In this blog post, we will delve into the importance of nutrition in conjunction with EMS training and provide practical guidance on optimising dietary choices to support performance, muscle recovery, and overall fitness goals.

By combining Body20’s personalised nutrition guidance, including access to expert Nutrition Doctors, with EMS training, you can enhance your training outcomes and unlock your full potential.

I. Understanding the Role of Nutrition in EMS Training

The science behind EMS training:

  • EMS (Electro Muscle Stimulation) training stimulates multiple muscle groups simultaneously, intensifying the workout and maximising results.
  • Adequate nutrition is essential to provide the necessary energy and nutrients for optimal muscle performance and recovery.

Benefits of proper nutrition:

  • Enhances muscle development and strength.
  • Boosts energy levels and endurance.
  • Accelerates post-workout recovery.
  • Supports overall health and wellbeing.

II. Tailoring Nutrition to Complement EMS Training

Personalised nutrition guidance from Body20 and the Nutrition Doctors:

  • Body20 understands the importance of individualised nutrition recommendations for optimal results.
  • Body20 Members have the advantage of accessing personalised eating plans and nutritional guidance from the Nutrition Doctors, who are experts in the field.
  • The Nutrition Doctors work closely with Body20 trainers to develop nutrition strategies that complement EMS training and support individual goals.

Macronutrients and their importance:

  • Protein: Essential for muscle repair and growth. Consume lean sources such as chicken, fish, tofu, or legumes.
  • Carbohydrates: Provide energy for intense workouts. Opt for complex carbs like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Healthy fats: Aid in hormone production and nutrient absorption. Include sources like avocados, nuts, and olive oil.


  • Proper hydration is crucial for optimal performance. Aim to drink 1 – 1.5l of water per 30kg body weight throughout the day and especially before and after training sessions.

Pre-workout nutrition:

  • With the guidance of the Nutrition Doctors, Body20 Members can ensure they consume a balanced meal or snack 1-2 hours before EMS training.
  • The Nutrition Doctors help individuals choose the right combination of carbohydrates and protein to fuel their muscles and provide sustained energy.

Post-workout nutrition:

  • The Nutrition Doctors recommend Body20 Members consume a protein-rich meal or snack within 30 minutes of completing their EMS training session.
  • This promotes muscle recovery and helps replenish glycogen stores.

III. Tips for Making Informed Nutritional Choices

Whole, unprocessed foods:

  • The Nutrition Doctors emphasise the importance of choosing nutrient-dense foods that provide a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
  • Body20 Members receive guidance on incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats into their diets.

Portion control:
