The present study investigated the influence of a 12-week electromyostimulation (EMS) training program performed by elite rugby players. A 12-week EMS training program demonstrated beneficial effects on muscle strength and power in elite rugby players on particular tests.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation: Manduu’s Gym of the Future Is Here
There is a fitness revolution beginning in America that is quite amazing. For the first time, advanced technology has been adapted to provide a direct workout to the human body. When we think of technology and fitness, wearable devices immediately come to mind. These devices, however, are passive and depend upon us to move or run or cycle so that data can be gathered and analyzed. Bottom line: a wearable cannot deliver a workout.
Assessing the effects of training with EMS
Extensive research has been conducted on electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) training.
The following study by E-Fit found that EMS can increase:
- Spinal mobility
- Structural balance and symmetry
- Autonomic balance in the central nervous system
- Insulin sensitivity
