There are many benefits to EMS, such as electro-stimulation training to eliminate flaccidity in the arms.
One of the great fears of many people is the flaccidity and not only the flaccidity of the legs, abdomen or glutes. The flaccidity of the arms joins this list of problem areas for all people who want to achieve a beautiful figure.
The flaccidity in the arms occurs when there is a disproportion between the muscles and the growth of the skin. That is why women are affected more often than men as they have about 15% less muscle mass.
Other reasons for flabby arms can be:
- Deterioration of collagen and elastin as a result of aging or bad habits.
- Excessive sunshine.
- Significant weight loss.
- Excess alcohol.
- Low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet.
- Genetic predisposition.
- Lack of physical activity.
Degrees of flaccidity in the arms
Slight flaccidity: That which in neutral position is not noticeable, but in certain postures is evident.
Moderate flaccidity: In neutral position the flaccidity is noticed, but the contour of the arms does not change.
Intense flaccidity: The sagging of the skin becomes evident in neutral position and distorts the contour of the silhouette.
How to eliminate flaccidity in the arms with electrostimulation?
More and more people are going to sports or aesthetic centers in search of a solution to this problem. However, we have good news and that is that with full body electrostimulation training you can train this flaccidity of the arms as well as the legs, glutes and practically the whole body.
To achieve visible results in your arm workouts, you only need to perform an EMS training session always under the supervision of a professional or following the recommendations of a specialist.
Electrostimulation will help you to strengthen, tone and firm your muscles and skin in specific muscle groups thanks to the combined work between electrical impulses and voluntary muscle tension.
Eliminate flabby arms with EMS Training
Muscle contractions during EMS training stimulate blood circulation in the skin as well as collagen production. This has several effects. On the one hand, the skin is specifically tightened and revitalized through constant training and often feels much firmer and tighter. Both blood circulation and the optimal supply of collagen are felt very quickly and durably on the skin. EMS training makes the skin look significantly better.
Here are three exercises to get firm arms
Thanks to electrostimulation you can get firm arms by doing these 3 exercises without the need to lift weights.
1. Biceps curls
Upright position, feet hip-width apart, toes pointing slightly outward, knees slightly bent. The upper body is tense and the arms are stretched at the sides of the body. In both hands you can hold an anti-stress ball or any object that will help you. The upper arms do not move and remain close to the body. The forearms, on the other hand, are bent so that the palms are pointing inward. Now bend your arms at the elbow joint and bring your hands towards your shoulders. Then slowly and in a controlled manner, return to the starting position. Three sets of eight to twelve repetitions.
2. Triceps kicks
Sit up straight in a chair and tense your upper body… Extend this arm upward so that your elbow is about next to your ear. The arm is not pushed all the way down. Now lower your forearm back and bring your hands behind your head. Then bring the arm back to the extended starting position. The other hand fixes the elbow of the working arm. Three sets of eight to twelve repetitions per side.
3. Lateral Lift
Stand with your legs hip-width apart and your upper body upright. Raise your arms to shoulder height, palms facing up. Now bend your arms and slowly push your hands with the dumbbells towards your shoulders.3 x 15 repetitions
Promote firming of the arms with diet
Diet also plays an important role in defining the upper arms. Not only is a low-calorie diet bad for your health because it slows down your metabolism, but you can lose little more than water and muscle mass on it. Regular exercise requires a healthy diet. Your body needs protein to build muscle, preferably from lean meat, fish, dairy products, and soy or legumes. This will even help you lose weight in the long run, as muscles stimulate fat burning.
