EMS Cycling is an electrical muscular stimulation studio based on results of EMG testing which determines how activated your muscles are. This assessment determines which muscles are firing and which ones are not which can improve performance. Cycling programs are then designed by a biokineticist who has done a thesis on professional cyclists vs amateur cyclists.
The founder of EMS cycling, Glynn Moolman brings a lot of cycling knowledge and has teamed up with Maroeska Matthee, who is a professional cyclist and is a multiple SA champ and cycle tour medalist.
EMG – Electromyography is an electrodiagnostic medicine technique for evaluating and recording electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. An electromyograph detects the electric potential generated by muscle cells when these cells are electrically or neurogically activated.
EMG testing and 11 years of biokineticist knowledge created the concept of EMS Cycling to use electrical muscular stimulation on muscles that are not activated.
EMS Cycling focuses on stimulating the muscles that are not firing to balance the body up with muscles while cycling. EMS cycling does not want to focus on muscles that are too dominant while cycling. Using electrical muscular stimulation on muscles that are too active while cycling defeats the purpose of this concept. EMS Cycling wants to improve weaknesses exposed in the assessment and not the strengths. Make your weakness a strength and see your cycling go to another level.
EMS Cycling then prescribes specific exercises on and off bicycle designed by a biokineticist.
Electrical muscular stimulation training is performed on your own bicycle after specific muscles have been activated off the bicycle to focus only on your weaknesses.
A watt test is performed before and after a 4 week ems cycling program to determine improvement of power (watts).
EMS cycling is for everyone who just wants a cardiovascular and resistance effort recruiting muscles fibres that conventional training cannot do. EMS cycling improves power (watts) and cardiovascular fitness in just 20 minutes of training. EMS cycling has no cables and can be done in studio and out on the road.
EMS Cycling is located at N1 City and Tygervalley and looking at opening more branches in the near future.
If you want to climb or sprint faster, prevent and treat injuries, improve cycling times then EMS Cycling is for you.
