Function & Effect.

The Minimum Maximum. The Trend of New Technology.

Everything under control. The basis of health, fitness and a well-proportioned figure is an active system of muscles. Physical fitness also has an impact on our mental well-being. These positive effects can be purposefully generated with electric muscle stimulation – provided it can take effect overall. Like it does with miha bodytec. The integral method produces fast, perceivable results by taking effect on your whole body deep under its surface. This makes miha bodytec more than merely a training tool. It is a fully thought-through system, inviting you to submerge into the new dimension of full body workouts.

A NEW FORCE FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE

More than ever, a powerful, athletic body is considered a symbol of success. If you want to keep up, you need plenty of capacity in reserve. But training in the different areas of strength, speed and endurance often consumes huge amounts of time and energy. All these training goals can now be achieved with a highly effective, time-saving method: miha bodytec whole body training!

 

MORE STRENGTH & ENDURANCE FOR A SOLID FOUNDATION

Muscular strength plays a special role as a basis for individual performance. High performance is only possible if there is sufficient muscular stability. Deep, stabilizing muscles are difficult to reach with conventional methods. This is precisely where miha bodytec – with the simultaneous activation of the entire musculature – makes it possible to train highly effectively while saving time. Unilateral stresses are avoided and any potential muscular imbalance is reduced. The training can be combined with active, sports-specific movements. That means the extra strength can match the target movements of the sport very effectively. There is no longer an absolute need for a strict separation of general strength training and more specific performance training, which is associated with more severe stress and a greater expenditure of effort.

 

IT ALL COMES DOWN TO SPEED – MORE POWER WITH miha bodytec

miha bodytec starts out where traditional practices leave off: While conventional methods only make possible maximum performance by boosting strength, training with miha body tec also increases speed of movement – without heavy stresses on the passive musculoskeletal system! Electrical pulses control the fast-twitch muscle fibers especially effectively and directly – no small advantage. It makes miha bodytec nearly indispensable to the performance-oriented athlete!

 

SIMPLY MORE SUCCESS – miha bodytec

Whether higher, faster or farther – studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of miha bodytec training*:

  • miha bodytec is the only form of training that increases maximum performance by means of improved speed of motion.
  • An increase in performance capacity was general observed, occurring in 84% of the participants!
  • Maximum strength already increased 17% after 4 training units!
  • 71% of participants showed a significant improvement in endurance!
  • Strength-endurance training values rose by as much as 108% after just 12 training units!
  • After just 4 weeks of training, maximum performance rose by as much as 30%!
  • Contraction speed rose by an average of 22%. The explosive power of the hard-to-train deep trunk musculature even rose by up to 74%!
  • The values that were measured underscore the fact that whole body EMS is up to 40% more intensive than traditional strength training with weights!

Health & Medical.

A new force for the back.

Back pain is still the No. 1 ailment in the population at large. Young and old are affected in equal measure. Stress, unilateral strains, and neglect of the back musculature are the main sources of the complaints.

PAIN BE GONE

A NEW FORCE FOR THE BACK

Back pain is still the No. 1 ailment in the population at large. Young and old are affected in equal measure. Stress, unilateral strains, and neglect of the back musculature are the main sources of the complaints. Over time, the conditions become chronic and further intensify due to avoidance behaviors. And so the vicious cycle starts all over again, leaving the afflicted increasingly desperate. There is a way out: targeted back training!

 

miha bodytec – RELIEF INSTEAD OF STRESS

miha bodytec starts out where traditional methods leave off. With targeted, individually controllable training, even the more deeply seated muscle groups are activated and strengthened. Conventional training can only reach them with difficulty, if at all. The spinal column gains stability. The back is unburdened perceptibly. Certain muscular dysbalances are evened out and the trunk musculature is strengthened – the ideal way to a healthy, strong back.


 

STRENGTHENING AT ALL LEVELS

Whether as prevention or for back complaints that already exist – studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of this form of training*:

  • 88 % of the subjects were able to sharply reduce their back pain. The frequency and duration of the pain turned out to be as much as 80% less.
  • More than 40% of participants complained about constant back pain at the start of the study. The figure was just 9% after 6 weeks of training.
  • The pain totally disappeared in 44% of the patients with chronic complaints.
  • The duration of the typical back pain in everyday life (lifting heavy loads, walking, bending over, heavy physical labor, chores, sports, driving or sitting for long periods) improved by up to 30%.

 

Figures that offer hope in the fight against public ailment No. 1.

The Team Players.

Successful Together.

Side by side. A personal trainer is an important partner in achieving success efficiently with miha bodytec. The default settings help trainers. They can adjust the settings to personally suit the people they are training, since trainers are the ones who know best about their customers‘ motivation and discipline. This makes a winning team out of man and machine.

Beauty & Wellness.

A NEW FORCE FOR THE FIGURE YOU WANT.

miha bodytec starts out where traditional methods leave off: Nearly all the large muscle groups are simultaneous activated and trained on an individually dosed, targeted basis – even the hard-to-reach muscles on the waist and hips!

LEAN & FIRM

A NEW FORCE FOR THE FIGURE YOU WANT

miha bodytec starts out where traditional methods leave off: Nearly all the large muscle groups are simultaneous activated and trained on an individually dosed, targeted basis – even the hard-to-reach muscles on the waist and hips! Metabolic and enzyme activity is increased, and energy consumption rises. The musculature is built up, excessive fat is converted into energy and successfully reduced – an effect that continues for hours after the training! The results are visible: effective and sustained body contouring from the buildup of fat-free muscle mass with the simultaneous reduction of excessive body fat.


NATURALLY LEAN AND FIRM – WHOLE BODY TRAINING WITH miha bodytec


The powerful muscle contractions stimulate collagen production and blood flow in the skin. Energy consumption is increased long-term. Positive effects: Weight and fat are reduced and the metabolism is quickened. The unattractive clumps of fat on the waist and hips, in particular, are combated effectively. Muscles visibly stand out with greater definition and firmness. Up to a certain age, cellulite can be prevented or fought. 

 

LOSE WEIGHT – SHAPE UP – FIRM UP: VISIBLE SUCCESS AT ALL LEVELS

Whether it's a narrow waist, defined muscles or less fat – studies have confirmed the effects of miha bodytec whole body training*:

  • 87% of participants enthusiastically report clearly visible body-contouring effects; there was a substantially more positive perception of their bodies.
  • 89% felt more firm and taut after the training.
  • The training reduced the percentage of body fat by up to 4% within 6 weeks of EMS training.
  • Women lost an average of 1.5 cm from their waist and hips.
  • Man reduced their abdominal girth by up to 2.3 cm – with a simultaneous muscle buildup of 1-2 cm on their legs, upper arms and chest in each case.
  • Overweight persons lost an average of 3.5 kg and 9% body fat as well as 6.5 cm at the waist and 2 cm on their upper arm circumference after just 13 weeks of training.
  • Seniors over the age of 65 lost 6.8% of their abdominal fat and 6 cm of their waist circumference even at the low training level of 30 minutes every five days.

EMS-Training:
science directive
implemented into practice!

According to recent studies, EMS training is one of the "top trends" in the German fitness market. The modern type of workout has now established itself as a highly efficient method for improving physical fitness, performance and health. However, the highly developed technology does not play the only decisive role. Equally important - and even essential for ensuring the success of the training and a safe application - is the trainer. He is familiar with his customers and uses the “EMS tool” in order to set a training-relevant stimulus in the shortest time possible. He accompanies and supervises the progress and simultaneously functions as a consultant for the right diet and a healthy lifestyle. The appointments and the support also ensure sustainable motivation along with a sufficient regularity of the training, through which personal training goals are optimally achieved.

 

In the application of EMS training, safety plays an important role. The current scientific results clearly show what is necessary for the safe use of the technology. For this reason, guidelines have been developed based on the recommendations of the respective sports scientists of the German Universities of Cologne, Kaiserslautern and Erlangen, who are researching in the field of EMS. The guidelines which should always be taken into account when using EMS* are the result of a consensus event with representatives of science, training and equipment manufacturers and cover both trainer and user.

 

 

The resulting recommendations from the scientific community are now standard in the EMS training and also an important criterion for TÜV certification for EMS providers. For practical purposes, some important recommendations can be derived from the guidelines:

 

  • The training must always be accompanied by a trained trainer. The latter is aware of the content of the directive and can implement it accordingly.
  • A trainer can train a maximum of 2 people at the same time with EMS.
  • The interval between two training sessions should be at least 4 days.

 

Conclusion:


EMS training belongs in responsible hands. It is not an application for group or hometraining. Even after an introduction phase for the trainer, EMS can never be a "selfservice training"!

Whole-Body Electromyostimulation – The Need for Common Sense! Rationale and Guideline for a Safe and Effective Training.

Kemmler W, Froehlich M, von Stengel S, Kleinöder H.; Deutsche Zeitschrift für Sportmedizin. 2016; 67: 218-221.

General rules:
  1. A safe and effective whole-body EMS training is always carried out with the company of a trained and licensed EMS trainer.
  2. For each new entrant, a history of the contraindications must be given before the first training. This is documented in writing and confirmed by both signatures of the trainer and the customer which also have to be archived. In the case of relevant abnormalities, the training may only be carried out after medical approval.
Preparation of the Training:
  1. As with any intensive body training, care must be taken to carry out the EMS training only in good physical condition. This includes a renunciation of alcohol, drugs or exhaustive preload in advance. No training should be carried out under the effect of febrile diseases.
  2. Full body EMS training involves a very high amount of muscle mass and thus generates a very high metabolic load on the organism. As far as possible this is to be compensated by a sufficient food intake in advance. In particular, a carbohydrates-rich intake is recommended. If this could not be achieved, a carbohydrate-rich but non-polluting snack (≈250 kcal) should ideally be taken approximately 2 hours before the workout.
  3. In order to counter potential renal stress (especially with unknown damage) by intensive whole-body EMS application, an increased supply of fluid (500 ml each) must be taken before, during and after training.
Application of the training:
  1. Regardless of the physical status, the users past experience or his corresponding wish, EMS training cannot be carried out at full-strength during the first training session or during a trial session. Especially this approach has led to undesirable side effects and negative health consequences in the past and must be avoided.
  2. After a moderate initial EMS application, the stimulus level or current intensity can only be increased successively. At the earliest after 8-10 weeks the highest value can be adjusted (subjective load of the user: difficult-difficult+). A training at full load, especially in the sense of a painful, steady tetanus during the current phase, must generally be avoided. In addition, initial training should take place with reduced effective training time. It is recommended to use a phase over 5 min for impulse acclimatization as well as a shortened workout with moderate reactivity (subjective load of the user: somewhat difficult) and intermittent load with short impulse phase (≈) over 12 min. The training period should then be carefully increased and finally arrive at a maximum of 20 minutes.
  3. In order to ensure adequate conditioning, the training frequency may not exceed one training unit per week during the first 8-10 weeks.
  4. Even after this conditioning phase, a period of ≥4 days must be maintained between the training units in order to prevent accumulation of muscle decay products, to ensure regeneration and adaptation and thus to ensure the success of the training.
Safety aspects during and after training:
  1. During the training session, the trainer has to deal exclusively with the user's interests. Before, during and after the training, the trainer verbally and visually checks the state of the trainee to rule out health risks and ensure effective training.
  2. During the training, the operating elements of the device are directly accessible for both the trainer and also for the trainee at any time. The possibility for operation / regulation of the device must always be given and must be simple, fast and precise.
