

Muscle building through stimulation current
With EMS you can target individual muscles as well as muscle groups with a freely selectable load. Your joints are not stressed because you can do without weights. This is also a reason why you can find EMS in many professional sports. Athletes improve their performance or use electrical muscle stimulation as an addition to their normal training sessions. A good example is skiing. Many well-known skiers use electric muscle stimulation to strengthen their legs, abdomen and back optimally for endurance and fast ski descents.
In the gym you prove your strength and endurance, at home you go one step further with muscle stimulation. And you can do it when and where you want. Whether right after work, in the evening while watching TV or in the morning before breakfast. The various programmes of an EMS device help you to constantly build up your muscles in all areas of the body. Stimulation current therapy can also be used to treat cellulite. As long as you eat a balanced diet and exercise and also use EMS, you can tighten the connective tissue and counteract cellulite. Here you will find an overview of all EMS applications.
You can structure your training with the EMS electrodes completely individually, according to the complaints you have or the goals you want to achieve. For female athletes, the focus is on building muscle. Many EMS devices, including the STIM-PRO X9, for example, offer you certain programmes that are specifically geared towards effective muscle building and can therefore be wonderfully used for EMS training in this area.
It is now widely known in medicine how quickly muscles can and should contract. Likewise, how long they need to relax. And furthermore, what the ideal training method for fast strength, strength-endurance and maximum strength should look like based on this. EMS technology takes this as its foundation and builds the equipment and programmes accordingly. This is how you get the perfect muscle training for your home.
