What is Muscle Stimulation? How does it Work?
Simply put, Muscle Stim 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 our 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.
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.
To add to that, Compex is based on Swiss technology and has been in the business of Muscle Stimulation since 1986. Over this time, we have established ourselves as market leaders, setting the benchmark for reliability and excellence in our field.
Compex devices are equipped with the technology to produce a stable and controlled waveform through a constant current generator, offering its users the ideal current and optimal impulses regardless of the variations in skin resistance.
Warm up your muscles with pre-designed programs such as: Potentiation, Warm-Up and Capillarisation. These get the blood flowing through the muscle and ready it for action, so you can make your time in the gym more efficient.
Warming up the muscle before a workout has been shown to help reduce the risk of injury during your workout and activities.
