The Marc Pro is intended for muscle conditioning by stimulating muscle in order to improve or facilitate muscle performance.
* The Marc Pro is not intended to be used for therapy or treatment of medical diseases or medical conditions.
Without Yesterday’s Fatigue You Will…
MAXIMIZE TRAINING RESULTS
During resistance exercise you break muscles down; the strengthening and improvement happens afterwards during the recovery/remodeling process.
HELP PREVENT INJURY
From pro athletes, to recreational athletes, to urban athletes (computer work, etc) over-use causes the majority of injuries
IMPROVED CONDITIONING AND PERFORMANCE
Using Marc Pro regularly will condition muscles by improving the capacity of your vascular system; without any drugs or side effects…
The basis for post exercise recovery is the normalization of tissue through the movement of nourishment and waste. Marc Pro is specifically designed to accelerate this process. The Marc Pro muscle conditioning device creates unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events. We call this a Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade, or “MARC®” for short.
The process begins with the activation of Nitric Oxide (NO), which dilates blood vessels and leads to increased flow delivering more oxygenated blood and nutrients to the area. The lymphatic and venous systems also require and benefit from localized muscle activity. Because of this, using the Marc Pro after physical activity helps move the related waste and deoxygenated blood away from the fatigued area(s). This exchange of nourishment and waste, without stress or fatigue, accelerates the recovery of the muscle.
The Marc Pro does more than accelerate the recovery process. When used on a consistent basis, the Marc Pro actually improves overall muscle performance in two ways:
A published research study showed a significant increase in limb blood flow during the first application of Marc Pro technology. After a three week period of using Marc Pro five days per week, limb blood flow increased markedly more upon application. This additional increase or reserve was possible because the consistent use resulted in new additional vessels in the area (angiogenesis) giving more capacity to the region.
Another recent published study concluded that adding Marc Pro usage after existing workout regimens appears to produce significantly greater gains in muscle strength and significantly greater reductions in feelings of muscle fatigue.
The Marc Pro electronic muscle conditioning device is comfortable and very easy to use. There are two independent channels (A and B) and two self-adhesive electrodes per channel. Each channel can be used on specific muscles or multiple muscle groups at the same time. The device should be used while sitting or lying in a relaxed position.
A short 10-20 minute session before activity can be a great warm-up. For the best recovery you’ll start Marc Pro shortly after workout completion or before the end of the day and use it for 30-60 minutes. For improved conditioning and performance, and to proactively address issues, use Marc Pro on the target muscles at least three times per week for at least 30 minutes per session.ELECTRODE PLACEMENT
