How EMS Training Can Help You Better Your Sporting Game

Many people have a passion for sport; whether it be marathon running, weekly rugby games or those who played minor league soccer, everyone has the sport that helps them stay fit and let off some steam.

These sports often come with challenges of their own, from injuries to fitness demands. In recent years an increasing number of research publications highlighted the benefits of EMS training for professional and recreational athletes.

A systematic review of sports science research by the German Sport University Cologne in 2011 established that EMS training is a promising alternative to conventional strength training. Apart from enhancing strength parameters and motor abilities, the time-efficiency factor is an added advantage in professional sports. Since the introduction of whole body EMS training devices, as used at BODYTEC, research shows significant improvement of training in maximum strength, speed, jumping and running performance.

EMS research by Filipovic and Kleinoeder focused on the benefit EMS training could have for professional soccer players. 22 professional soccer players from a German soccer team participated in EMS training over a period of 14 weeks and were tested 4 times during the research period in the following areas:

  • Strength performance
  • Speed and sprint performance
  • Jumping performance
  • Kicking speed

The results of the EMS research revealed that the players who incorporated regular EMS training into their workouts improved significantly in all tested areas.

The evaluation of the individual tests showed:

  • (Maximum) strength performance increased on average by 30.07%
  • Jumping performance increased on average by 9.14%
  • Speed and sprint performance increased on average by 19.38%
  • Kicking speed increased on average by 16.3%

Many professional and recreational sports athletes have found that EMS training has helped them up their game in their chosen sports. In fact, whole body EMS training has been proven to be an effective and more time efficient alternative to conventional strength training in high performance and professional sport.
