Muscle Stimulation for Strength Training: What are the benefits?

Strength training or resistance training is an anaerobic activity that can help increase muscle, tendon, and ligament strength, enhance bone density, boost metabolism, and improve joint and cardiovascular health. It can also help increase endurance and improve performance in many sports. Essentially, it promotes health for all and should be part of our regular training, which enables us to maintain independence as we age.

However, if you are a starter, you may easily give up because of the painful arms or legs the day after. If you are not getting the results you’ve been working toward, you might feel frustrated. And without instruction, you may not target the muscle you want to exercise. That’s where our muscle stimulator MStim Sport LGT-232 comes in.

In this article, we will talk about how MStim Sports LGT-232 helps your functional strength training and improves the performance and overall results.

Better prepare the body for exercise, reduce the risk of injury, and improve performance.

Before you get your sweat on, using electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) or Neuromuscular Electric Stimulation (NMES) for warming up can boost blood circulation and improve the muscles’ dynamics so that you are less inclined to injury and prepare you for the demands for the exercise.

NMES elicits muscle contractions involuntarily using electrical impulses. Unlike the voluntary muscle contractions created during traditional warm-up activities, NMES is not selective in the fiber type it stimulates, which could result in a warm-up that targets the various muscle fiber types simultaneously.

Adopting NMES as part of a warm-up protocol can also improve performance. It can provide greater twitch force in the knee extensor muscles, not negatively affect the stretch-shortening cycle before ballistic movement, and have neurological and muscular advantages.

NMES is effective in enhancing an individual’s training regimen when used consistently over a period of time.

Recruit fast-twitch fibres to speed up the effect of exercising

Normally, it is your body that fires your muscles by sending electrical impulses from your brain through your central nervous system. With EMS, quicker and more intense muscle contractions are added without stressing your brain, tendons, and joints, making your workout more effective and safer.

Besides, EMS can recruit and activate deep muscle layers and fibres that you struggle to activate using conventional exercises. In our body, there are slow and fast-twitch muscle fibres. The slow twitch fibres contract slowly, which helps you move longer. This type of muscle fibres is always stimulated first during exercise. Fast twitch fibres, in comparison, give you a sudden burst of energy but get tired quickly. They are much harder to activate, but they are required in strength training. EMS can specifically target the harder fast-twitch fibres, marking the exercise much more effective at growing your muscles and improving strength in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Use TENS to relieve soreness and speed up recovery after exercise

Post-workout muscle soreness is a common reaction to exercise, especially for strength training which makes your body undergo so much stress.

“We build muscle the same way: by breaking it first.” Strength training creates tiny microtears in your working muscles. These microtears are necessary for muscle growth. They can stimulate the process of repairing and adapting to microtears to increase muscle mass (hypertrophy), building your muscles back stronger and healthier than before. But they also lead to soreness and pain.

The soreness and pain can not be prevented. The good news is MStim Sport LGT-232 can help relieve it. MStim Sport LGT-232 sends electrical impulses to interrupt the transmission of pain signals from reaching your brain, thus soothing pain and discomfort. It can also stimulate the release of endorphins, our body’s natural painkiller.

The treatment is simple with our user APP. You only need to change the mode to “pain relief” and adjust the intensity according to your preference. By choosing “relaxation massage” mode, you can better relax your muscles, boost circulation, and promote recovery.

EMS offers a promising alternative to traditional strength training for enhancing strength parameters and motor ability. If you are looking to improve your workout results and want to make many squats, lunges, crunches, bicep curls and other exhausting and strenuous exercises more fun, considering using MStim Sport LGT-232. It can help you recover faster, prevent injuries, reduce muscle soreness, enhancing training results.
