Mickleover Football Club Uses Power Plate To Prepare and Recover
Mickleover FC is a semi professional football club playing in the UK Southern League Premier Central.
Power Plate are ‘recover partners’ with the U16’s , Academy, Reserves and First team all using the Pulse before and after games and training for both preparation, but primarily recovery.
For the First team this is very important at the moment as they are playing midweek fixtures, so most weeks they play Saturday, Tuesday and Saturday so essentially 3 games in 8 days, so recovery is vital to prevent injuries and keep the player on the pitch performing at 100% for as long as possible.
"As a coach I use the Pulse not only for the obvious and powerful benefits in terms of blood flow, circulation, reducing muscle soreness but also it's simple to use and scalable in a team sports environment. It also encourages young players to take responsibility for their own performance and recovery, listen to how their body is feeling to build good habits for the future.
The players love to use them because they are ‘novel’ , easy to use and they can get recovery work done and still be able to chat to their team mates and saves a lot of time."
