I just tried 20 minutes of EMS training — here’s what happened to my muscles


As I headed toward my first EMS training session, I wondered what I was walking into. Turns out, I would barely be walking back out, and I’m still not convinced my butt has fully recovered. 

Before I worked in fitness journalism, if someone had asked me to spray myself with water and do a 20-minute workout strapped into a suit emitting electrical impulses to my muscles, I’d have probably passed. But I’ve taken on some curious fitness challenges at Tom’s Guide, so what’s another one? And with celeb endorsements like Usain Bolt, I admit EMS training had piqued my interest.
