    Have you ever used the electric muscle stimulators before? Do they work? What do they do exactly? Have you noticed muscle tone improvements from using them?

    That's enough questions for now.

    I thought about buying one because I'm to lazy to keep going to the gym to work out. I figured that by-buying one of these kits, it might help to get my muscles toned. Any info will help ;)

    I've got one but I've got no idea if they work, I got it as a gift when I couldn't think of anything else I wanted so it's stuck in a cupboard with some other crap, I keep meaning to use it for sexual purposes :)

    Let's just say, if you spend money on a "muscle stimulator".......I've got a bridge you can buy(Just my opinion)

    That sounds too much like hard work, I'll just have some cake and tell you what that tasted like instead :)

    Because of the horrors of electromyograms, I will never have a desire to use any electrical stimulator of muscles.

    I'd be inclined to think it worked on those people who were inclined to show some progress in their workouts. Anyway.

    If they worked, you'd see tons of older buff people. Yes Gladys, I worked out to As The Stomach Churns.

    You beat me to it again, young lady. This is what I was talking about in another thread...

    Well, these just use sticky pads, not needles stuck directly into the nerves (yeah, I've had an EMG before) and the frequency & voltage are much different. The muscle stimulators really are not painful at all.

    Muscle stimulators---electro stim in another form. I typed in a few months back about Nuerophones--it allows for sound to by pass the ears. and I use it for meditation and listening. It's too clumsy to be a hearing aid.

    I use other muscle stimulators--a combination of herbs like Tongal Kat, catuaba, horny goat weed and Kaotrom, which can give you a boner, but I find its more effective to take after a workout, beause they tend to allievate fatigue.

    I had a pancake.
    After using Ab Energizer I have a nice muscular butt.
    I've been using it for about one year, a few times a week. I read a lot. So for a year I read laying on my bed, the stimulator round my butt.

    I have a tens unit given to me as a gift. In conjunction with working out, I've noticed a great deal of improvement. Their mainly used in this kind of forum for cbt, I think.

    My mother used a TENS device for neck and back pain. That works. Electrical stimulation can heal frayed nerves when used properly. I've read the mild doses of electricity can help heal broken bones faster.


    Another thread on this topic wrote of a man who tried to stimulate his wife without knowing what he was doing and killed her. He was using some wires and plugged into an electric socket. Yes, a Darwin Award nominee.

    I don't think they work. The men and women doing the adds, already have 6 and 8 pakcs, there is no way in hell they gor those bodies by strapping on a vibrating belt.
