Quadriceps training with electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
EMS devices and electrodes recommendations
EMS training of the quadriceps
The quadriceps is the anterior thigh muscle. It is the counterpart to the leg biceps, our largest muscle, and consists of four cords. These lead from the knee to the hip joint and to the pelvis. The leg extensor is responsible for allowing us to extend the knee while walking. Due to our predominantly sedentary lifestyle with bent legs, the leg extensor muscles shorten and as a result, the groin often shortens as well. To prevent this, you can train and build the muscles with EMS training and an EMS machine!
How to place EMS pads for training your quadriceps
In the video you will see different placements of EMS pads on the leg extension to train all muscles of the quadriceps. Also learn which programs of the EMS machines we recommend for strength training, endurance training and for building muscle mass. We recommend the electrodes 10 x 5 cm or the electrodes 12 x 7 cm for use.

The optimal program for your application
Since the stress sensations and goals of EMS training are very individual, we have compiled an overview with different needs for you. Simply connect and attach the muscle stimulator electrodes, select the program and start the training:
