“The day after your hard day is supposed to suck. Using the Marc Pro, it doesn’t, and that makes training more fun.”
A few more highlights from the review on Marc Pro…
“In the month I’ve used the Marc Pro, it’s helped me increase mileage and intensity without re-injuring my fussiest tendon. If you’re like me and you have one or multiple lingering problem areas just waiting to sideline you every time you challenge yourself, the Marc Pro’s localized relief becomes indispensable.”
“I’m no exercise physiologist, but in my eight years of running, the Marc Pro is the most effective self-recovery method I’ve used.”
“Last Saturday, I did a 13-mile trail run with 1,600 feet of climbing—too much for my fitness level and my tender, scar tissue-clad achilles—and I expected my legs to work like 2x4s on Sunday’s slow and short run. I used the Marc Pro for 30 minutes on both achilles and 30 minutes on both quadriceps that night and loped a brisk 8 miles with minimal soreness and pain the following day. The day after that, I felt no worse for wear; the worst of the DOMS never arrived.”
“A multitude of cheaper recovery methods abound and I’ve had good luck with many of them, but for reducing recovery time and rehabilitating my most fatigued tendons and tissues, the Marc Pro is peerless. The day after your hard day is supposed to suck. Using the Marc Pro, it doesn’t, and that makes training more fun.”
