The Pulse Device isn’t just to be used while you work out. It can add to a great pre workout to get your mind-muscle connection primed and your muscles ready to fire.
Using the Pulse Device pre workout is a great way to ensure that you have the best workout possible. When most people workout they do some basic stretches at most and then jump into whatever their lifting routine is. This often results in a weaker mind-muscle connection for the beginning of the workout. In order to reduce injury risk and increase your muscle activation it is imperative that your mind and your muscles are ready to work at the start of your lift.
Exercise 1: Practice contracting of the muscles you plan to use during your workout with the pulse devices on.
Place devices on your upper chest, lower chest, front delt and default tricep separately. Squeeze and hold for each until you can feel each contraction fully.
Exercise 2: Practice going through the main movements of your routine with the Pulse Device on the primary target muscle
The main compound lift on chest day is almost always going to be the bench press.
Place the devices on your chest with the chest setting. Close your eyes and go through the movement of a bench press. Make sure to feel how your chest is supposed to move the weight and then squeeze at the top for about 3 seconds to feel the full contraction of the muscle. Repeat 10 times or whatever feels right to you.
Alternative: If you want to focus more on triceps you can do the same thing with a close grip bench press, place the devices on triceps default and then focus on the contraction of your tricep muscles.
These two exercises should only take about 3 minutes in total but will give you a massive jump start to your workouts.
