If you are on the line between two sizes, use the larger one for your race kit and the smaller one for your post race recovery. The tight pressure of these socks will help circulate the blood and clear waste products. Best time to put this stuff on is immediately post-race or hard training session. On a final note, the long Mudgear socks will give you the best recovery.

An Electrical Muscle Stimulation EMS device is basically a series of electrodes that hook to the targeted muscle (aka muscle you want to improve). The device then sends electrical currents through your muscles making them forcibly contract. Model dependent, the device comes with several settings including endurance, recovery, resistance, strength, pre-warm up, explosive strength and potentiation. It provides a portable recovery device you can actually use at your desk or while sitting on the couch.
