For example; which is the best training specific for each person? It is like shoes, thebest shoe is the one that fits comfortably to you. With training it is similar, the besttraining is the one that is adapted to each person.


Regarding health, the stage is very clear. It is known that sedentary lifestyle is thebiggest factor related to chronic not communicable diseases, such as heart failure, high blood pressure. Obesity, diabetes, etc. 9 out 10 people have sedentary lifestyles, according to the World Health Organization.


But not everything is so bad. In time, people have started to practice more sports. 10years ago, well known “runners” almost didn’t exist. Nowadays street are filled with their massive events. Before, gym chains didn’t exist, now they are everywhere, in small or big cities. Every year new training disciplines appear; Zumba, Tae Bo, etc.


The idea is to always add, and today the EMS trainings are here to stay in the
worldwide training map. From Spain, where the most important centers are located, ithas spread massively to the rest of the world.


What is the Corenstein system of Active Electrical Stimulation?


It is a very modern training system of short duration, only 20 minutes, very effective,since over 300 muscles are activated simultaneously. It improves the muscle resistancetones, increases musculature, enhances aerobic and anaerobic resistance, incrementsstrength, etc. It has very little side effects, with a low number of injuries. It is directed to people over 16 years old, without age limit.


The type of training depends on the objective set and adapted to each person, but there is something fundamental: to change the body, mind has to change. Therefore, besides training, eating habits, and behaviors that favor healthy life; such as avoiding excesses and sleeping well to recover must be combined.


The ideal group to practice EMS, if it is not good to generalize, extends from 16 years old until the person has control of movements.

EMS training routines should be respected:


  •  Charge principle, volume and intensity. Specifically, the number of series and repetitions and the type and charge of exercise
  •  Variability. Routines must integrate exercises that vary the muscle groups andincorporate circuit routines, stations, directed exercises, etc.
  •  All training plan must have a clear work goal
  •  Specificity. Trainings are specific and designed specially for each person.
  •  Progression in including exercises, which means, that the degrees of difficulty in the execution of exercises must increase. For example, squats without dumbbell, squats with dumbbell
  • Transition and recovery, less intensity exercises must be included after intense exercises.
  • Individuality, adapt the training to personal interests and needs.
  •  Combine isotonic exercises (dynamic), isometric (static) and muscle transference (jumping, etc)
  • Motivation and creativity, making emphasis as much in exercises as in the materials used (elastics, dumbbells, canes, balls, etc)
  •  At the end, do a Lexibility 3 minutes routine without electrical stimulationsCorenstein System of Active Functional Electrical Stimulation: The base of the Corenstein training system with EMS is focused in functional exercises. Incorporating body movement, in a chained way, from feet to arms and vice versa, from one side of the body to the other, adding traction movements and impact.


Movements that combine isotonic contractions with a lot of movement, static or isometric, muscle transference movements, plyometric exercises or jumping.

It combines aerobic and anaerobic systems, increases the ability of resistance to physical effort.


It is divided in 4 work programs:


  1. Abdominal area – Combines active and passive exercises
  2. General localized – Combines active, passive exercises and stationary work
  3. General cardio – Combines active, passive exercises, transference work and jumping
  4. Lower area and posterior zone – Combines active, passive exercises and assisted.


Type of exercises: squats, lunges, lunges in one leg, planking, abdominal supports, etc. This systems bases its principle in the Lexibility of its structure. In the case of beginners it is important to understand that work programs should be planned with 1 or 2 series and repetitions adapted to their


Characteristics of the Corenstein system:


  •  Number of series: varies between 1 and 3
  •  Number of repetitions: varies between 8 and 12
  •  Type of contraction: active and passive
  •  The type of contraction is recommended to start with active movement, increasing little by little the isometric,transference and jumping work.
  •  To conclude, the training is adapted to the capacities of each person, increasing or reducing the charge, impact, speed and number of exercises
