What is EMS? Emergency medical services?


That’s what it means here anyways…

If you can expand on what EMS means in training and I’m sure someone can help.

Like the guys have said, we have no idea what you mean by EMS. Electrical Muscle Stimulation, maybe? You didn’t mention it anywhere in the post, so we’re gonna need more info before giving advice.

Also not really sure what you mean by “classical weightlifting”. Powerlifting? Olympic weightlifting? Help us out, man.

Electrical muscle stimulation could be what he’s referring. I believe the Russians experimented with this years ago. There’s actually a default setting in most e stim machines called Russian stim and it’s pretty intense to use.

If that’s what he’s talking about, I’ve used it with stroke rehab but don’t know how ppl use it directly in training for weight lifting.

What does that mean? Is that a program or something?

“EMS” stands for “Erection Management Software”. From this, it’s clear what OP is trying to communicate.
