Get faster muscle recovery with electrical nerve stimulation. The Iron Man Magazine Wireless T.E.N.S. Unit comes with a wireless remote control, 2 small pads, and 1 large pad for easy and convenient placement. The intensity is adjustable and has 6 different program intervals for your personal preference and comfort. Simply put one of the T.E.N.S. Unit’s provided pads directly on the skin over the muscle(s) and allow the unit to provide stimulation to the nerves, which will then stimulate the muscles.
How do T.E.N.S. Units work? When exercising, the muscle tissues swell and cause the blood flow within your capillaries to be cut off. This reduction of blood flow can reduce the recovery of the muscle. Metabolic waste products traveling through the blood stream can back up in the muscles, while valuable nutrients, like oxygen, can’t get in. Rather then waiting for the muscle to de-swell, athletes can alleviate these issues by stimulating the muscle with a T.E.N.S. Unit.
Researchers preformed a literature review of studies from over 42-years that found that muscle stimulation by T.E.N.S. Units had evidence of working better to lower blood lactate levels, a metabolic byproduct of exercise.
T.E.N.S. (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Units are proven to:
- Help with Muscle Recovery
- Help with Muscle Growth
- Alleviate Muscle Pain
