EMS training for the forearm

Trained forearm of a man with an EMS device

The muscles of the forearm extend from the fingers through the hand and wrist to the front and back of the forearm. They are often forgotten during training sessions, although they are a fundamental aid in the development of other muscles such as the biceps and triceps and important in preventing injuries to the elbow or wrist. Strong forearms, for example, improve grip strength. This allows us, for example, to shake hands or carry shopping bags. With the right EMS device, you can specifically strengthen your forearm muscles!

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.
