ABSTRACT:
Electrical stimulation can play a useful supplementary role in several aspects of physical conditioning, provided its theoretical foundations and practical scope are clearly understood, and appropriate machines and stimulation protocols are used within the framework of a carefully periodized training program. In applying electrostimulation, one should realize that its effectiveness depends heavily on the electrical waveforms being applied; in particular, their shape, frequency, type of modulation, energy, interpulse interval and duration. In this respect, machine design is determined by the specific physiological model used to describe neuromuscular activity. Traditional machines are based on the action-potential model, whereas newer machines are based on semiconduction or biologically closed electric circuit (BCEC) models. A better understanding of electrostimulation may be achieved if one classifies it into macrostimulation, which acts as a stressor leading to subsequent supercompensation, and microstimulation.
