1- Reduction of the superficial fats
Active electro stimulation or electro fitness is based on the combination of pinpointed electrical impulses and a routine of constant physical exercise which cause a significant increase of energy consumption.
This inevitably produces a process of cell regeneration of the muscular fibers which triggers the basal metabolic rate, thanks to the increase of respiratory action of their multiple mitochondria. A decrease in the superficial layers of fat and a slender panniculus is commonly noticeable, which allows for the anticipated muscular definition.
2- The simultaneous exercise of all muscular groups.
In order for all abdominal muscles to be toned and a general strengthening of the area known as the core, it is essential to concentrate on the work which is carried out on the whole body, including aerobic exercises.
In the majority of active electro stimulation or electro fitness equipment, between 9 and 10 muscular groups are activated during the training session. The vests or Bio-Jackets are equipped with 10 pairs of electrodes that work individually on the control over the flexing and stretching of the muscles, assuring the stress reduction of each muscle and an improvement in the effectiveness of physical exercise.
3- A correct and controlled exercise of the abdominal muscles.
During the electro stimulation training, the intensity of the impulses is gradually intensified without the sensation of brusqueness or overstrain. The strength, intensity and duration of the impulses may be adjusted to suit each person.
The intervals between the impulses can also be adjusted in accordance with the level of training and the frequency of the exercises. Although the main action of ElectroFitness is aimed at the figure (reaffirming and toning), there are specific kinds of metabolic programs in some equipment, generally with frequencies between 5 and 7 Hz and more superficial pulses focused on a dermal action, improving the quality of tissue: the "orange peel skin" effect, stretches, flaccidity etc
The results obviously depend on each specific case, bearing in mind factors such as age, type of metabolism and muscular fibers, physical condition etc.
