What doe’s EMS & TENS feel like?
People react differently to the use of EMS. Some people report a tickling feeling and others compare it to a constant tapping on the skin.
Is EMS & TENS comfortable?
Yes, it will, just along as you follow the advice in this manual and start off on the lowest settings and gradually work your way up. There are some cases where people get a prickly or stinging sensation on their skin. This, however, is generally caused be a misuse of the electrodes and improper placement. The self-adhesive electrodes should be discarded after a solid month of use.
When should I use the Russian Stim?
The Russian Stim can be used before or after a workout in the gym. It can be used at home or in the office while sitting in a chair, watching TV, or using the computer; it can be used just about anywhere.
How long should I use the Electric Muscle Stimulation?
We recommend starting off each muscle group for 5 minutes and eventually working your way up to 30 minutes per muscle group. You should always work different muscle groups on alternate days. Give the muscle group you are working out a day off between workouts but you can exercise calves and abs every day.
When will I notice a difference?
It will take about 2-4 weeks to see any real, noticeable improvement. The improvement could be a slimmer waistline or a tighter muscle group. You can actually see and feel the blood pumping into your muscle on the very first session. You may be sore after your first workout.
Can I use the Russian Stim in the gym?
Yes, the Russian Stim can be taken to the gym to warm up or cool down before/ after a workout.
Will I grow muscle bulk using the Russian Stim?
Through a combination of EMS and resistance training, you can develop your muscle groups a lot further than by plain resistance training. Also, while EMS devices themselves will not develop massive arms, they will tighten and tone your current muscle groups.
