EMS training of the shoulder muscles

Woman does the fitness exercise lateral raises to train the shoulders, which is also possible with an EMS device

With the shoulder muscles we move the shoulder girdle and the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is very prone to injury and should be protected by the shoulder muscles. In order to give the shoulder area more stability, it is important to strengthen the shoulder muscles. It supports the joint by pushing the head of the humerus into the socket.

With electrical muscle stimulation, you can specifically train the shoulder muscles. Building muscle in the shoulder also prevents neck pain. A predominantly sedentary activity quickly results in an unhealthy shoulder posture, which can have a negative effect on the upper cervical spine. With the right EMS device, you can build up your muscles in a targeted manner!
