&are you;Really work the stimulators muscle?
Stimulators or muscle vests electrofitness are devices designed to work the body in a passive manner. The training these devices provide is through the contraction of a muscle elicited by an electric stimulus. The other most widely known use, in addition to the electrofitness, is the recovery of the muscles after an injury.
But, do they Really work? What benefits do they have? Are there any contraindications or anything I should know before using them? I am here today to answer these questions.
Have you ever considered the pacing as an alternative to the sport?
The first thing you should know is that there are different types of stimulators. There are primarily two types. The first type is the electro-local, to train, or recover, the muscles of a particular area, muscle, or muscle group.
The second type is the electro-stimulation of the whole body, to train the whole body. It is what is called electrofitness. The electrofitness is being used in many cases to replace a conventional training.
If you are thinking of buying a electroestimulador muscular and do not know which, I recommend you see this comparison of stimulators.
Benefits of electrostimulation
The techniques of electrostimulation are evolving, and despite its price, every time are more people that use this novel technique of training. In addition to the centers of stimulation, you can also buy these devices to use at home.
The benefits of electrostimulation are numerous, but it also has its contraindications, so I advise you to continue reading until the end of this post. We see the benefits:
- Strengthens the body without impact
- Retrieves injuries
- Improves muscle contractures
- Prevents muscle atrophy
- Massage the muscles
- Increases muscle tone
- Decreases joint pain
- Helps to reduce cellulite
Despite looking like an alternative passive to the sport, with which to work the body without effort, you should know that the pacing is not for everyone. The vests electrostimulation or electrofitness, or the devices of electrostimulation carries its dangers, which you'll see below.
The electrostimulation promises that with a 20 minute session you can achieve the same results as hours of conventional training. In addition, without physical effort. Then, why don't we forget to do sport? Despite the fact that we can sell it as something very advantageous and beneficial, the pacing is a topic that is more serious than we have been told.
We have been told (or led to believe), that the electroestimulaicón muscle serves to: lose weight, lose volume, relax the muscles, firm the skin, combat cellulite, recover injuries, eliminate fat, tone up, etc... But you have to know and be very clear that this technique is not for everyone.
Then let's see what are the risks of electro muscle stimulation.
- Is contraindicated if you have problems with circulation
- Metabolism problems
- In case of disturbances or neurological problems
There is increasing scientific evidence that this type of training has negative effects on health, such as the radomiolisis, a disease that causes the destruction of muscle tissue.
Despite their contraindications and the risks involved, the electrostimulation can be safe if practiced in a specialized center and guided by professionals. I would like you to see this video with the hazards and precautions before you use an electro-stimulator.
Is it effective electrostimulation?
What, then, Serves to burn fat? Despite the promises of those who advocate this method and advertising, there is no evidence that the electrofitness thin. In the case of the gain of strength, in contrast, if it is effective. What happens, that despite being effective, you must know that training on a voluntary basis (traditional exercise), is achieved by means of the training liability of the electrostimulation.
The electrostimulation must be a responsible practice, supervised by a specialist and to be able to be in the presence of a physician.
