Stretching after an EMS workout is highly recommended to prevent excess muscle soreness. When you work out, especially with a high intensity workout like EMS training, you build up lactic acid in your muscles. When you stretch your muscles, it allows for a release of that lactic acid, which in turn improves the blood circulation to the muscles. This way you will recover faster and feel less muscle soreness. More of the benefits, less pain!
Stretching also helps lengthen the muscle tissues, so you have more flexibility in your next EMS workout. This allows you to have a greater range of motion when performing your muscle building exercises, making it just that bit more effective.
Here is a list of our most commonly advised stretches. Are there any other muscles causing you regular soreness, but can’t seem to reach them properly with these moves? Please ask our team for some suggestions for effective stretches.
