An APA Stress in America survey conducted in late February 2021 found 42% of U.S. adults reported undesired weight gain since the start of the pandemic, with an average gain of 29 pounds.
Many mental health pros report that this year’s lockdowns are triggering new and existing body image issues for many people. Negative body image involves “feelings of shame, anxiety, and self-consciousness,” according to the National Eating Disorders Association—and people who experience it are more likely to suffer from depression, low self-esteem, and eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. An unhealthy body image can manifest in a number of ways, says marriage and family therapist Kim Campbell, MFT. “[A person] can be looking in the mirror and wishing that their stomach was flatter or there are more extreme behaviors like overexercising, disordered eating, pinching themselves all the time, weighing themselves all the time, measuring themselves all the time.”
Don’t be that “person” that seeks unhealthy ways in order to achieve the body image you want. As we all know, there’s no easy route to achieving a healthy body image other than putting in your time and effort. But what if you don’t have time to gym and are impatient to see results?
Give Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) Training a try. Your first EMS session is paid for by Nuzuna!
EMS Training allows you to burn fat and sculpt your muscles with workout sessions as short as 20 minutes. Forget the two-hour weight training session placing unneeded stress on your joints and muscles.
How Does EMS Training Provide Faster Weight Loss?
A study published in 2016 concluded that “EMS Training can be considered as a time-efficient […] option to HIT-resistance exercise for people aiming at the improvement of general strength and body composition.”
According to Wolfgang Kemmler and his associates, EMS Training proved even more effective than HIIT training for improving strength and composition. This form of training gives you your time back. You can literally get in, workout, get showered, and back to the office during a lunch hour.
But how does it provide such fast results? An average person only uses 30% muscle fibers. However, training with EMS enables your body to activate nearly 90% of muscle fibers; including deeper muscle tissues that are harder to target with traditional training. That’s nearly 350 muscles working simultaneously; contracting roughly 36,000 times in a 20-minute training session. More muscle contraction leads to faster muscle growth, which in turn will deliver results 3x faster.
Faster Muscle Gain With EMS Training
EMS Training enhances athletic training, bodybuilding, and recovery. It can be used to work muscles harder and longer than an athlete can normally work them, simply because of fatigue and mental wear.
This form of training also places much less stress on the body. Since it requires little to no weight resistance during exercise, there is less stress and damage done to joints and tendons. This allows your body to work on building muscle rather than expending energy to repair damaged tissue.
In addition to less wear and tear on the body, EMS Training also allows you to isolate and strengthen weaker muscles leading to an overall stronger body.
EMS Training Reduces Cellulite Appearance
In addition to strength gains, most people exercise to tone and shape their bodies as well. EMS Training not only helps you increase muscle strength more efficiently, but it can also help you reach your cosmetic-related goals.
As previously mentioned, EMS Training provides deep muscle stimulation. As a result, it has been shown to help reduce cellulite. This leads to increased muscle mass, tighter connective tissue improves circulation and skin tone while improving your metabolism and burning fat.
Is weight gain affecting your self-esteem? If yes, then it’s time you give EMS Training a try. Step into our Nuzuna’s EMS suit and your results could be as little as 20 minutes away!
