Physical fitness is a cycle of give and take that makes the body fitter, healthier, and stronger. As there are no ups without downs or days without nights, the cycle of strain and relaxation is natural and one can’t exist without the other. When we exercise — no matter how hard — we strain our muscles, tendons, and ligaments and cause some damage to them in the process. When our body tissues recover, they grow slightly stronger every time. The repeating cycle of stress and recovery results in a healthier and fitter body.
Interestingly, there’s something called “immediate recovery,” which refers to the brief moments during exercise in which an athlete’s body has a chance to rest. For example, when a swimmer recovers in between strokes, or a race walker gives their feet a rest in between strides. But although immediate recovery occurs regularly, our muscles and tendons need much more recovery post-exercise to heal the microscopic tears in the muscle tissue caused by training and stimulate muscle growth. In short, if you want to grow stronger and perform your best, you’ll need an effective long-term recovery routine.
The gradual shift from exercising in gyms to home and virtual workouts since the start of the pandemic is bound to continue, as virtual workout platforms are becoming increasingly more popular and comprehensive. According to a recent survey, 72 percent of respondents believe virtual workouts will eventually replace traditional gyms. However, exercising at home without the guidance of an experienced trainer leaves many people with a higher risk of self-inflicted injury, muscle, or joint strain.
To prevent these issues and elevate your at-home post-exercise recovery, add BEMER therapy to your fitness regimen. BEMER is a wellness company that builds powerful, FDA-cleared consumer medical devices designed to emit a patented pulsed electromagnetic field signal (PEMF) that has a proven therapeutic effect on target muscles. Their devices are user-friendly, non-invasive, and stimulate healthy muscles for enhanced local blood flow, recovery, and performance in just two eight-minute daily sessions. BEMER’s muscle-recovery technology has been upending the market for over two decades, and, thanks to its proven efficiency, has become part and parcel of many famous athletes’ routines. “As a performance therapist to elite athletes, I recognize that a key component of performance is recovery. BEMER improves circulation and decreases perceived fatigue which directly translates to accelerated recovery and performance on the field,“ says Tom Zheng, MS, CES, PAS, Functional Performance Therapist & BEMER Ambassador.
BEMER is the go-to recovery tool for Pro Golfer & masters champion Mike Weir, World’s Top-Ranked Pickleball Player Tyson McGuffin, and Five-Time Off-Road Triathlon World Champion Lesley Paterson – among other professional athletes. However, professional athletes aren’t the only people who can benefit from BEMER therapy. Amateur gym-goers and those exercising at home will greatly enhance their performance with BEMER’s pro-level conditioning and recovery technology.
