What Is Electric Muscle Stimulation?

Simply put, electric muscle stimulation trains your muscles in a way that traditional workouts alone can't. A "best kept secret" that many elite athletes and fitness enthusiasts use to enhance their workouts and training programs, electric muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electric stimulation, muscle stim or e-stim, is delivered through a small device that sends electronic pulses to your nerve fibers in order to create involuntary muscle contractions.

When you add Compex electric muscle stimulation to your training, you maximize your muscular effort by engaging a greater percentage of muscle fibers-both Type 1 slow twitch muscle (endurance) and Type 2 fast twitch muscle (power and explosiveness). That means enhanced efficiency with enhanced results.

How Compex Electric Muscle Stimulation Works

Super charge your workouts without spending more time in the gym or on the track. An ethical and non-invasive approach, Compex offers unique programs for your key performance areas, activating up to 100 percent of your muscle fibers for:

Dynamic Warm-ups

Efficiently warm up your muscles with pre-designed programs so you can make your time in the gym more efficient.

Performance-boosting Workouts

Your muscles don't know if you're using EMS or lifting weights. When you do both, Compex recruits your muscle fibers to help take your workouts to the next level.

Quick, Painless Recovery

Compex helps to bring fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to facilitate the flushing of toxins, helping you to recover faster.
Simply place the self-adhesive pads on the muscle area you'd like to work. Select your program and let Compex help you get stronger, bigger, leaner and fitter faster than you would with your regular routine.
