The Effect of EMS Exercise on Body Circumstances in Sedentary Women
Today's society is aware of the importance of health. Now many people are competing to do physical activity. This is done to prevent the occurrence of diseases such as diabetes, blockage of blood vessels caused by fat. Currently, there are many types of sports, one of which is Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS). This EMS device uses electrical waves to artificially stimulate muscles. This research method is an experimental pretest-posttest design. The subject is female as many as 10 people. Exercises were carried out using a total body EMS with a duration of 20 minutes for core and 5 minutes for cooling down, performed 2x/week for 6 weeks. The exercise was carried out when the research subjects had enough sleep and the pulse was below 80-110 minutes. The variable in this study was subcutaneous fat with measurements using a simple meter to determine right-left upper arm circumference, abdominal circumference, right and left thigh circumference. The results of this study were that there were significant differences in the circumferences of the upper arms, abdomen and thighs where the results of the SPSS static analysis showed a value of <0.05.
