Let’s be honest. Who has the patience to do more than a five to ten-minute warm-up and cooldown with every workout session? I didn't even do this when I was training for a marathon earlier this year.
But I had help. Aside from lifestyle modifications, I had BEMER, a very cool medical device. I have to confess that I was very skeptical at first. How can adding an eight-minute BEMER PEMF session before and after your workouts help with my performance? I am not an elite athlete. Just a regular person trying to do something to check my bucket list!
According to the manufacturer of BEMER, here are the five ways BEMER’s targeted PEMF signal can improve your workout routine and improve your potential:
1. More Oxygen + More Nutrients = Better Physical Performance
For this equation to work, your body needs one thing: better circulation.
Many of the minor aches and injuries that plague our bodies are due to poor local blood flow. When your muscles don’t get the oxygen and nutrients they need, it impairs their ability to heal, strengthen, and perform.
It’s like trying to use a hose with a kink in it. The water still comes out, but only a fraction of it.
One of the most effective ways to improve your local blood flow and optimize muscular activation before a workout is through BEMER’s PEMF technology. BEMER’s targeted PEMF signal stimulates metabolic activity at the cellular level, increasing local circulation and un-kinking the hose to flood your muscles with vital oxygen and nutrients.
With the fuel they need, your muscles can more effectively do what they do naturally: produce energy.
2. Increased Energy & Endurance
You can think of a PEMF session as a scoop of pre-workout for your muscles.
When increased local blood flow allows your muscle cells to produce more energy, you’ll get a boost of energy too. You may find that you can work harder for longer, and it’ll take more time for your muscles to fatigue during your workouts.
More energy and endurance means more distance, more focus, and better results.
3. Enhanced Waste Removal
How often do stiff, sore, achy muscles keep you from performing at your best?
Whether you’re a competitive or recreational athlete, the answer is probably more often than you’d like to admit. You might even struggle with frequent muscle cramps or spasms.
As you may know, working out creates micro-tears in your muscle fibers. As a result, your body attempts to heal and protect those areas from further damage, which in combination with lactic acid production, is the reason for stiff, achy muscles.
And that’s where BEMER comes in.
When you recover with BEMER, your muscle cells become incredibly efficient at filtering out cellular waste products that cause stiffness, soreness, and cramps. One thing I noticed during my training is that I recovered much quicker than before at long distances.
4. Sleep Management
If fitness and nutrition were a puzzle, sleep would be one of the biggest pieces. I insist that all my clients must have 7-8 hours of quality sleep every night, and I do my best to follow my own rules.
The Sports Health journal reported that improper sleep could lead to significant changes in mood, hormonal function, and immune response.
In short, sleep is crucial. Without adequate rest, your body won’t be able to fully repair the damage done to your muscles during training. So, how can BEMER help?
Nowadays, electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are everywhere. From WiFi to power lines to radio waves, we’re constantly exposed to these signals every day.
While these signals help us operate our phones and computers, other signals can help us manage our sleep.
When you use BEMER as part of your post-workout routine, the targeted PEMF signal helps your body get the healthy, restorative sleep it needs to repair your muscles and have you performing better than ever.
5. Stress Reduction and Relaxation
When your muscles are stressed, you’re stressed. When they’re relaxed, you’re relaxed.
The improved oxygenation and nutrient delivery that BEMER provides helps relieve muscular stress induced by hard workouts, leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed. I am totally convinced that I felt less stressed, as if I just came out of meditation after each BEMER session. If you’ve ever felt burnt out or anxious as a result of your workout, it might be time to re-evaluate how you recover.
Of course, reduced stress levels will help you keep your head in the game and stay laser-focused on your goals.
Looking at endorsements by professional athletes, I am pretty certain that BEMER works. And judging from how I felt after the marathon, which was no different than running a 10K, I am convinced BEMER played a significant part in my journey.
