IS EMS USEFUL TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Weight loss occurs when there is a caloric deficit so when more calories are burned than calories are ingested. EMS is an active gymnastics supplement that makes the muscles burn more energy through the activation of the muscle fibers.
We can then conclude that EMS is useful to lose weight. However, the most effective way to apply EMS for weight loss is as a supplement to a healthy lifestyle. EMS should be understood as an extra exercise (one to two times a week) to especially tone the muscles very efficiently but should be also be accompanied by cardiovascular exercise (ie: walking, running, cycling, swimming, etc.)
With EMS training, your muscles will be more toned and stronger. This means that more calories are burned, the more muscle mass, the more basal calories are burned (basal calories are those that are needed daily to be alive). You also burn those necessary to exercise and those necessary to carry out the day-to-day routine.
Benefits of EMS to reduce fat
- Toning of the muscles
- Improved consistency of arms, thighs and calves
- Glutes endurance
- Chest strengthening
- Improved body shaped in a record time
Other more technical advantages for losing fat with EMS are
- Activation of body areas that are difficult to work at the gym
- Caloric expenditure multiplies by two
- Stored fats are burned breaking down fat accumulations
- Increase of the consumption of proteins, fats and nutrients.
- Helps to regenerate and oxygenate tissues
- Helps eliminate cellulite
A strong muscle burns more calories, it is more effective. As the muscle is stronger, the exercise will be done with greater intensity which will increase the caloric expenditure. You will run faster, you will lift more weight, you will make the spinning or step class more intense.
Therefore, EMS is an effective and proven method that gives results from day one. Not only for weight loss but also to increase physical strength, enhance your beauty, recover from injuries or simply gain well-being.
