guys i have the original ems unit as prescribed by charlie.i bought it from CF’s contact in the back of the cfts.bought in donegal and ill give it to someone whos serious about the sport.battery packed so can be used straight after training and pads also
@no23 - agreed but im never going to be a 100m sprinter. 40yards at most is my race and im about 4.7s on that now. So im thinking maybe this could help? Do you think i should not think about it yet and just stick with my weights/plyo’s/sprints?
When do you decide you’re ready for it?
Have you noticed good strength gains from an ems?
As i said in the other thread im keeping it as simple as possible (ala kellyb) but im very interested in the feet strength gains and white fibre recruitment.
programming is where i fall down big time.
Its mostly my fault in that i do whatever takes my fancy on a given day, but its also forced on me by the haphazard nature of the gaa. Literally we could have a c’ship match fixed on a tuesday night to play on that sunday!!
As soon as gaa is over im goin to stick much more rigidly to the 313 type program from the gpp dvd.
i suppose i was just thinking that if i can get an ems on the cheap that does the job then i’ll give it a go and see if its any good or not. esp on my weak feet. I probably will pick up that model and give it a go but i’ll also work hard on my gpp too
You’re right - by all means do and experiment for yourself.
The GAA structures don’t lend itself I know.
What you need to do is develop a weekly system that you use every week, but in the case of an extra week or 2 have ramping up that can be used (or plugged in) to allow you peak and taper for the next match 2 weeks away.
Not easy - but that’s the only way.
313 as you can imagine doesn’t work during the season.
Yeah, like no23 said, it works great as a recovery unit. I use it for massages, warm ups, capillary stuff, and muscle relaxing programs. Its great.
I did make a custom max strength program. I havent noticed strength gains, but then again, i haven’t used it consistantly. Maybe if you incorperate the max strength stuff 3-4x/week you will notice a difference. Probably not directly from ems work, but in conjuntion with everything you are already doing.
It takes time though (like any other training), due to only having 4 pads as well. But its worked great for me so far, i just ordered in some Dura-Stick II electrodes, so im going to start using it more again.
dude, i bought the neuro track xl today infact. it is awsome from what i can tell. i claimed it on my private health fund and got 70% of $ back, so cheap as.
8 pads, all the settings are adjustable. the intensity level with the 8 pads was fantastic, i could only get about 1/3rd of the intensity before it hurt too much.
i bought through physiosupplies.com. he seems like a real top bloke too, i visited him today, good honest bloke.
