What is EMS?

At ELEMON, your workout is based on the EMS technology, the elicitation of muscle contractions using safe electric impulses.

Sounds too scientific? It’s actually quite simple.

The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes to the skin surface above the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses cause the muscles to contract, so the result is similar to the actual movement and regular contractions of the muscles

How itworks?

With traditional strength training, the brain sends impulses which stimulate certain muscles to contract. However, not all muscles have a well-developed connection to the brain. These muscles are not easily activated, therefore the result will not be as significant.

In comparison, EMS training stimulates all the major muscle groups and also strengthens the connection between the central nervous system and the muscles.

Because muscle fibers are activated in a non-regular order with EMS Training, a more intense level of training is enabled from the start, which creates more muscle fiber at an accelerated rate. More active muscle tissue requires more energy intake which therefore burns more calories, even at rest!

FAQ

Is EMS safe?

EMS is based on the same science used for rehabilitative physical therapy. This technique uses low-impulse electric currents that are not harmful towards humans. Their effect is limited to striated muscles such as those in the arms and legs. EMS is not designed to impact upon the body’s internal organs.

What does EMS feel like? Does it hurt?

EMS is not painful and does not hurt. Low-current electric current passing through your muscles causes a “fluttering” sensation in your muscles. It is a prickling sensation somewhat similar to the “pins and needles” you feel when your foot falls asleep. 

 

The external influence of EMS causes a disorientating effect. Due to the external influence on your muscles, it becomes more difficult to control your actions. This shows that EMS is working exactly as intended. Our machines activate your muscles and put them to work, providing you with an intense workout each and every time.

What happens during an EMS session?

Before the session, you’ll need to put on a special EMS bodysuit. This bodysuit is equipped with electrodes located in major muscle areas. 

 

The EMS system will then deliver quick waves of low-impulse electric currents to the user as they exercise. This stimulates muscles into performing harder than normal, thereby resulting in an intense workout that can not be duplicated under regular circumstances.

 

During the session, you’ll perform movements and exercise in time with the waves of currents. As unfamiliar as it may be, this sensation is your muscles becoming fully activated, making for an intense exercise experience.

What is the science behind EMS?

Even though the technology behind EMS is very advanced, the science behind it is based on a natural process.

 

Our brains send commands to our muscles through neurons, which are essentially electrical impulses. During an EMS session, similar electric currents are sent to your muscles. Even though they originate from an external source, your body’s muscles still recognize the EMS signals.

 

But there is a difference. Normally, only two-thirds of muscle fiber responds when the brain sends an impulse. On the other hand, an EMS signal will almost activate the entire muscle. 

 

By thoroughly stimulating your muscles that can’t be replicated naturally, an EMS session can provide more benefits than a traditional workout session.

What does my body feel like after an EMS session? Will my muscles be sore the next day?

At just 20 minutes long, EMS sessions are densely-condensed workouts. You can burn up to 2,500 calories during one of our sessions. As a result, the experience will leave you feeling exhilarated without being too taxing. You may feel the effect most on areas of your body you haven’t noticed before. 

 

EMS is not designed to cause any pain or discomfort. Done properly, EMS sessions are invigorating and fatigue-inducing but should not cause any lingering effects.
