Due to the emerging protocols against big group meetings in the wake of the COVD-19 crisis, many people are finding themselves with more free time than normal. Around the world, precautions have been made to limit access to various public institutions, including gyms.
Many people have found themselves without access to the training equipment they’ve gotten accustomed to because they don’t have access to a gym. Regardless, establishing social distance to aid in the battle against the coronavirus is no cause to deny the body the workout it needs!
As we shift to a new normal, some people remain hesitant to go back to traditional workout settings such as gyms and electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) studios, and would rather stay safe at home and figure out alternative ways of exercising the body.
It’s simple to do a full-body exercise at home, and an EMS device can seemingly help compensate for the decreased intensity of such a workout. So, in this article, we’ll discover whether it’s actually possible to do EMS training at home.
How EMS training works
EMS is a new type of workout that cuts down on the amount of time you spend exercising. One might show dramatic improvements in their body with just one or two 20-minute workouts each week.
EMS training is regarded as being beginner-friendly and straightforward to learn, in addition to the convenience and efficiency it provides. Because of these benefits, EMS training is an excellent workout for people of all ages and fitness levels.
This type of training forces your muscles to work harder, helping you to reach your objectives faster. EMS training is particularly good for weight reduction, according to various scientific studies, regardless of your fitness level or age.
It contracts your muscles by transmitting low-frequency electric impulses as you work out. Its qualities make it a workout that is three times as effective in half the time, which is certainly beneficial to you as a fitness enthusiast.
The intensity of the impulses, as well as the workouts themselves, may be adjusted to accommodate any age group or fitness level. This allows the trainer to make quick adjustments based on the needs of the individual.
As previously said, there are already older individuals who train to utilize EMS on a daily basis, despite their physical limitations. This means that anyone may participate in a full-fledged EMS training regardless of the frequency (or even absence) of prior training.
Work out remotely through the Internet
The silver lining in this circumstance for individuals who are unable to leave their homes is that, thanks to modern technology, the world can stay linked even when face-to-face interaction is no longer the sole method of doing so.
The internet is an excellent source of fitness information. You may access whole fitness lessons and routines at the touch of a button!
We strongly advise you to use social media to get fitness advice from professionals and devoted fitness enthusiasts. YouTube is practically a gold mine of free fitness videos just waiting to be discovered.
Looking to join a yoga class from the comfort of your own home, or just learn how to do crunches and situps properly? There’s bound to be a video accessible to help anyone broaden their workout repertoire from the convenience of their own home for a simple full-body workout.
This being said, a simple search on YouTube would yield tons of workout videos that primarily deal with using EMS at home. Simply select one that fits your fitness level and your desired routine and get into a better shape in no time within the confines of your home.
Maximize resources at home
Although not everyone has a home gym, this does not have to prevent you from getting a productive workout. Many workouts may be done at home, either with no equipment at all or by using ordinary household objects.
Lunges, for example, are an excellent lower-body exercise that also engage the calves and thighs. Lunges just require a space large enough to take a few steps inside. Hallways, living rooms, and other areas with open, even floor space will work well.
Squats with a weight to engage the arms are also an option for those searching for a full-body workout at home. No weights on hand? No worries! Grab a large dictionary or thesaurus off the shelf and make the most of what you’ve got!
Similar exercises can be done with basic and relatively inexpensive gear. Get your arms in shape with EMS and a set of dumbbells, or find other body weight exercises with the help of an EMS-qualified instructor.
You can mix and match traditional workout routines and non-conventional implements at home while wearing an EMS suit to reap the benefits of EMS while staying at home.
The bottom line
There are a number of ways through which you can maximize your EMS workouts at home. However, doing so isn’t the most ideal setup. There are a lot of drawbacks to having a home gym, more so to doing EMS unsupervised and on your own.
For one, many individuals become sidetracked while working out at home because life gets in the way. The refrigerator is right there, the kids are tugging at your clothing, and the TV and comfy sofa always beckon you to stop.
While the things listed above may help you engage in EMS workouts in the comfort of your home, nothing beats heading to the gym for a few minutes of EMS training. After all, our We202 EMS program gives you all the benefits of a full workout in less than the time usually needed.
This being said, going to the gym might help you block out distractions and focus on your workout.
Gyms can also be more inspiring since they are crowded with individuals who are also striving to achieve their fitness objectives. That’s a lot better than working out while your family watches TV.
