The i-motion EMS equipment has introduced the latest innovation in the field of muscle electrostimulation through a Smart EMS Software, who adds value because it is the most revolutionary equipment of the sector. Sequential impulses are of great quality and require only a first initial setting to make the team automatically adapt parameters of intensity in the various programs of each training protocol. In addition, it also makes possible the active recovery after making a great effort.
We tell you how their currents work. Will you join us?
Electrical muscle stimulation, what are the sequential currents?
They are the currents responsible for transmitting an electrical stimulus for different muscle groups. I.e., all it contrary to the active muscle electrostimulation, that works in a global way regardless of the exercise that it is performing.
These impulses allow to provide function and order to the musculature that is going to work at a particular time, regardless of the program used. Moreover, they can be programmed with any of the 26 available in the i-motion equipment and in any of the 5 preset sequences.
The EMS sequential impulses are a very novel way of controlling the order of contractions and generate a new way of working agonists and antagonists’ muscles, as well as work independently as the lower and upper train. These impulses are responsible for transmitting stimuli by muscle groups and muscle chains depending on your application. So, the technical work increases.
Where are sequential i-motion EMS equipment currents applied?
Electrical muscle stimulation with the biojacket i-motion allows to encompass a larger muscle groups area, and the application fields of the sequential streams may be practically applied to all. However, we must bear in mind what kind of sport, personal training or fitness will it be applied.
The reason lies in its way of adapting and its period, as they will be different in the training of a boxer or of a swimmer, for example. Main and secondary muscles are also different in each of them, as well as scripts and programs used.
Sequential currents in swimming and boxing athletes
The most useful way to use contraction and relaxation periods will make the sequence of the program appropriate to the type of training and sequence chosen. For example:
- Swimming. The main muscles in this sport are the latissimus dorsi and buttocks, while the abdominal, lumbar, biceps, chest, trapezius, triceps and shoulders are secondary. In this training and programs, you would require a Strength 1 maximum force to largely stimulate the type II fast fibres and big improvements in strength and speed. To complement and to the endurance, it is advisable to use the Cardio program.
- Boxing. The main muscles in this competitive sport are the deltoids, biceps, triceps, abdominals, quadriceps and trapezius. Moreover, the secondaries are: hamstring, buttocks, the lower back, the calfs and the latissimus dorsi. As in the previous sport, training and programs respond to the Strenght 1 for explosive strength. But we can also use Resistence or Bodybuilding 1 for maximum strength and the Cardio program as complementary.
This comparison of the use of electrical muscle stimulation in different sports tells us that we can use sequential streams of the i-motion equipment adapted to the type of sport and the area that we want to work, where the sequence lies.
Thanks to the possibility of combining the major muscles with the training programs, the coach and the user can specifically focus on the sequence they need to work.
Now that you know what the currents and the sequential pulses are, apply them into your training routine to be more precise.
