What is more important. Exercise or diet? Just like strawberries and chocolate, exercise and diet go hand-in-hand. Many people have the idea that if they exercise or engage in full-body EMS training, they can eat whatever they want. On the contrary, others percept that if they eat healthily, they don’t need to exercise. However, it is crucial to note that this train of thought can, in fact, cause unexpected weight gain and unhealthy habits.
According to research conducted by the World Health Organisation, almost a third of Australians aren’t getting enough exercise. The study also highlights that more than 1.4 billion adults are putting themselves at heightened risk of deadly diseases by not getting enough exercise.
Regular full-body EMS training or exercise, as well as a healthy diet, can have many benefits to your everyday life. These include increased energy, happiness, health and even a longer life. A combination of electrical muscle stimulation physical therapy and a healthy diet are pivotal to determining a person’s overall health.
Exercise and full-body EMS weight training can help you lose weight by burning mostly fat. Diet alone won’t help you reach your goals. Engaging in regular full-body EMS weight training will help boost your metabolism, meaning you will burn more calories all day long.
You don’t have to be in the gym for hours at a time to see the benefits of exercise. The great quality of electrical muscle stimulation physical therapy is that you only need 20 minutes to see the results.
A well-rounded routine should include:
- Cardio – heart health
- Resistance training – strength
- Functional-fitness training – balance
- Stretching – flexibility
Why Electric Muscle Stimulation in Sydney is becoming so popular
EMS as a training facility is not only for celebrities. It is designed for everyday Australians like us, who mostly lead busy lifestyles, whether working in an office all day, a job that requires frequent travel as well as the full-time job of parenthood.
Whatever the category is that best describes you, EMS is a technology that is fitting for anyone’s schedule and helps to get longer, lasting results in a significantly shorter amount of time than conventional gym workouts.
Like any other workout, for EMS to be effective there are other lifestyle choices that need to be made in order to see quicker and effective results such as maintaining a healthy diet and limiting treats for special occasions, as opposed to daily.
EMS is a very beneficial training method. It burns fat a lot faster than traditional training methods. For example, you will engage up to 90% of your muscles in just one EMS session helping stimulate fat burning more intensely.
In addition to this, EMS is designed to engage more muscles at a faster rate than usual, which keeps them working even when you have a resting heart rate.
What are the other benefits of EMS?
Other than the fact that you can burn fat faster than conventional training in Sydney, EMS has many other benefits such as:
- Improving the circulation of blood throughout the body
- Perfect for busy lifestyles with only 2 sessions per week required
- More muscles are engaged in a shorter session
- Used as a rehabilitation tool for injuries
- Correcting the imbalance of muscles
Recommendations: What to eat when you engage in full-body EMS weight training
You should also be aiming for at least 2-3 hours of medium-intensity exercise per week. This can include full-body EMS training or regular weight training. Mixing in aerobics, HIIT and sports is a great way to vary your workouts.
When engaging in full-body EMS training, you need to ensure your muscles are fueled with sufficient energy, protein, vitamins and minerals to help you tone up and build muscle. If you are not fueling your body with essential nutrients, your full-body EMS training sessions may not be as effective.
|Breakfast||● Breakfast is one of the most important meals, helping you kickstart your day. It is important that you don’t eat high-fat and high-calorie foods as your first meal.
● Protein and fibre are a great way to start your day
● Meal: Poached eggs, grain toast, fruit and tea are one of our favourite combinations
|Mid-morning snack||● Snacks are totally optional, however, if you feel like you need something to power through, a light snack is what you need!
● This will prevent you from snacking on unhealthy foods throughout the day.
● Snack: having a banana and a cup of yoghurt is a great mid-morning snack
|Lunch||● Lunch is usually consumed at work school or uni. Instead of ordering take-away, we recommend pre-packing your lunch to ensure it is nutritional and fulfilling

● Meal: 1 cup of steamed broccoli, 1 cup of brown rice, garden salad & chicken/meat/fish
|Rich-evening snack||● A light complex carbohydrate-rich evening snack may help you sleep. Try and avoid heavy foods or ones that are high in refined sugars
