Frequently Asked Questions
What is EMS and how does it work?
EMS is a full body workout that targets your whole body rather than one specific body area. EMS stimulates up to 98% of all muscles whereas a traditional workout may only use 50% of a muscle. This means your workout can be a lot shorter, a 20 minute workout can be the equivalent of a normal 90 minute session.
Is EMS safe and does it hurt?
Yes, it is safe. EMS training has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective by reputable sports institutions. And no, EMS training is not painful. The sensation of electrical current stimulating your muscles is unusual but something most people get used to very quickly.
How many times do I need to train and how quickly will I see results?
The idea is to replace one to two of your conventional sports sessions with one EMS workout. To see optimum results, EMS should be used once a week in additional to one or two conventional sports activities, or twice a week, if you are currently too busy to work out. First changes can usually be seen after four sessions, depending on lifestyle. Scientific studies have shown the following results over a 12-week period using the E-Pulsive training program: 9% body fat loss, 30% increase in strength, 89% of people felt stronger and fitter.
Can I do EMS as an addition to my normal workout routine?
Yes, you can. Ideal additions to EMS training are low to medium-intensity stretching activities such as yoga and Pilates as well as any type of cardio training. The recovery phase of an EMS session is typically two days and therefore the equivalent of a conventional personal trainer session. No high-intensity resistance training should be done during the recovery phase. All other sports related activities can be continued as normal.
