41 year old male
A recreational ultra-distance runner. I am currently competing in “Racing The Planet’s” 4 Desert races, self supported, multi-day endurance foot race. A race in which Time Magazine recently rated as one of the hardest endurance races in the world.
After completing the Sahara Race and Atacama Crossing, my focus is now on training for the Gobi March. This is where the SomaPulse™ comes in. I started using the Somapulse consistently, 2 months ago, at the beginning of my 8 month training schedule. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure if I would be ready to go for the next event due to chronic runner’s knee and a hip injury. However, after using the SomaPulse™ I have no doubt I will be ready to go this June.
My experience: Pain of sore, achy muscle and joints has dramatically decreased.
- Recovery after workouts and long runs has sped up dramatically and muscle fatigue has been greatly decreased.
- Energy levels have increased. I am recording personal best training times and am at least 2 months ahead of my normal out-put ranges.
- Weekly training time and distances have increased due to overall energy and stamina increases.
- General repair to chronic knee and hip soreness to the point of little or no discomfort.
In summary, I use the SomaPulse™ 5 to 7 days a week for 1 to 4 hours per day depending on my situation. I stuff it in my underwear (on my glutes), in my pants (on my thighs and hips) or wrap it around my knees and ankles, depending on my needs. I have even worn it in my running tights during a workout. I consider it a valuable asset to my “optimal wellness toolbox” and a staple within my home.
