Electrical muscle stimulation

YEAH, work those abs, triceps, quads, shoulders, calves, thighs, biceps, traps, and pectorals. This is what it’s all about! You get up every morning, head to the gym and strive to get the best workout you can possible achieve. That’s how we all stay fit, healthy and looking great. No short-cuts aloud. Am I right or am I right? On the other hand, what if there were short-cuts at your disposal. Would you take advantage of them if it meant not having to work so hard? Hey, some people certainly do, every single day. But, don’t get too excited just yet. I’m not offering an electrical muscle stimulation machine that will rid you of every workout from here on out. I’m simply proposing food for thought.

Let’s talk about the famous electrical muscle stimulation machine that’s been around forever. You have to have seen this at least in a movie of some sort. It was clear as day in the Bruce Lee story. The actor, Jason Scott Lee, was wearing an electrical muscle stimulation contraption while he typed. He told his co-worker that it was like doing 200 push-ups. Hmm, what do you make of that. I have to resort back to the common notion of “If it’s too good to be true, it isn’t true.” I did my homework on these machines. Bodybuilders who’ve used them don’t care for the results. At least the ones I read about. They claimed that the electrical muscle stimulation process isn’t truly for building mass. These devices were invented to benefit coma patients and folks who cannot use their muscles, because they’re bed-ridden for example. The electrical muscle stimulation machine is NOT for building great mass.

About ten years back I saw an electrical muscle stimulation contraption for sale in a Self-Care catalog. If I recall correctly, it was a few hundred dollars. Don’t waste your hard-earned cash on such things. You could much better spend that money on a decent weight bench and weight set. This is the true way to building muscles. With supplements enriched in protein and vitamins on your side, you shouldn’t have any trouble bulking up the old-fashioned way. Just don’t forget to work your entire body, or you’ll look a bit funny.

    I used electrotherapy after and injury and have been hearing radio ads about electronic muscle stimulation for toning muscle. I know there are a lot of different uses for these devices. I agree, working out with weights is much better than relying on a machine. The muscle stimulator I used had three modes, I enjoyed the benefit of the mode used to block pain.
