WHAT IS MUSCLE STIMULATION? HOW DOES IT WORK?
Simply put, muscle stimulation trains your muscles in a way that traditional workouts alone cannot. It is a “best kept secret” that many elite athletes and fitness enthusiasts use to enhance their workouts, training and recovery programs. For more about that, visit the Training with Compex page.
Muscle Stim is not a miraculous technique, it is very simple and precisely reproduces the processes that occur when our brain orders muscles to contract by sending electric pulses to your motor nerves in order to create muscle contractions. It respects how our body works.
WHY USE COMPEX MUSCLE STIM?
When Compex Muscle Stim is added to your training, it helps maximise your muscular effort by engaging a greater percentage of muscle fibers. Compex can target both Type 1 slow twitch muscle fibers which impact endurance and Type 2 fast twitch muscle fibers with impact power and explosiveness. Compex can help your training efficiency allowing for enhanced fitness results.
Compex has multiple post-workout programmes in the Recovery and Pain Management category to jump start and accelerate your recovery phase.
The different programs are designed to bring fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to facilitate the flush of toxins, helping you to recover faster.
Simply place the self-adhesive pads on the muscle area you’d like to target. Select your program and let Compex help you get stronger and fitter faster than you would with your regular routine.
BOOST WORKOUT PERFORMANCE
Your muscles don’t know if you’re using Muscle Stim or lifting weights, however the non-weight bearing element of Muscle Stim means your joints will thank you.
The programmes under the Conditioning and Fitness categories of a Compex device allow you to work on building muscle without lifting weights and using only body weight and Muscle Stim to achieve your goals.
