EMS training for the calf muscles

Man is jogging, while you can see his pronounced calf muscles through EMS training

The extension of the ankle, which is important for walking and running, is triggered by the contraction of the calf muscle. Shortened calf muscles impair mobility in the ankle of the foot. The foot can no longer be pulled all the way up while walking. This can lead to complaints that can be prevented by strengthening your muscles and calf training.

With the right EMS device you can build and train the muscle group of your calf! Strengthened calf muscles also help prevent calf pain and calf cramps. The muscles act as an extra layer of protection for the ligaments, joints and bones.
