    Christos Volikakis

     

    Compex: Hi there Christos, great to meet up with you - please tell us a little bit about yourself?

    Christos: Hello to all Compex fans! My name is Christos Volikakis. I live in Greece, I am an Elite Track Cyclist and a proud affiliated athlete of the Compex Greece Team.

     

    Compex: What sport do you do and how did you get into it?

    Christos: I started at a very young age the exciting sport of cycling. My inspiration was my father who is a former Coach of Greek National cycling team, so I literally loved this sport. Success came early in my career regarding several world and European level discriminations.

    In brief,  I was the first ever Greek Cyclist who won a Gold medal in World Championships. I earned 4 medals in World Championships, 9 medals in Europe Championships , 30 medals in World Cups and over 80 Gold Medals in Greece Championships

    I hold 11 national Records and I am in 1st place in world Rankings on the event of Scratch Race , 1st place in omnium Race and 3rd place on Point Race.

    I was voted 2nd best athlete in peoples voting following NBA mvp Giannis Antetokunbo and ahead of Tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas. I was also voted as 4th best Greek athlete on journalist official voting for last season plus the best upcoming talent in my early years.

    I won 2 Gold Medals on the 2nd European Games in Minsk on 2019 and as a result I became the Flag Bearer Of Greece in the closing Ceremony. 

    I am so happy to be an Olympian athlete for 3 consecutive Olympic Games ( Beijing 200813th place – London 2012 9th place, & Rio 2016 13th place.

    For the last 20 years I have been serving with love and excitement this hard and impressive  sport which is so popular worldwide.

     

    Compex: How does Compex Muscle Stim help you to find a competitive edge?

    Christos: My sport and training are very demanding. I count on Compex for my continuous recovery and strength – endurance training to empower my body. Warming up my legs is vital before cycling. I really avoid injuries like this. I use on weekly basis endurance programs while cycling, plus dynamic strength training with extra weight. I always use recovery programs right after the training and I repeat them within the next 3 hours. I believe Compex is essential for all cyclists who want to improve.

     

    Compex: Which program/s do you use?

    Christos: In terms of training I use Endurance and Strength programs in dynamic trainings. I always use Warm Up or Overcompensation programs before trainings. Capillarization is also helping my legs to function better.

    For recovery I use competition / training recovery , Muscle pain and reduce Muscle Soreness  mainly. The end of the day finds me always with some reviving massage on my legs and my back.

     

    Compex: Do you use other Compex products? 

    Christos: Yes, I use Fixx 1.0 massage gun of course. It boosts my pain relief and relaxes my muscles after training. I also use it sometimes for warming up my legs.
