In the study, it is aimed to determine whether there is any improvement in the physical performance development of the individuals, who have made exercise with OPT MODEL -EMS mix. and traditional PT models within the 20-week exercise program. In the study, pre-test, posttest, experimental screening by pattern methods are used. Study groups consist of 30 individuals, who are healthy and voluntary, continuing the fitness centers in Netherlands (OPT-EMS; n=30) and in Turkey (PT; n=30). After the data obtained is entered in computer environment; the arithmetic means (X), standard deviations (ss) of the research groups are taken and the Paired Samples t-test is applied for the differences between the pre-test and posttest. Significance level is examined at p<0.05 level. When the study findings are examined, statistically significant differences are observed in the push-up, squat, crunch, plank and Max Vo2 performance measurements of the participants in 20-week OPT-EMS group (p<0.05). Also, a statistically significant difference is found in the left hand grip and plant test performance measurements of the participants in 20-week PT group (p<0.05). As a result, the OPT model, which is an innovative approach and has five different training phases, and the continuation of training with EMG for a certain period of time can be said to contribute to the physical performance. In addition, in case PT training content is prepared according to the individual, it is considered that it will contribute to physical performance.
