Staying Consistent in 2024 with Compex

Another spring, another look at how far we have come with our new years goals over the past three months. What have we been doing different this year, or have we already lost track of our resolutions? Our team at Compex is all about helping you prep and repair your body for its best physical state. We took a look at what habits are important for a great year. Here are our top tips for the new year, to kick off a healthy, strong you in 2024. 

  1. Create a Morning Routine 

We’ve heard it over and over by now. The experts talk about it. The podcasters swear by it. So just how important is this morning routine?  

A morning routine is essential to start your day, if you want to move forward into a day of intention. Beginning your day with gentle movement and direct sunlight help stabilize your circadian rhythm, which gives you a more alert feeling, and regulates your sleep cycles. For anyone living an active lifestyle—or even those who are sedentary, this may be even more beneficial—muscle stimulators are a great addition to your morning as well, prepping the muscles and aiding in recovery from the day prior. A consistent morning routine will help you uphold your daily routine, including your workout regimen, workday to-dos, muscle recovery, and ultimately reach your personal, professional, and strength-building goals. 

By starting each day with mindful intention, rather than letting the day get the better of you, along with a set list of tasks, you play an active role in reducing stress levels. From here, you can experience smooth transitions throughout your day, which largely impact the success of your workout regimen and muscle recovery. 

  1. Establish Your Workout Regimen 

As you step into your new year and go after your goals, you’re likely considering how to establish healthy workout habits. Compex® muscle stimulators are here to help you do just that. If you're looking to build strength, muscle stimulators are an excellent workout tool. They offer a wide range of benefits, including increasing explosive strength while reducing muscle and joint damage. Beyond this, they aid in avoiding training fatigue and quicker recovery. Compex muscle stimulators can play an effective role in helping you develop your workout regimen and set realistic goals for yourself. With the right approach, muscle stimulators can provide valuable assistance in reaching those goals.  

Compex muscle stimulators add a level of efficiency and efficacy to your workouts that take you further than just bodyweight or heavy weights. They prepare muscle fibers prior to training, and maximize the muscle fibers while active. Compex places an increased strain on muscles, which fires up your workouts by increasing strength, muscle mass and explosiveness in less time. Common lifts in the gym setting include dumbbells, kettlebells, and barbells. Just as these weights elevate your workout beyond bodyweight, Compex elevates you beyond weighted strength training. Muscle stimulators simulate increasing the load placed on the muscle groups, without requiring heavy weights. So you can train harder, with less damage and fatigue. 

To use muscle stimulators effectively for strength training, it's important to create a workout routine that fits your specific goals. Be sure to include a mix of both cardio and strength-training exercises, and make sure that you allocate enough time for recovery between workout sessions. Additionally, it's important to keep track of your progress over time so you can adjust your workout plan accordingly.  

3. Commit to Muscle Recovery 

Finally, to excel in your new year and experience your best physical state, don't forget the importance of muscle recovery. After each workout session, be sure to take time for your muscles to rest and recover. This can include stretching, foam rolling, and most definitely using muscle stimulators on your days off. Taking the time for muscle recovery is essential to ensure that you get the most out of your training.  

When you use electric muscle stimulators, the electric impulses cause muscles to contract, which incurs a number of positive things. Your unused or weaker muscle groups grow in strength when they are contracted and flexed, which puts off the muscle atrophy process. Muscle contraction increases blood flow to the tissue area involved, which contributes to repairing the muscle groups. When you teach muscle fibers to respond to certain patterns, the fibers build strength. So while the sticky pads of muscle stimulators are placed in the targeted areas, they aid not only in recovery—they also strengthen and rebuild the muscle groups. With these tips in mind, you can use muscle stimulators as part of a successful workout plan and reach your strength-building goals. 

The new years just keep rolling in, and the recommendations and health ideas aren’t slowing down any time soon. When you apply these three straightforward tips, take note of the physical benefits that you experience. When you integrate Compex muscle stimulators into your routine, you elevate your year that much more. So let’s make 2024 a year to remember.
