Electric abdominal muscles stimulators better known as EMS are simply an abs toning gadgets using EMS technologies which targets the core muscle by sending electric impulses through the conductive gel pads to target each section of your core muscles.

“Do this stimulator substitutes my regular exercises?” Good question, to be fair and to offer my best and honest review, and this might come as bumper to many is that it does not.
I am sorry to be the one to bust that bubble, many reviews will tell you how you’ll have six pack in a matters of weeks just by using this gadgets without lifting a fingure just to make a sale
These gadgets are to supplement and not to substitute your regular workout regime, look at them as an assistance, a “short cut assistance” for lack of a better word to speed up the time to get the desired results.
It is therefore recommended that to archive faster results you follow a set workout plan whether at home, at the gym or at work during your break hours.
Typical description for any abs stimulator is recommended you follow your set schedule while using the device as earlier mentioned for 30 minutes, five times a week over a four to eight-week programme or schedules as per your liking.
There are EMS stimulators that helps to sculpt your arms too available in the market, that help to archive that wholesome body shape according to your needs. Don’t worry, we will recommend the best EMS that suits your needs later in our review.
A notable study was done in 2005 by Compex Inc a Health Care Equipment and Supplies Company on the effects and results of the EMS and it finding were published on a well respected Journal of Sports Science and Medicine (JSSM) as well as National Center For Biotechnology Information (NCBI) a US government site
A group of adults were subjected to the study, divided into two group one group stimulated there abdominal with EMS pads the other group refrained to engage in any activities while wearing the gadgets the results were glairing.
Actual Reference from the Actual Study Below
“We studied the effects of self-administered neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on changes in strength, endurance, selected anthropometric measures, and subject’s perceived shape and satisfaction of the abdominal wall. Twenty-four adults (experimental group) stimulated their abdominals 5 days per week (20-40 minutes per session) for 8 weeks and refrained from engaging in any additional exercise during the study. A control group (N=16) refrained from exercising the abdominals or engaging in any other exercise training during the study. Subjects were tested at the beginning, mid-point, and end of the study. Isometric strength of the abdominal muscles was tested using a isokinetic dynamometer, endurance was measured using the ACSM curl-up test, abdominal circumference was measured using a steel tape measure, and body shape and satisfaction were assessed via questionnaire. The stimulation group had a 58% increase in abdominal strength, whereas the control group did not change. The stimulation group also had a 100% increase in abdominal endurance versus a 28% increase in the control group. Waist circumference decreased by of 3.5 cm in the stimulation group compared to no significant change in the control group. All 24 subjects in the stimulation group felt that their midsections were more “toned” and “firmed” and 13/24 (54%) felt that their posture had improved as a result of the stimulation. None of the control group subjects reported changes in these parameters. There were no significant differences in body weight, BMI, or skinfold thickness over the course of the study in either group. NMES, as used in the current study, resulted in significant improvements in the muscular strength and endurance of the abdominal region, as well as subject’s perceived shape and satisfaction of the mid-section.”
Though not conclusive or 100% solid, the study proves one thing that EMS works only when combined with regular exercises and from my personal Use and from the feedback that I have gathered from my happy customers which ill share later on this guide I can confidently attest to this.
