Elite Athletes Use Active Recovery Muscle Stimulator to Prevent Muscle Soreness After Exercise
The Active Recovery program uses Compex Sport electrostimulation therapy to help athletes’ muscles recover faster
United States, June 25, 2009 - Muscle soreness plagues almost every athlete after an intense workout and can sideline an athlete for days after a competition. Now elite athletes like Mark Sanchez, New York Jets quarterback, are preventing muscle soreness after exercise with the Active Recovery® program in the Compex Sport muscle stimulator.
“I’ve never felt better,” stated Sanchez in an interview with ESPN, which he attributes to using the Active Recovery® Program provided by his Compex Sport device after exercise. “It flushes out the lactic acid,” Sanchez commented. “It’s preventative medicine like icing your shoulder”.
The Active Recovery® program uses electrostimulation therapy to eliminate lactic acid, increase blood flow, and stimulate endorphin production after exercise. It is this combination that reduces muscle soreness, making the muscle relaxed and ready to work again.
“Active Recovery is the Compex program sports athletes like Sanchez and tri-athlete world champ Simon Lessing are turning to after exercise,” said Greg Houlgate, director of sales for Compex. “The results they [athletes] are getting are demonstrative and they can optimize their training to suit their sport specific goals.”
In addition to providing Active Recovery®, Compex muscle stimulators enable sports athletes to improve muscle performance through targeted electrostimulation therapy programs. It has been clinically proven that athletes using Compex can experience a 5 – 15% increase in strength by training with a Compex muscle stimulator.
Developed by the worldwide leader in electrostimulation therapy, Compex muscle stimulators are cleared by the FDA for sale in the United States without a prescription. Visit www.ShopCompex.com for more information about using Compex Active Recovery® after exercise.
