The biceps muscle is essential for lifting loads and aesthetically often represents the fitness of the entire body. It is the antagonist to the triceps and the smaller of the two upper arm muscles. Most beginners put too much strain on the biceps too often, which can often lead to overtraining. In order to give the biceps a growth stimulus , 1-2 applications per week with 5-10 minutes of EMS stimulation are usually sufficient. It is essential to take 2-3 rest days between EMS training sessions.

We would like to show you here how you can train your biceps with EMS in combination with conventional exercises. We have selected a special exercise for you that you can do both without and in combination with EMS. With the EMS device from axion, you can support biceps training with electrical muscle stimulation.
