Doing two hours of training in 20 minutes is real!
Tom Holland is familiar to many movie lovers. The actor gained the most popularity as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And recently he found a new way of training - stimulating muscles using a low-level electrical current. Just 20 minutes of this therapy replaces a couple of hours of work in the gym.
What is this system?
The miracle of technology is called EMS, or Electronic Muscle Stimulation. It has existed as a form of physical therapy for several centuries. The system sends low-level electrical currents through the body to stimulate and strengthen muscles.
How did Spider-Man end up here?
Holland heard about the technique from a friend of Bobby's, who was on the set with him. But Tom does not forget about the usual workouts for all of us, for example, about gymnastics.
“This is 20 minutes of absolute hell,” the actor laughs, talking about muscle stimulation. The person is strapped into a suit that covers all major muscle groups. In addition, the machine has the ability to focus on specific areas of the body, contracting muscles 80 times per second.
How is EMS training going?
The training uses mihbodytec equipment. There is also a special program in which you follow the avatar on the screen. It depicts a consultant supervising the correct execution of tasks. After his first training sessions, Tom Holland, for example, literally couldn't walk. A few days later, he was already fully recovered. But coaches still recommend not to overdo it in training.
When can I see the results?
Holland has always been a pretty skinny guy. The question was more about toning. The main goal is to present the actor in costumes. Do not trust those who say that the result can be achieved very quickly. The real result will come in about 12 weeks, while, of course, it is worth eating right, and not just hoping for a miracle workout. Clients who adhered to all the rules saw unrealistic training outcomes.
