Perhaps the most famous, "untwisted" TV advertising method."Passive gymnastics" Kinda.And it is this method belongs to the largest number of myths.In problem areas special electrodes are attached, and under the influence of a pulsed electric current stimulates muscles - the muscles receiving signals, in response to which the muscles behave as during exercise: cut, relaxed and even curled.Blood flow to the working muscle increases, stagnant lymph is accelerated.
However, despite the hype, myostimulation session is neither an hour or even 30 minutes of exercise in the gym, since myostimulation is not one of the main beneficial properties of physical activity - there is no training of the cardiovascular system, remain untapped our joints andligaments - and for them physical activity is vital!
Passive work the muscles under the influence of current improves trophism adjacent soft tissues, increase their oxygen supply, improve the metabolism in the subcutaneous fat, slightly raise the tone - no more, that
«Inflate", give prominence athletic muscles and significantly improve body contours, and the more completely replace physical activity myostimulation not.Lose weight, relying only on myostimulator also quite difficult - the muscle is loaded enough and burns a small amount of calories (weight loss occurs either by burning extra calories, or with a decrease in daily caloric intake - diet).
Advertised weight loss effect "just a few centimeters" from myostimulation session, as a rule, due to the improvement of local lymph and blood circulation, accompanied by the withdrawal of stagnant fluid.Therefore, to radically change the contours of the body, relying only on lying on a sofa "on the device" is not necessary.However, the subject of prolonged use (courses for 20-30 procedures with an interval of 2-3 weeks), and combined with diet myostimulation - a good assistant for acquiring a good figure.It is recommended not to eat 1 hour before and 2 hours after the session, plus a competent drinking regime - at least 1.5 liters of fluid a day (best mineral water without gas) - if of course there are no problems with the kidneys.
At home myostimulation does not differ from the one proposed to you in the cabin.It is only necessary to purchase a special device.The good market home miostimulyatorov literally overflowing with suggestions, the only advice is to choose the number of electrode devices for at least 4 (preferably 6-8) - they are effectively tiny two-electrode.
How are domestic miostimulyatory?Miostimulyatory a wide elastic waistband with an electronic device in the middle: the unit is much more efficient any manual massage is working muscles of the abdomen and waist.The principle is: weak electrical current is transmitted to the nerve endings in the skin that control muscle contraction.It makes sense to wear the device during a break between workouts, but do not remove all day - then the result will be noticeable.Or myostimulator as eight electrode pads of greenish rubber: they are attached to the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, and are designed to generate and pump up the muscles in these areas.
Experts believe that it is important to attach the electrodes on the circuit in the base of each muscle to the millimeter, or the good of the procedure will not.It should be remembered that myostimulation can not be an alternative to fitness, physical activity, ie it can not be used instead of physical exercise, but also - yes!And the effect is many times stronger than if you try to combine passive exercises with the device and physical activity plus a reasonable diet.
And before attaching electrodes - lubricate the problem areas a suitable anti-cellulite cream.Sometimes the cream is already attached to the device, or the manufacturer indicates the most appropriate means.However, you can use your regular anti-cellulite cream, as under the influence of pulse current action cream significantly improved, and the cream penetrate better into the skin.
