You see loads of ads/infomercials for so called EMS units that contract muscles using electrical pulses.
Now I know that spot reduction doesn't work, and that using these products isn't give get you a 6-pack or anything, but can EMS work (at all)?
I think: 'Hey, if the muscle is still contracting, it doesn't make a diffrence if it's me or the machine" - but then that's probably what they want me to think.
Comments? Is it a kind of cheating that might yield results, or just another gimmick?
PS: I have NO intention to buy/use any such products, just curious!
