MAD-UP Pro is a safe and customizable blood flow restriction (BFR) program used to prevent and manage muscular deficit. MAD-UP’s innovative hardware device is capable of personalizing a BFR Training session safely and optimally. While BFR training has been proven to promote muscle growth, this modality needed more user-safety to adapt to the medical context of functional rehabilitation and muscle strengthening. 

How Does It Work?

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training is a technique that combines low-intensity exercise with blood flow occlusion that can produce similar results to high-intensity training. The goal of BFR training is to mimic the effects of high-intensity training by recreating a hypoxic environment using a cuff. The cuff is placed proximally to the muscle being exercised, and low-intensity exercises can be performed. Since the outflow of blood is limited with the cuff, capillary blood collects and leads to an increase in protons and lactic acid. The physiological adaptations to the muscle will take place during BFR training and low-intensity exercise as would naturally occur with high-intensity exercise. Preliminary analysis of the user’s physiological data in MadUp Pro includes heart rate, muscle density, and limb occlusion pressure (LOP). MadUp’s patented technology allows us to adjust pressure applied to the limbs via the cuff. Pressure is regulated in real-time, in which we can act upon movements and muscular contractions. The MadUp device is user friendly and comfortable for anyone to use. 

Protocols 

  • Muscular strength
  • Anti-atrophy
  • Endurance
  • Anti-pain

The Transformer Bar

The newly re-engineered Transformer Bar is a multi-function specialty barbell that adjusts the weight’s center of mass relative to the lifter’s body. This directly affects loading mechanics, movement dynamics, and training effect. This purpose-built machine is easy to use in professional, commercial, and home gym settings. The Transformer Bar features two adjustment mechanisms for modifying camber angle and distance from the center, allowing for a total of 24 unique angle and difficulty combinations. This easy-to-use bar was designed for use by individuals with no prior experience. The Kabuki Strength spring-pin mechanism allows for six positions with 30 degrees of variance between them. These positions replicate the following common squat movement patterns:

 

  • Back Squat – Low or High Bar
  • Hip Hinge – Ideal for good mornings and teaching hinge patterning.
  • Front Squat – A load counterbalancing similar to front squats. 
  • SSB – Traditional safety squat bar.
  • Goblet Squat – Like a kettlebell goblet squat. 

 

The Transformer Bar features a high-density foam core that allows for comfortable placement on the lifter’s back. 

Benefits 

  • Improved latissimus dorsi (lat) engagement. 
  • Increased stability at the thoracolumbar junction. 
  • Reduced risk of injury. 

 

The Transformer Bar has an official load capacity of 1500 pounds. The Transformer Bar is famous in team sport settings, allowing for variations in movement patterns while providing the safety and decreased risk of injury that only a specialty bar of this type can provide.

The Duffalo Bar

The Duffalo Performance Squat and Bench bar is the ultimate bar for bench pressing and squatting safely, correctly, and for performance. 

Benefits 

Every lifter could experience several benefits when using the Duffalo Bar over a standard barbell:

 

  • Improved scapular contraction – Reduced strain on the bicep tendon allows for proper joint centration and increased back rigidity, which is essential for strength and injury prevention. 
  • Improved core stability – This bar reduces the mobility demands of the shoulder, allowing the lifter to avoid excessive spinal extension and maintain spinal neutrality in a back squat rack position. Improved ability to generate core stability directly impacts your ability to brace and maintain spine neutrality. 

 

The Duffalo Bar is angled up rather than parallel since adding a variation to the sleeve angle could reproduce a similar center of gravity to a traditional straight bar. The Duffalo Bar allows the user to lift in the most optimal position. It can significantly reduce or eliminate shoulder pain while promoting an increased training effect from the different range of motion.

InBody Technology is the next evolution in bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and body composition analysis. This approach provides precise direct measurements of the body with the speed and ease of traditional BIA. Body composition breaks the body down into four core components: fat, minerals, protein, and body water. This describes your weight more accurately and provides a better understanding of your overall health than traditional methods. Body composition analysis can accurately show muscle mass, fat mass, and body fat percentage changes. 

What Is BIA?

Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) measures the body’s components. Alternating high and low- frequency electrical currents are sent through water in the body via contact with electrodes to measure impedance. Impedance is utilized to determine total body water (TBW), which can be used to derive your fat-free mass. Fat-free mass is the portion of your body that does not contain fat, including your muscle and bone. TBW can also be used to derive your body fat. 

How BIA Works

When an electrical current pulses through your body, the body’s components present varying resistance levels. Body water is extremely conductive and makes up a significant percentage of your body. Therefore, the more body water, the less resistance. The human body is composed of trillions of cells, each protected by a cell membrane that separates the inside of the cell from the outside (reactance). Impedance is the combination of resistance and reactance. BIA devices are used to determine your body composition and are measured in ohms (Ω). BIA defines the body as a cylinder and uses two concepts to describe the relationship between impedance and body water:

 

  • The volume of a cylinder.
  • Characteristics of impedance. Impedance is inversely proportional to cross-sectional area and is directly proportional to the length of the cylinder.

Revolutionizing BIA Technology with InBody

InBody’s medical-grade body composition analyzer relies on the following pillars of technology:

 

  • Multiple Frequencies – The analyzers use various frequencies to provide precision body water analysis. 
  • 8 Point Tactile Electrode System – Resistance occurs when the body comes into contact with an electrode. It is essential to control the measurement location to measure opposition in the human body accurately. 
  • Direct Segmental Measurements – InBody provides individualized feedback for improved progress tracking to help you achieve your goals. 
  • No Empirical Estimations – Empirical estimations provide somewhat accurate body composition but don’t consider that muscle mass decreases with age. We don’t include these equations since they are not truly real.

This scientifically proven, patented technology creates non-fatiguing muscle activation to enhance the muscle recovery stage. Marc Pro makes it easy to perform at your best, recover faster, and keep your body active and healthy for the future. 

How It Works

Studies show that muscle activation is a fundamental facilitator for all stages of your body’s natural recovery process. Foam rolling, ice, or compression boots are not very useful for improving your recovery. Your body requires active recovery to rebuild after a workout. A relaxing 30-60 minute session with Marc Pro several times per week allows you to:

 

  • Perform at your best. 
  • Recover faster. 
  • Maintain proper biomechanics.
  • Relieve exercise-related pain. 
  • Prevent overuse injuries. 
  • Maximize gains. 
  • Improve conditioning. 

 

Marc Pro and Marc Pro Plus makes healthy lifestyles a possibility for everyone. 

Marc Pro’s Proprietary Dynamic Decaying Waveform

The dynamic decaying of the Marc Pro waveform enables other parameters to be significantly altered. This includes a pulse duration that is longer than any device on the market. The signal is in the muscle for an extended period during each contraction and allows for a different recruitment level. Muscle fibers that are difficult to contract can be stimulated, leading to optimal recruitment for your conditioning and recovery goals while preventing discomfort, fatigue, or tetanization. 

Traditional Static Square Waveform

Nearly all EMS devices on the market utilize a traditional square waveform. Static square waveforms contract and hold the muscle at full power, then instantly releases it. This signal can create powerful contractions necessary for the original electrical stimulation goals of muscle re-education. 

Sports Performance Recovery Devices 

Sports performance recovery devices are intended to improve performance and recovery. Marc Pro uses a unique technology that never fatigues muscles, allowing you to recover fully. 

Process

The body’s muscle recovery process relies on muscle activation. Each stage of this process requires muscle movement to repair damaged tissue. 

 

  • Delivery of nourishment – Nourishment needs to be delivered to damaged tissue to begin the recovery process. When muscles are activated, they signal your smooth muscles surrounding blood vessels to relax. 
  • Waste removal – The next stage involves the process of removing waste, which can contribute to swelling and further damage. The lymphatic system is the passive system responsible for eliminating waste. Activating the muscles surrounding lymphatic vessels is required to push out waste. 
  • Tissue regeneration – During the tissue regeneration stage, myokines are produced and released into the body. Myokines are the proteins that drive tissue regeneration. Muscle activation provides the mechanical stress needed to create myokines to repair damaged tissue. 
  • Remodeling repaired tissue – Once the tissue is repaired, it needs to be remodeled. When new tissue forms, it creates a random pattern that makes it challenging for the tissue to smoothly slide past one another. The tissue needs to be arranged in straight lines to function properly. Movement allows the repaired muscle tissue to remodel.

Much like water, food, and sleep, light is imperative for our health and cellular function. Your body is designed to function with abundant natural sunlight, but most individuals do not get enough light every day. Light therapy is a safe, easy and effective way to add healthy light to your life, no matter the weather or season. 

How Does Joovv Work?

Joovv is a wellness device that delivers red and near-red (NIR) wavelengths of light directly to your skin and cells. Joovv light therapy is quick and only requires 10 minutes per treatment area. All you need to do is stand or sit in front of the device as your body and cells take in the light. Joovv does not include any ultraviolet (UV) rays and is entirely non-invasive. 

Benefits of Joovv

  • Enhanced Cellular Function and ATP Energy Production – In combination with a healthy lifestyle, light therapy treatments can systematically improve cellular health across your body. When your cells produce more ATP energy and work together efficiently, you can look and feel better. 
  • Improved inflammation – Light therapy treatments can help the body’s natural inflammation process as you recover from injury or illness. 
  • Improved Blood Flow – Light therapy can lead to a significant increase in blood circulation. This indicates that the tissues are receiving more oxygen and nutrients essential for healing. Light therapy also helps the circulatory system rid itself of toxic byproducts.

Sleep Optimization

Healthy light intake is crucial for sleep and maintaining the body’s natural circadian rhythms. The brain interprets light as a sign of when to be awake and asleep and creates vital sleep hormones like melatonin. Bright, blue light at night can interrupt your sleep cycle. Red light is a lower-intensity alternative that can help support longer and more restful sleep. Joovv’s Ambient Mode is designed to support sleep and circadian rhythms. 

Recovery, Healing, and Performance

Pro-athletes and trainers widely use light therapy to boost performance, improve fitness, and support recovery. The muscle cells require significant energy and strengthen through a process of tears and repairs. Light therapy helps the body produce and use power more efficiently. Supporting inflammation reduction and circulation with light therapy can help you recover after workouts and injuries. Joovv’s Recovery + Mode is designed to optimize the natural recovery process. 

Skin Health and Beauty

Healthy light intake is crucial for skin cells, skin health, and beauty. Red and NIR light promotes balance in the skin by enhancing cellular respiration. This makes energy production more efficient with less oxidative stress. When the cells are in better proportion, your skin looks and feels softer and more invigorated. 

We all need healthy light to thrive, but most of us don’t get nearly enough. Joovv’s light therapy device is easy to use in your home. Contact us today to learn more about this light therapy system and the systemic health benefits you can experience.
