Compex Sport Elite – Electronic
The Compex Sport Elite Electric Muscle Stimulator is a popular and very effective EMS machine, which operates just like a portable TENS machine. The controller sends a series of electrical pulses to the electrodes on the skin, and these pulses alternatively contract and relax the muscles. The benefit with an EMS machine is that you can speed up all of your normal preparations for a workout session, such as faster warm ups, faster cool down, and faster recovery.
If you really want to get the full benefit of muscle strength and conditioning, then you can use the Compex Sport Elite programme settings for increasing muscle bulk and muscle tone as well. The really cool benefit of an EMS machine, is that you can build muscle and strength in between physical workouts, without actually getting tired or suffering any muscle fatigue. In fact, you muscles will feel completely refreshed and energized, more like a massage than a workout!
How does Electric Muscle Stimulation work?
A Compex Sport Elite EMS machine is best used after intense training sessions, as well as in between training sessions to promote faster recovery, and to reduce the likelihood of muscle damage and injury. The EMS machine works by inducing a series of impulses through the electrodes on your skin, which pass safely into the muscle, causing the muscle to twitch in sync with the pattern of the impulse signal.
The Compex Sport Elite has 9 different programmes which are designed to improve your overall performance. Some programme settings are designed for gentle pulsations which increase the blood flow, and warm up the muscle. Some programs are designed to get rid of the waste products such as lactic and other metabolites left behind in the muscles after exercise. Other programmes are designed for maximum muscle contractions which give the muscles a workout similar to weightlifting, without the harsh impacts on the joints and tendons and other vulnerable areas.
