What if shocking your muscles with electricity helped them grow and develop faster?
What if it could reduce exercise-induced muscle damage and help you recover better from your workouts?
What if it could straight up make you stronger?
Well, this is what the team at AIPT wanted to find out. We had our friends from Bionic Fitness come in and show us what Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is all about.
We had read that it is an easy (not easy at all) and safe way to gain muscle and strength faster and boost post-workout recovery.
It sounded too good to be true. One thing we can say for certain is that no form of exercise we had ever done has made us feel that tired that quickly. The common sentiment amongst the team was that we had not experienced anything like that.
We had to put on a black bodysuit, no underwear allowed. We were then sprayed with water to surround our muscle better when the EMS began. It is worth noting that the water felt exceptionally cold for many of us. After being doused with water, they quite literally strapped us in.
