Electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) can be a useful tool for a weight lifter. Here are four ways that you can benefit from EMS:
The Kots’ method is great to use 4-6 hours after a workout as part of a double split system; whereas, the recovery method works best the day after training and you can do it while you’re on the computer.
Time management is important when you have a busy schedule. Most people are on the computer at least an hour or two a day. Why not accomplish two tasks instead of just one?
Just like listening to an audio book while driving or stretching while watching television, you can use EMS while you’re on the computer. For example, if you trained legs yesterday and your quads are sore today, hook up the electrodes to those muscles, set the machine to a low-intensity, pulsing mode, and surf the web as normal.
Tomorrow we’ll discuss one of the more popular methods of restoration – that is, massage.
