Take your recovery to the next level.
In the world of exercise physiology and sport science, recovery is rapidly going mainstream as one of the most salient aspects of athletic training and performance discussions. While athletic trainers have long utilized the benefits of electrical stimuli for muscle recovery and injury rehabilitation, that technology wasn't easily accessible to the general population until Marc Pro stepped in to bring it to your doorstep with the Marc Pro Plus Device. This device uses electrical stimuli to shorten recovery time and to increase the effectiveness of your training, with added functionality compared to the Marc Pro for temporary pain relief from sore muscles. It might be a little intimidating to think about sticking electrodes to your body, but the research and results speak for themselves.
The Marc Pro Plus works its magic by sending electrical pulses via four electrodes that you place at the muscle groupings of your choosing. These electrodes connect to the Marc Pro Plus main unit in pairs, two and two. At the interface of the machine, you're able to target these electrodes with two independent dials that control the output of the signal. So, if your right quad needs a little more juice than, say, your calf, you're able to send a stronger signal as necessary.
If you're wondering what the point of all this is, the usefulness of the Marc Pro is actually hidden in its name — "MARC" is actually an acronym for "Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade." The electrical impulses create non-fatiguing muscle contractions that stimulate the production and activation of Nitric Oxide in the body. Essentially, this chemical dilates the blood vessels, which, in turn, leads to an increase in oxygenated blood flow and nutrients to the desired area. As a result, post-exercise residual waste and deoxygenated blood is "flushed" from the fatigue areas. By achieving this effect without any added fatigue, the recovery process is heavily accelerated.
In a nutshell, accelerated recovery leads to a decrease in downtime between your workouts, so your higher intensity training days are able to be closer together, more targeted, and increasingly purposeful. When the MARC process occurs regularly, Marc Pro's research has shown that a process called angiogenesis occurs. Basically, this means that your muscles develop more capillary blood vessels over time, which equates to the receiving of more oxygenated blood come race day. It also creates more effective natural waste removal come recovery time. Ultimately, according to Marc Pro, your muscles' performance capacity will increase over time. Perform stronger and recover faster — not a bad deal.
The Marc Pro Plus features the unique ability to also attend to sore and aching muscles to facilitate recovery with additional frequencies designed with pain relief in mind. These higher frequency settings aim to calm overexcited nerves and reduce muscle tension, which in turn allows the recovery and conditioning settings to do their work more effectively.
The Marc Pro Plus Device comes packaged with six reusable four-packs of electrodes, an AC charger, a padded carrying case, two lead wires, an instructional booklet, and the main device itself. Please note that this device is not intended to be used for therapy or treatment of medical diseases or medical conditions. We cannot advise strongly enough that you read the accompanying literature before using the Marc Pro Muscle Recovery and Conditioning Device for the first time.
