Compex Meets... OCR Athlete Tony Voisin
Tony Voisin: Athlete OCR
Fitness instructor and coach
2017 Vice World Champion OCR
Compex: Hi Tony, it's a pleasure to meet with you - please could you tell us a little bit about yourself? How you got into the sport and your relationship with Compex?
Tony Voisin: Okay, so I practice the obstacle course. Sport for me is a lifestyle and I think that today it is the best medicine to guard against the bad things in the world. I've been affiliated to the Compex France team since 2018.
Compex: Great, and which Compex device do you use? How did you hear about Compex and what programmes do you use?
Tony: Currently I am using the Compex SP8 Wod Edition. I discovered Compex in 2016, when I visited the Compex booth at the Body Fitness Show. It was explained to me that this one device could help me recover from competition, and also to participate in my physical preparation and training.
I started to learn a little more and I acquired a Compex device. I first started using the recovery program, and I immediately felt the effects. I also used the program Heavy Legs because I have a problem with blood circulation. Then I integrated the capillarisation and I felt real benefits before my races.
Compex: When and how did you really start integrating Compex into your physical training?
Tony: I started to integrate Compex in my physical training in 2018, in view of the world championships. I first did a 5 week cycle on strength, twice a week, in addition to strength training in bodybuilding and a session in dynamics, that is to say box jumps or heels-buttocks.
Then, I followed up with a cycle of 5 weeks in resistance. I took a week of recovery between the two cycles to recover.
Compex: What did you get out of it?
I feel that in the ribs, which was my weak point, I have more power and I can better resist lactates. I really progressed, my legs are much lighter too!
Compex: The final word?
I will end with a phrase that is a bit my leitmotif: Get up with determination to lie down with satisfaction.
