Improve Your Vertical Jump for Volleyball With Compex Muscle Stimulators

What do volleyball players with powerful serves, spikes and blocks all have in common? Strong vertical jumps.

A vertical jump for volleyball athletes is a key skill that will take you from good to great. So how can you maximize your workouts without spending hours beyond hours in the gym? The secret is with Compex's electric muscle stimulator (EMS).

EMS is delivered through a small device that sends electronic pulses to your nerve fibers in order to create involuntary muscle contractions. Your muscles don't know if you're using EMS or performing strength training. When you supplement your typical volleyball training with Compex, your muscle fibers will be fully recruited to help you take your workout and strength to the next level without hurting your body.

Your normal workouts (voluntary muscle contraction) activate as many as 30 percent of your muscle fibers. When you combine EMS to your training, you maximize your muscular effort by reaching up to 100 percent of your muscle fibers-both Type 1 slow twitch muscle (endurance) and Type 2 fast twitch muscle (power and explosiveness). That means maximum efficiency with maximum results.

Adding Compex to your regular volleyball training for recovery brings fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to flush toxins out within minutes, which means faster recovery time.

How to Use Compex for Improving Your Vertical Jump for Volleyball?

Simply place the self-adhesive pads on the muscle areas displayed below. Follow the program to increase your vertical jump this volleyball season.

Targeted Muscle Group: Quads

quad muscle stim COMPEX MODE FOR STRENGTH:

Resistance or Strength

First 2 Weeks: Level 1-2 | After 2 Weeks: Level 3-5

Turn up the intensity during the contraction. Each time you use Compex, try to increase the level of intensity higher than your previous session. It may take you awhile to adjust. Results develop as you increase the intensity.

COMPEX MODE FOR RECOVERY:

Active Recovery, Recovery Plus, Pre-Warm Up

Quad Electrode Placement


Targeted Muscle Group: Calves

calf muscle stim COMPEX MODE FOR STRENGTH

Resistance or Strength

First 2 Weeks: Level 1-2 | After 2 Weeks: Level 3-5

Remember to turn up the intensity during contraction.

COMPEX MODE FOR RECOVERY:
