EMS training 20 minutes a week should help with muscle toning and weight loss.
Well, that’s what all the brochures and fitness instructors claim. It may also be true…
Question is: to use an EMS machines or go with the old school method of traditional workout?
What is EMS Training? EMS
EMS according to ems training.com, stands for: (= electrical muscle stimulation or electromyostimulation) is a new trend sport that originally comes from physiotherapy. This high-intense whole-body workout uses low-frequency electrical impulses to stimulate those muscles that are often ignored by conventional training methods.
With the EMS machine, one gets plugged to a machine while doing some stretching techniques. They claim that this method is used to train astronauts. It takes only 20 minutes a week to achieve the goal of muscle build up and toning. The longevity of the 20 minute training would probably depend on the financial capability of the person.
But what if after three months, no progress has been made? To stop the session would be like giving up after so little effort has been made. On the other hand, to continue the session, without seeing any progress even after some months would just be a waste of time and money.
I am still on it. Although, I did miss some weeks due to the corona pandemic which forced all the establishments to close down temporarily.
Needless to say, after 4 months, there has been no change in muscle build up. I also have not shed a single kilo from my weight.
But, I guess it, like all the other method, the effect does not happen overnight.
I have to continue with the system, no give justice to the saying: “no pain, no gain”.
It doesn’t really matter much, what method one uses… as long as one perseveres with the workout!
Let’s do it! Let’s stay fit!
