John Hovius Triathlete
I am fully addicted to the drugs that my body releases during intense triathlon racing, so to get my fix I race as many races in Australia that I can, then I head to the USA to race some more when it gets too cold in Australia. I end up racing about fifty times per year, sometimes three races in a weekend.
I’ve been doing this intense racing for a few years now, but this year has been so much easier with more consistent great results. The only change I have done in the past twelve months is my purchase of a COMPEX Mi-SPORT electro muscle stimulation machine. I had raced a few races where they had offered the use of COMPEX machines for recovery and I found I recovered quicker.
I bought my self the Mi-Sport just for the Recovery programme, but soon found so much use and now use the machine on average once a day. I still love the Active Recovery and Regeneration programs, which I use after each race-most times during the trip back. I now love the Sports and Cross Training where I have found the same effects as a two hour ride, but due to my constant travelling I can do these now sitting in a car or plane. I was late travelling to a Duathlon and was late, knowing that the race would start within twenty minutes of me hoping out of the car, I ran the Potentiation Warm-Up programme and had a fast great race.
I use the Massage programmes, Anti-Stress, Relaxing or Reviving, depending on how I feel-my family also love these, if they can get the machine off me. I was developing a calf problem but after a little reading and using the Pain Relief-capillarization programme, I was ready to race within days. At first I used the Pen during Test Points to find my optimal Electrode positioning, but now it has become second nature where I need to stick them.
The battery life amazes me every time, it lasts so long and with only a charge time of forty minutes. I have found I don’t use the Mi-Sensor so much on my self, but other people using my machine love it. I have had no problems or breakdowns with the machine, I’ve had a five Easy-Snaps break off on the small single electrodes, which has been my only problem, which is very minor.
My racing has differently improved due to my Mi-Sport, I strongly recommend using a muscle stimulation machine to everyone and I exceedingly recommend COMPEX.
