Less than 2% of your day to get FIT

That’s because a 20-minute Impulse workout consists of up to 50,000 muscle contractions, including the deep stabilizing muscles as well. More than 20 minutes Impulse workout would lead in overtraining and will exhaust your muscles completely.

IMPULSE (EMS) TRAINING ENHANCES YOUR SPORTS PERFORMANCE

Impulse Training improves speed significantly. EMS has been successfully used to support endurance training efforts for professional and amateur athletes.

Training for a big marathon this summer? Maybe it’s an Ironman, a half-triathlon or an Olympic race. Whatever distance it is, you know that you will need to put heavier-than-usual loads on your body to meet the training plan.

Do you feel the stress already? What are the chances you will get to the starting line with no injury? Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) may be the final piece in your training plan puzzle to stay healthy, not just for the race, but for the entire season.

In the late 18th century, medical pioneers learned that electrical current in the body caused muscles to contract. By the 1960’s, Soviet coaches were using EMS as an integral part of their elite athletes training regimens. Over the course of several decades, the coaches claimed and various research projects showed that treatments produced remarkable gains in the power output of the people in their programs.

I CAN MAKE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHOICES

World Cancer Day 4th of February

Everyone can take steps to reduce their risk of cancer by choosing healthy options including quitting smoking, keeping physically active and choosing healthy food and drinks.
Tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of cancer globally. Quitting smoking will have a major positive impact on an individual’s health and that of their families and friends. The good news is that quitting at any age is beneficial, increasing life expectancy and improving quality of life.
Individuals can also reduce their risk of many common cancers by maintaining a healthy weight, and making physical activity part of their everyday lives. Being overweight or obese increases the risk of ten cancers – bowel, breast, uterine, ovarian, pancreatic, oesophagus, kidney, liver, advanced prostate and gallbladder cancers. Specific changes to a person’s diet can also make a difference – for example, individuals can limit their intake of red meat and avoid processed meat.
Alcohol is also strongly linked with an increased risk of several cancers. Reducing alcohol consumption decreases the risk of cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, oesophagus, bowel, liver and breast. Overall, more than a third of common cancers could be prevented by a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy body weight.

Everyone can make healthy lifestyle choices to reduce their risk of cancer.

The Effects of Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) towards Male Skeletal Muscle Mass

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) has been introduced and globally gained increasing attention on its usefulness. Continuous application of EMS may lead to the increment of muscle mass and indirectly will increase the strength. This study can be used as an alternative to help people especially those living a sedentary lifestyle to improve their muscle activity without having to go through a heavy workout session. Therefore, this study intended to investigate the effectiveness of EMS training program in 5 weeks interventions towards male body composition. It was a quasi-experimental design, held at the Impulse Studio Bangsar, which examined the effects of EMS training towards skeletal muscle mass among the subjects. Fifteen subjects (n = 15) were selected to assist in this study. The demographic data showed that, the average age of the subjects was 43.07 years old ± 9.90, height (173.4 cm ± 9.09) and weight was (85.79 kg ± 18.07). Results showed that there was a significant difference on the skeletal muscle mass (p = 0.01 < 0.05), upper body (p = 0.01 < 0.05) and lower body (p = 0.00 < 0.05). Therefore, the null hypothesis has been rejected in this study. As a conclusion, the application of EMS towards body composition can increase the muscle size and strength. This method has been proven to be able to improve athlete strength and thus, may be implemented in the sports science area of knowledge.
