EMS training of the hamstrings

Man in the gym doing exercises to train his hamstrings with EMS

The hamstrings are the antagonist muscle to the quadriceps. The hamstrings, along with other muscle groups, are responsible for allowing us to bend the leg. Our modern lifestyle leaves little time for exercise. This shortens the hamstrings. Most of the time, the hamstrings are neglected in comparison to the front thigh muscles during training. With an EMS device, you can train your muscles in a targeted manner and eliminate a muscular imbalance.
