EMS training for the quadriceps

Man trains his quadriceps with an EMS device in the fitness studio

The quadriceps is the front thigh muscle. It is the opposite of the hamstrings, our largest muscle and consists of four strands. These lead from the knee to the hip joint and the pelvis. The leg extensor is responsible for allowing us to straighten the knee while running. Due to our predominantly seated activity with bent legs, the leg extensor muscles and thus often the groin shorten. To prevent this, you can use EMS training and an EMS device to train and build up your muscles!

How to place EMS electrodes to train your quadriceps

Since the thigh muscles or the quadriceps are a relatively large muscle group, we recommend using slightly larger electrodes such as the rectangular 10x5 cm electrodes

Please note when using EMS:

The intensity should be set so that the intended muscle contracts significantly without causing you to feel pain.

Before training, you should warm up your muscles to prepare them for the upcoming exertion. Our EMS TENS combination device STIM-PRO X9 has pre-installed warm-up programs that start automatically before the actual training programs. So you can carry out your training completely relaxed.
