Benefits of Muscle Stimulation
Optimize your training from start to finish!
From warming up, working out and cooling down with proper recovery, Compex electric muscle simulators can help accelerate your fitness results. With pre-designed programs, you can activate hard-to-reach muscle fibers quicker than your regular training regimen with less stress on your body. Providing major benefits across all areas of performance, whether you're a newbie or elite, here's the down and dirty of what Compex muscle stimulation can deliver.
Simply put, electric muscle stimulation trains your muscles in a way that traditional workouts alone cannot. It is a "best kept secret" elite athletes and fitness enthusiasts use to enhance their workouts and training programs. Electric muscle stimulation (EMS) – also known as neuromuscular electric stimulation (NMES), muscle stim or e-stim – sends electronic pulses to your motor nerves in order to create muscle contractions.
When Compex electric muscle stimulation is added to your training, it helps maximize your muscular effort by engaging a greater percentage of muscle fibers. Compex's programs can target Type 1 slow twitch muscle fibers which impact endurance as well as Type 2 (a & b) fast twitch muscle fibers which impact power and explosiveness. Compex can help your training efficiency allowing for enhanced fitness results. Once the training is over, let Compex flush out the lactic acid with one of the Recovery programs.
Keep in mind, not all muscle stim devices are created equal! In order to activate certain muscle fibers, your device has to have enough power to do so. For example, in order to train those Type 2 b muscle fibers, you need to be hitting 95 hertz or higher.
