Whole-body electromyostiulation (WB-EMS) has experienced a boom in recent years, even though its eﬀectiveness is controversial. A sedentary lifestyle is deeply rooted in the European population, mainly in the elderly. This experimental study analyzed the impact of WB-EMS on the physical ﬁtness of postmenopausal
women. Thirty-four healthy sedentary women between 55 and 69 years followed an experimental design pre–post-test. Both groups conducted a ten-week aerobic and strength training program. The experimental group overlaid the WB-EMS during exercise. At the end of the intervention, both groups improved upper and lower body strength, lower extremity ﬂexibility, agility, and speed levels (pBonferroni < 0.05). Signiﬁcant interactions were observed at upper andlowerbodystrength,agility,speed,andcardiovascularendurance(p < 0.05). TheWB-EMSgroup scored better agility than the control group at the end of the intervention (pBonferroni < 0.05) and was the only group that improved cardiovascular endurance. WB-EMS shows a favorable isolate eﬀect on the development of dynamic leg strength, agility, and cardiovascular endurance but did not in dynamic arm strength, gait speed, balance, or ﬂexibility of postmenopausal women.
