Is it Safe to Use EMS Devices after a Workout?

Aug 22, 2008
Electronic Muscle Stimulation devices, as called EMS devices, are frequently used by those wishing to build muscle tone. There are several benefits associated with these devices when used in combination with exercise. They cannot work on their own, but when you work out you can actually enhance the effects of an EMS device. That has made this device a must amongst bodybuilders in order to enhance what they are doing with the weights.

The benefits

EMS devices have become so popular because they have so many benefits that they offer those who enjoy working out. They make working out more bearable and they make the results more evident.

The benefits of EMS devices are as follows:

- The nerves and muscles recover faster from exercise if you use your EMS device directly after exercise. So yes, it is safe to use right after exercising. It is actually ideal to use these devices before and after exercise.

- Strength, muscle growth, and endurance are improved when it is used before and after exercise. Certain muscles groups are strengthened and that also makes exercising an easier task. As you use the device and exercise, you will notice that you are able to endure higher resistance over time.

- An EMS device can stimulate the muscle tissue that is not influenced by exercising. There are certain parts of the body not influenced by exercise, so an EMS device can be a great way to make sure that every part of the body is reached.

Just know that an EMS device is not going to give you six pack abs in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, six packs are not free in any form. However, an EMS minimizes the damage that happens during exercise. This helps you tone your body and have the muscle structure you always wanted. In other words, you can have the body of a young God or Goddess by using an EMS device as part as your exercise routine.

EMS devices are also used for those with health conditions that cause muscle atrophy. By hooking up to an EMS device, they are delaying that atrophy, therefore extending the amount of time in which they can use those muscles. This is great for both physical and mental reasons because the quality of life can be improved greatly.

Precautions

There are some precautions that have to be taken when using an EMS device. These are standard precautions and it is good if you know what they are so you can safely use the device to its fullest. Those precautions include:

- Not using the EMS device during pregnancy.
- Not using the EMS device when you have a heart condition. This means no use when a pacemaker is involved because it can result in interference.
- Not using the device if you have epilepsy.
- Not allowing the device to be used by children. The only reason why children should use an EMS device is if it is recommended by a doctor.
- Not using the device during menstruation because it can cause severe stomach cramps.

Just remember that an EMS device is not a substitute for a good cardiovascular workout. If so, then everyone would be in great shape without having to exercise. So if it sounds too good to be true, it is. Your EMS device is meant to be a supplement to your exercise routine to prep your muscles and to repair your muscles faster after exercise. These two aspects alone can help you maximize your exercise routine so that you can achieve the finest of results.
