When it comes to exercise for weight loss and body shaping – muscles play an important part in lifting our metabolism and losing weight.

Our muscles are like an engine that is constantly burning. Therefore, the larger the muscle mass, the higher your basal metabolic rate (BMR) or resting metabolic rate will be. The more calories you burn the easier it will be for your body weight to be regulated and for you to sculpt your body.

Your muscles send a lot of signals and messengers to your brain that influence your metabolism. In particular, the messengers interleukin-6 and interleukin 15 speed up the metabolism of the glycogen in your muscles. This means that your blood glucose will be transferred more effectively from blood to muscles, which is essential for regulating your energy and blood sugar levels.

Generally speaking, muscles have a higher basal metabolic rate than fat tissue. For example, 500 g of muscle mass burns more than 50 cal of energy more each day than the same amount of fat. Therefore, the more muscle tissue you have on your body, the higher your resting metabolic rate for will be. Furthermore, after a training session, your body will continue to burn extra calories several hours as it tries to pay off an “oxygen debt” to your muscles. The result? More fat loss.

Body Toning

It pays to remember that even a fast metabolism or strict diet will not give you a perfectly toned body. Another important reason for building muscle, particularly with the assistance of Technobody EMS training, is that body sculpting, or toning your muscles gives you a much more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Losing body fat is only half the equation. Technobody EMS training can totally tone your body, giving you beautifully toned triceps, a flat stomach, firm thighs and lifted bottom, and a toned chest & upper body. Your body will be taught, more streamlined and your clothes will fit (or hang) entirely differently on your body!

Proven Statistics from Scientific Studies

Studies from the University of Bayreuth and Erlangen-Nuremberg (2008) successfully proved that regular training with Technobody EMS result in positive body shaping changes within a short period of time:

    • 89% of subjects felt they were significantly tighter, stronger and more stable through training
    •  87% reported significant visible effects in body shape
    • on average, women reduced the hip size by 1.5 cm
    • EMS training reduced body fat by up to 4% within six weeks
    • men reduced their waistlines by up to 2.3 cm, along with a muscle gain of 1 to 2 cm on legs, chest & upper arms
    • athletes received muscle gains of an overall 4 cm (significantly higher than conventional workouts)
    • seniors over the age of 65 reduced their body fat by approximately 6%
