Thread: electric muscles??

hey my question is about those electronic muscle stimulating machines. I always thought they where a joke but in the past few days Ive heard more than one person saying great things about them. Not that they replace working out obviously but that as a suplementaion to post workouts or laggin body parts they could be useful. What are everyones thoughts??experiences??

Sending small electric currents to a muscle may bring about a contraction and depending on the voltage a reletively strong one. This practice is done in rehab and even for relaxation, but for building muscle...fogetaboutit. PB is right It did not live up to the test.

I would feel over time this may effect the body's own nervous system .... You want contraction stick a fork in the light socket. Whooooo ! its like doing a full set of squats ,,,, hehe ..just kidding. DONT DO IT ....

Come on...let me try ONCE! Let's really get the benefit and use the clothes dryer outlet!
on a more serious note:
I did however experience tens use as therapy for a pinched nerve while in chiro treatment years ago. It did feel good and increased the blood flow which I believe to be the main benefit.

I bought one tried it many times than stuck it in the paper to sell it.Only good thing I found about it was I could stick it on my ex and wind the current up to make her squeal.If you are in rehab they might be a good idea otherwise PB is right.A tens machine is quite often used in childbirth to help relieve pain and cramping of the muscles.Can also be used to help control contractions.
