Your workout is barely over and your most worked muscles are already "on fire". Your muscle fibres have suffered a mass of structural micro-injuries, with the release of creatine kinase enzymes from the cells, triggering acute inflammation. And the increased energy conversion has produced and "left" a series of metabolites (such as lactic acid) in your muscles - causing fatigue, muscle stiffness and soreness.

Electrostimulation offers a new way to do this: it effectively accelerates the release of muscle stiffness, fatigue, inflammation-causing metabolites (e.g.
