Most golfers dream of being able to drive further and strike the ball more consistently without the worry of suffering with back pain and twinges.
That dream is now a reality as EMS training can help golfers achieve improved performance and reduced pain with just one 20-minute session per week.
What is EMS Training?
EMS stands for Electro-Muscular Stimulation. An external EMS device sends a finely tuned electrical signal to the muscles, causing them to contract.
The signal mimics the natural signal sent by the brain to the muscles but is more powerful. Combined with a ‘free will contraction’ during an exercise, and the external stimulus from the EMS device, individuals activate up to 98% of their muscle fibres.
EMS for Golf
Specific and targeted EMS training will help golfers develop all-important muscular activation and strength from their legs, through the core and up to the shoulders and arms.
The core is especially important in golf for power development and transfer from the legs, and regular EMS training will help strengthen the core muscles, improving rate of force development – meaning longer drives, higher chips and better control.
Just one 20-minute session is required per week, meaning strength training is over and done with, and it’s straight back to the course or the range. Improved leg and core strength also means walking around the course will be easier and more enjoyable.
EMS is also scientifically proven to significantly reduce back pain. The niggles and twinges from the driving range will be gone and you’ll be able to drive faster and further, pain-free, meaning getting back on the green sooner.
EMS is also proven to combat the effects of sarcopenia, the start of which can onset from age 35. This means helping to maintain and gain muscular strength and improved ability and mobility, and a better quality of life as we get older.
Who is EMS training for?
EMS Training is extremely versatile and low impact, making it a perfect form of fitness for virtually anyone. No longer reserved for the elite, EMS personal training is now available to everyone to try nationwide.
EMS also appeals to those who don’t like the typical gym environment. Sessions are conducted one-on-one or one-on-two, so the personal aspect is great for those who find the gym floor or group exercise studio intimidating.
Just one 20-minute session once per week is all that’s required, EMS is so effective that in the 20-minute session you perform a whole-body workout and get amazing results equivalent to multiple sessions over many days of traditional strength training.
For that reason, it is also a great option for busy professionals who can’t make time for conventional strength training.
