After having thoroughly read the website info and watching a few videos I am considering the purchase of a Marc Pro. It’s a rather large purchase for me at this time so, I would appreciate any input from experienced users here…even just a simple “go, no go” would be helpful.
i actually use an electrostim unit for training called the ARPWave POV (http://www.arpwave.com) through EVOUltrafit (http://www.evoultrafit.com) and it helps you recover but not in the way you would use the marc pro. so it took me a while to figure out what kind and how to use an electrostim unit for recovery. however it is probably out of your price range if you think the marc pro is expensive.
Thanks David. Good points all.
if you’re 50 (i’m 48) you’ll most likely need more protein. i was doing 1g and not recovering for the next day. i upped that to 1.5g and instantly i was ready the next day! see this article:
Yes, the Marc Pro improves recovery.
Here is some info on the differences between a Marco Pro and a TENS unit.
Each has different goals when addressing a situation.
A Marc Pro will facilitate and enhance muscle performance and recovery.
TENS is a pain management device not a muscle performance/recovery device.
from Marc Pro:
Since all muscles contractions essentially “look” the same (the muscle contracts) … your observation that the contractions produced by a MARC PRO unit look the same as contractions produced by TENS unit is correct.
In fact, if you have ever been shocked by a faulty electrically wire in your home … the contraction produced by that encounter would also “look” the same. That said, the contraction produced by that faulty wire (or a TENS) would not “feel” the same. Additionally, if you continued “shocking” yourself with that faulty wire (or a TENS) you would eventually fatigue/damage the involved muscle. My point is this; if you want to fatigue a muscle, MARC PRO is the wrong tool. MARC PRO will not fatigue your muscle (instead, it will facilitate and enhance muscle performance and recovery).
Important additional point, since TENS is not designed (or cleared by the FDA) to facilitate and enhance muscle performance and recovery and MARC PRO is, it is unfair to compare results between the two devices (TENS is a pain management device not a muscle performance/recovery device).
Here is a related article that Gary Rein from Marc Pro and others wrote for the Journal of Exercise Physiology.
The Marc Pro Device is a Novel Paradigm Shift in Muscle Conditioning, Recovery and Performance

Yes and it has helped exponentially but there is only so much I can do. I am a big guy (6’3″/200#) trying to fit in a small place, working with a subject that has it’s own opinions of what’s going on. Most that I do are good to work with. In fact, I reserve the right to refuse the unruly ones because I’m no longer willing to risk injury by being jerked and snatched on… Through my 28 yrs in the biz, I have earned my way to the top of the food chain. I do high end hunters and jumpers. They are the Olympic athletes of their realm (in a few cases, quite literally). As such, they deal with injury, aches, pains and mobility issues the same way we do as athletes. Only they can’t verbalize their complaints. When they come home from a lengthy, arduous road trip they will be stiff, sore, perhaps a little tweaked somewhere, or just generally jaded and tired, particularly the older, high mileage horses. That said, I have to compromise my position at times to keep the patient comfortable and standing quietly. If you flex or extend the sore joint too much, best case scenario would be the equivalent of trying to hold up the rear end of a Volvo with the parking brake released…worst case, you get you head taken off :o). Gotta show ’em some respect and they’ll give it back to you.
Thank you Kaitlin. Yes, I am clear on the differences between the TENS and Marc Pro. (See above) I used the TENS to prop up my bad behavior for some time. At least until ‘shocking’ myself into spinal support no longer had the desired effect…lol.
You’re right on David. I do most of that between feet …out of necessity. Move around, drink some water, stretch out the anterior chain as much as possible. I could do a video on using an anvil to mobilize…lol. However, I would have draw the line at ball smash mobs because, no matter how I tried to explain it, the wealthy ladies would likely not understand why the Farrier is grinding around on the floor or against the wall and apparently having a seizure of some sort :o). Would be effective though…
oh if you can’t get a doc to do a blood panel for you, try wellnessFX http://www.wellnessfx.com. good luck!
Oh yeah…it would, no doubt, be quite the scene…lol.
