The benefits of electrostimulation for the buttocks
Electrostimulation is a method using electrical impulses to strengthen muscles and soothe certain pains in an entirely natural way. Targeted electrostimulation on the buttocks is particularly beneficial for relieving the pain felt in the event of muscle contractures or sciatica of the buttocks.
Find out everything you need to know about this method and how it can help you get firm and rounded buttocks.
How does electrostimulation work?
Electrostimulation is a natural process for causing muscle contraction through electrical impulses. These weak electrical currents, of varying frequencies and intensities, are generated by a device and transmitted via electrodes placed on the muscle to be targeted.
The electrostimulation device therefore makes it possible to almost identically reproduce the process of the natural contraction of our muscles in a pain-free way.
Electrostimulation performs three main functions:
● Relieve acute or chronic pain,
● Strengthen muscles and improve physical performance,
● Relax the muscles by promoting blood circulation.
The benefits of electrostimulation targeted on the buttocks
Electrostimulation is effective on almost every muscle in the body. It is particularly suitable for targeting the buttocks.
Shaping the outline, strengthening all the muscles of the buttocks or even relieving pain are some of the benefits of electrostimulation targeted on the buttocks.
Electrostimulation to strengthen the buttocks
The glutes are relatively difficult muscles to build. They are in fact little used because it is mainly the thighs that are activated when we perform everyday actions.
Physical exercises combined with targeted electrostimulation sessions on the buttocks make it possible to obtain shapely buttocks in a short time. The electrical impulses generate muscle contractions on all the gluteal muscles: the small gluteus, the medius gluteus and the large gluteus.
Electrostimulation to relieve contractures in the glutes
Contractures are muscular pains that generally appear after excessive effort on a muscle during training or a sports competition.
The pain felt is very similar to that of cramps. While cramps are by nature short-lived, the pain persists for several days in the case of contractures. This can become very debilitating if it happens on a daily basis.
Electrostimulation, stretching exercises and a few days of rest help relieve the pain felt by reducing muscle tension.
Several daily sessions of at least 20 minutes are necessary in order to effectively relieve muscle pain.
Electrostimulation to fight against cellulite on the buttocks
Cellulite is a skin condition that is very often found on the buttocks. Although electrostimulation does not completely eliminate the presence of cellulite, it does help reduce it.
Regular use of an electrostimulation device on the buttocks acts in two ways on cellulite:
● Stimulation of blood circulation to reduce water retention and promote the elimination of toxins leading to tissue congestion,
● An improvement in the tone of muscle mass in order to reduce the amount of fat and make the skin smoother.
These two actions of electrostimulation reduce the degree of visibility of cellulite by making the skin of the buttocks firmer.
Note that it is necessary to have a healthy lifestyle and to be sufficiently hydrated in order to obtain convincing results.
How to use an electrostimulation device on the buttocks?
Whatever the muscle targeted, it is recommended that you perform electrostimulation sessions for at least 20 minutes, 3 to 5 times a week. A certain regularity is indeed required in order to observe results.
Electrostimulation is most effective when used in addition to regular sports practice. By combining physical exercises with electrostimulation sessions, the muscles are worked much harder.
In order to obtain firm and rounded buttocks more quickly, there are several exercises that you can do:
● Front lunge,
● Gluteal lift-up,
The different types of devices used to strengthen the buttocks
Several types of electrostimulation devices can target the buttocks:
● Electrostimulation shorts,
● Electrostimulation belt,
● Electrostimulation device in the form of electrodes connected to a small box.
The shorts and the electrostimulation belt are effective for working the glutes. However, the main disadvantage of these devices is that they cannot target other areas of the body, such as the pectorals, shoulders, arms or even the legs.
Electrostimulation devices in the form of electrodes connected to a compact box, such as Bluetens devices, are more versatile as they allow many muscles to be worked, thanks to specific programs provided for each part of the body.
