So you're training for a marathon, or the Iron Man, or the Crossfit Games. Well, whatever you're training for, one of the best ways to get your optimal performance lies in how fast you can recover. We all know that a good rest and quality sleep (or maybe an ice bath) can get us back to square one. But now there's an even faster way, and it involves something quite electrifying.
Intrigued? Well, you should be!
An awesome way to speed up the recovery process is to use a device that utilizes electricity to stimulate muscles. So I'd like to introduce Marc Pro.
The bare bones of this machine, which is slightly larger than an iPhone, is that it delivers electrical stimulation (i.e electrical pulses) to the muscles that you target through replaceable electrode pads. You can control the intensity.
During your session, the Marc Pro generates muscle contractions that “improve the transport of nourishment and waste, speed recovery, and get you back to 100% quickly”. I know what you're thinking, “I've seen this type of thing on the home shopping network before”. I'm gonna have to say you're wrong.

The Marc Pro doesn't make outrageous claims to mold you into a bodybuilder while you chill on the sofa drinking beer. It is not a TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). It's a recovery tool — it repairs muscle; it doesn't work your muscles out.
The Marc Pro doesn't send direct current pulses to the nerves (like TENS), it rather sends non-fatiguing stimulation that opens blood vessels. Basically, your muscles need to contract to move lymphatic fluid in and out, as well as blood and nutrients during recovery. The Marc Pro, therefore, provides more nutrients and gets rid of more waste from fatigued muscles, so it really aims to accelerate the recovery and conditioning process. In fact, if you use it regularly, the Marc Pro has shown to actually improve vascular capacity. This means you can last longer and push harder when training.
You can use it for 60-minute sessions every day, and it can be used wherever you are. It's non-invasive, so it can even be used at work after your lunchtime WOD.
