EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) body suits have taken the fitness world by storm, promising to revolutionize workouts and accelerate fat loss. But how do these futuristic-looking outfits really work? In today’s blog, we’ll dive deep into the science behind EMS training and explore how it helps you shed those unwanted pounds.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a technique that uses low-voltage electrical impulses to stimulate muscles, causing them to contract. This technology has been used in the medical field for decades to treat muscle atrophy, injuries, and pain. However, it has now found its way into the fitness world in the form of EMS body suits, which enable you to target specific muscle groups during workouts for improved results.
An EMS body suit is a wearable device that features strategically placed electrodes that stimulate muscles throughout the body. When you wear the suit and start exercising, the electrodes send electrical impulses to your muscles, causing them to contract in addition to your regular muscle contractions. This results in a more intense workout, recruiting a higher percentage of muscle fibers and increasing the overall workload on your muscles.
When you exercise with an EMS body suit, you’re effectively doing two workouts at once: your regular workout and the additional muscle contractions caused by the electrical stimulation. This increased muscle activity leads to a higher caloric expenditure during your workout, which in turn leads to increased fat loss.
EMS body suits not only increase the intensity of your workouts, but they also help to improve your metabolic rate. The increased muscle activity leads to a rise in the production of certain hormones, such as growth hormone and adrenaline, which have been shown to boost metabolism. This means your body will continue to burn calories at a higher rate even after you’ve finished your workout.
Several studies have shown that EMS training can improve fat oxidation, the process by which your body breaks down and utilizes fat for energy. The combination of high-intensity workouts and EMS-induced muscle contractions forces your body to tap into its fat stores for energy. This results in a higher rate of fat loss compared to traditional workouts alone.
Although the primary goal of EMS workouts is fat loss, increased muscle activation also leads to muscle growth. Having more muscle mass can be beneficial for fat loss because muscle is metabolically active tissue, meaning it burns calories even at rest. This helps to create a higher overall metabolic rate, allowing you to burn more calories throughout the day.
EMS body suits are a powerful tool to supercharge your workouts and maximize fat loss.
