Hey Fit to be King Team!

I'm excited to dive into this with you guys. As you know, this season we have teamed up with HiDow to give you guys eight steps to proper recovery.

Today, Leo and I dive into their specialty, Bio Electric Stimulation through the use of their Muscle TENS machine. This type of technology has changed the recovery game and is used on a daily basis by our LA Kings and many other professional athletes alike. But, lucky for us, HiDow's machines are bringing this state of the art technology to us at home with their portable machines.

So, let's get into how these machines work. TENS uses low-voltage electrical pulses that are used to block pain signals that are sent to the brain and stimulates the production of endorphins. Using a muscle TENS machine allows you to control your pain. These machines help with all sorts of issues, such as: limited mobility, chronic pain, sciatica, lower back pain etc. It can help any level of fitness enthusiast recover post-workout.

Since I purchased one of these machines, I have seen a HUGE improvement in my overall recovery time and well-being. If you can't buy one of these, go check out a wellness center near you or your local chiropractor!

Remember, train hard, but recover harder!
