.. as to the optimal position for the adhesive electrodes during an electro-stimulation session. Consequently, Sport-Elec is going to try to answer your various question by setting out below the effective positions for the sport (rectangular) and beauty (round) electrodes for different areas of the body.
We are definitely not trying to give an anatomy class here but is is necessary to understand the whole muscle system to get a more precise grasp of the human muscle system.
The muscle map of the human body comprises more than 600 items with wild names such as : manducatory muscles or mime muscles, the thenar muscle, or even the gluteal muscles.
Sketch of the main muscles.
Examples of positions :
For your information : the positions on the sketches below are valid for both round and rectangular electrodes.
Similarly, always comply with the colours of the connections coming out of the device: same colour on the same muscle.
You men want to gain more volume and you women are fed up with this little bit of skin that dangles under your arms ! Here are the solutions for you :
Long supinator muscle of the forearm
This position is useful for muscle training and for gaining volume using the devices' muscle strengthening programs. But it is equally very useful for diminishing the effects of lactic acid (substances manufactured by the muscles after sporting exertion and that result in pain during the following few hours).
The straight thigh muscle
The medial great muscle
For you men, this strengthening brings you more noticeable muscle build-up for sports such as tennis or even football.
But for you women, this area, which is very difficult to build up muscles in, will become curvy and well-toned thanks to this position. Even so, this should be carried out in moderation to avoid over-developing the muscle.
Biceps (crural) of the thigh
The gluteus maximus
This position is ideal for shaping the gluteal muscle.
This positioning of the electrodes paired with the health programs of a device such as Multisport pro will bring soothe and relieve pain.
The medial and lateral gastrocnemius
The abdominal rectus
It is the abdominal muscle which, when electro-stimulated, will make a six-pack appear and get rid of this little pot-belly
These muscles are very difficult and painful to work on. So, go on, the electrodes positioned like this will allow you to work on your muscles… at will !
The pectoralis major muscle
BE SURE to follow the positioning.
DO NOT POSITION ON THE HEART AREA !
Electro-stimulation is a crucial ally of your health and well-being.
But it does not perform the cardiac exercises that are essential for the upkeep of a perfect machine such as the human body.
So, don't forget, you have to move !
It is quite easy, in fact: walk more often, take the stairs instead of the lift, go jogging or speed walking, and do this as often as possible. If you like water : swimming is excellent exercise.
We hope that we have answered most of your questions on how to position the electrodes.
