Electrostimulation and Muscle Recovery

Accelerate Your Recovery With Muscle Stimulation

Regardless of the sport practiced, muscle recovery is an important process during which muscles resynthesize their energy stores and get rid of accumulated toxins. As you will have understood, recovery is an integral part of the progression phase in a sport. Find out how nutrition and electrostimulation will help you recover faster.

The importance of muscle recovery

If you watch a boxing match, you may have already noticed that some fighters have their legs massaged between rounds, the same goes for football players during halftime. They do this to improve blood circulation and electrical stimulation and percussion massage guns work in the same way.

Some of your capillaries, which are the blood vessels between arteries and veins, are so small that blood cells must travel in a single file. When you exercise, muscle tissue begins to swell, and when this happens, blood flow to these tiny blood vessels can be cut off.

These effects on blood flow can reduce recovery between workouts. Metabolic waste can back up into the muscles and valuable nutrients do not reach their destination.

In the case of bodybuilding for example, if your objective is to gain muscle mass, it is during the next 48-72 hours that your muscles fill up with nutrients, recover and hypertrophy (gain mass).

Muscle recovery is an integral part of sports training, it is important not to neglect this phase. Here are the direct risks linked to poor recovery:

  • Weakened immune system
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Risks of injury
  • Water retention
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue

Rewarding your efforts by recovering correctly will help you perform better, and therefore progress more quickly . To achieve this, muscle stimulation is very popular among athletes in order to reduce the time necessary for optimal recovery. We'll talk about this in more detail below.

Does electrostimulation increase muscle recovery?

Electrical muscle stimulation is not a new science. Doctors and physical therapists have used electrical muscle stimulation, also known as EMS or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), to treat Olympic athletes and top fitness professionals for decades.

If you're a fitness enthusiast and want to build muscle , you've probably heard of electrical muscle stimulation. Perhaps you have already purchased one of our muscle stimulators? 😉

Electrostimulation improves blood flow through muscle activation. Previously The major problem is that there is great variability between people regarding the exact level of electrical stimulation required. It is possible to make it too intense , creating either pain or additional muscle fatigue.

To solve this problem, we offer new generation stimulators integrating a specific program for muscle recovery! You can combine self-massage with muscle stimulation to oxygenate the muscles, reduce pain and eliminate toxins, including lactic acid. Recovery time between exercises as well as after training will be reduced.

This practice is increasingly popular with athletes and individuals of all levels for its many benefits. From warming up to intensifying your workouts for faster progress, while speeding up post-workout recovery. Electrical muscle stimulation has become essential .

Nutrition and stimulation for effective muscle recovery

At Élec-Tonic, we take a holistic approach to health and fitness performance and recovery. Get the most out of electrical muscle stimulation by caring for your body from the inside out. It's important to prioritize healthy nutrition throughout your fitness journey.

Eating the right foods and maintaining proper hydration contributes to optimal recovery. Smart nutrition, combined with the technology of our stimulators, is a recipe for success in complete and rapid recovery.

Our team of fitness professionals recommends that your pre-workout meal be 75% carbohydrates and 25% protein for bodybuilding and muscle-building workouts.

The exact amount of protein you should eat varies depending on your weight and the intensity and duration of your workout. Eat this meal between one and two hours before your strength training session.

On cardio days, carbs will make up most or all of your pre-workout meal. Your body quickly metabolizes carbs into glucose (which equals energy!), so you'll want to eat this meal between 30 and 60 minutes before your cardio workout. To prevent fatigue and maintain your energy, add protein and fiber during rest periods throughout your workout, maltodextrin is also a great supplement to consume during your fitness session.

Optimal pre-workout meals include egg whites, spinach, apples, mangoes, whole grain toast, whole or mixed grain hot cereal, flax seeds, Greek yogurt and protein shakes .

Hydration is the most important goal after training. Experts agree that it's best to consume a high-protein meal or shake of protein powder within two hours of a workout to help your body build lean muscle.

If you've completed an intense cardio workout, you'll need to replenish your energy with a high-carb snack. Protein and carbohydrates combined are needed after training to help repair muscles and prevent soreness.

You can speed up your recovery by using muscle stimulation or a massage gun after or during training.

The scientifically proven EMS technology in our devices gently contracts and massages your muscles to promote blood circulation, oxygenate the muscles and remove lactic acid from your muscles so they can recover as quickly as possible.

Ready to progress faster? Previously reserved for professionals, this cutting-edge technology is now available to the general public, take advantage of it! 🙂
