We studied the effects of self-administered neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on changes in strength, endurance, selected anthropometric measures, and subject's perceived shape and satisfaction of the abdominal wall. Twenty-four adults (experimental group) stimulated their abdominals 5 days per week (20-40 minutes per session) for 8 weeks and refrained from engaging in any additional exercise during the study. A control group (N=16) refrained from exercising the abdominals or engaging…

The Effects of High Intensity Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation on Abdominal Strength and Endurance, Core Strength, Abdominal Girth, and Perceived Body Shape and Satisfaction
TLDR
Results of the current study indicate that high intensity NMES can significantly increase abdominal strength and endurance compared to LI intensity (control) stimulation.
Investigation of aerobic training and electrical motivation impacts on body fat decrease
TLDR
Walking and electrical stimulation similarly caused to decrease in weight, BMI, body fat percentage, and enhance in lean body mass factor (LBM).

Effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation training for abdominal muscles on change of muscle size, strength, endurance and lumbopelvic stability.
TLDR
NMES training could be applied to increase muscle size and muscle performances of abdominal muscles in sports and fitness fields.
Effect of Abdominal Electrical Muscle Stimulation Training With and Without Superimposed Voluntary Muscular Contraction on Lumbopelvic Control.
TLDR
ST could improve lumbopelvic control in the context of athletic training and fitness and was found to be effective in both the single and double-leg lowering tests.
An 8-week randomized controlled trial on the effects of brisk walking, and brisk walking with abdominal electrical muscle stimulation on anthropometric, body composition, and self-perception measures in sedentary adult women
Abstract Objectives The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to examine the effects of an 8-week program of regular brisk walking, regular brisk walking with abdominal electrical muscle
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation and Strength Recovery of Postnatal Diastasis Recti Abdominis Muscles
TLDR
NMES helps reduce DRAM in postnatal women; if combined with abdominal exercises, it can augment the effects and help reduce the effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation.
Comparative Effect of Electrical Muscle Stimulation and Resistance Training on Body Weight and WHR in Overweight People
TLDR
Effects of new and advanced exercise protocols and positive effect of decreasing WHR and body weight may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases in the young population.

Comparison of the effects of electrical stimulation and exercise on abdominal musculature.
TLDR
It was concluded that combined exercise and stimulation may prove to be the most effective method of improving abdominal strength.
Muscular strength development by electrical stimulation in healthy individuals.
TLDR
After adjustments were made for pretest strength results, a one-way analysis of covariance indicated that the posttest isometric strength scores of the three experimental groups differed significantly from those of the control group, and no other posttest differences were found among any of the other training modes.
Electrically elicited minimal visible tetanic contraction and its effect on abdominal muscles strength and endurance
TLDR
It is concluded that prolonged stimulation at minimal intensity can enhance abdominal strength and is well tolerated and may be incorporated clinically when strengthening of the abdominals is indicated.
Effects of electrical muscle stimulation on body composition, muscle strength, and physical appearance.
TLDR
Claims relative to the effectiveness of EMS for the apparently healthy individual are not supported by the findings of this study.
The effects of electrical stimulation of normal quadriceps on strength and girth.
TLDR
The effect of surging faradic electrical stimulation on the strength and girth of normal quadriceps was studied in 18 young adult females and it appears to have little applicability to developing the kind of strength associated with rapid movements.

TLDR
Claims relative to the effectiveness of EMS for the apparently healthy individual are not supported by the findings of this study.

TLDR
The results showed that the maximum voltage tolerance, muscle soreness ratings, and muscle strength gained by the three groups are not significantly (p > .05) different.
Improvement in isometric strength of the quadriceps femoris muscle after training with electrical stimulation.
TLDR
Results showed that although both groups demonstrated increases in isometric strength of their quadriceps femoris muscles, training isometrically with ES produced a significantly greater increase than not training with ES.

TLDR
Electrical stimulation, when used with the specified low-dosage training characteristics of this study, will augment quadriceps femoris muscle torque of men.

TLDR
Consideration of deep muscle activity, provided in this report, is important for choosing the best abdominal exercise, together with activation profiles during lifting, during twisting, and during hip rotation.
