CrossFit Games 2017

2017 was the first year the CrossFit Games was held in Madison. It proved to be an exciting location, packed full of new events for the athletes.

Compex Sport Elite Electric Muscle Stimulator: Shockingly Easy To Use

Check out the review by Steven John from The Manual.  Please note that Steven was provided a device to keep by Compex at no charge, and his opinions in the review are his own. Go to https://www.themanual.com/culture/compex-sport-estim/ to see this article and more.

First of all, forgive the “shockingly easy to use” pun. I went for the low-hanging fruit, yes; this device does not actually shock you, no. Rather the Compex Sport Elite uses electrostimulation (estim) — brief pulses of electricity transmitted through the muscles via electrode, e.g. — to aid with everything from improved blood circulation to increased muscle mass to faster post-exercise recovery. And yes, this Electric Muscle Stimulator really can do all that, and more. You just have to spend the time to learn to use it properly, and you have to get over the fact that using the Compex EMS is kind of really strange at first.

Fight Muscle Fatigue with the Latest Compex® Lineup

It’s finally here! On May 8th, Compex® will be releasing a lineup of new colors across all wired devices. The devices themselves will be identical with the best of Swiss technology, but now you’ll have more options in shopping for your first or upgraded device.

The new colors will be:

Recon Green

Tactical White

Seal Black

 Compex  devices are beneficial for the occasional to elite competitor seeking a performance edge or for an exercise hobbyist looking to relieve aches or tightness associated with physical activity as well as to train for those activities.

NMES devices use electric waves to send signals to the muscle to cause an involuntary contraction. Dependent on the frequency of the wave, this effect can be used to help recover or even train the muscle to suit a variety of athletic needs. In Compex devices, preset programs have been engineered to optimize the efficiency of these desired effects with programs ranging from Massage to Active Recovery and Explosive Strength*, among others.

Not interested in fancy colors, but still want a great device at discounted cost? Keep your eye out for clearance discounts on our website leading up to and at the release of the newest devices. The originals will not be reproduced again so get them while they’re in!

*Note: not all devices come with all of the colors, see the comparison chart  for more information.
