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.

Your normal workouts (voluntary muscle contraction) activate as many as 30% of your muscle fibers. But when you add Compex electric muscle stimulation to your training, you maximize your muscular effort by reaching up to 100% of your muscle fibers-both Type 1 slow twitch muscle (endurance) and Type 2 fast twitch muscle (power and explosiveness). That means maximum efficiency with maximum 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, an FDA-approved device, 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 take your workouts to the next level without doing damage to your body.

Quick, Painless Recovery

Compex brings fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to flush toxins out within 4 to 6 minutes, letting you 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 4 to 5 times faster than you would with your regular routine.
