To end a program early, use the speed forward or the rewind function. These are activated by pushing the RIGHT key or the LEFT key for a couple of seconds (until you hear a beep).
If you are using a program made by more than one segment, the LEFT or RIGHT keys will move the program to the next segment. The segments are shown by the number of bullets on the left of the display, and when you speed forward or rewind the cursor that highlights the bullet will move to the next.
Many Sport programs have two segments (the first one warm up). Sprint Prep., and Endurance Prep. are each composed by four and three segments respectively. You can use speed forward to shorten or skip warm up altogether. In the middle of warm up, push the RIGHT key for a couple of seconds: you hear a beep, and the cursor will move to the next bullet.
The Globus Units feature a 2+2 function which allows one two run two different programs on your body, or to run with two people at the same time. If you go to the menu item "Advanced", there will be a further sub-menu entry for "Mode 2+2". This mode basically allows one to connect channel 1 and 2 on a muscle group, and channel 3 and 4 on a different muscle group.
First you select one program for channel 1 and 2, for instance "Endurance 1", "Upper Legs"; then you get kicked back to the training programs, and you can select the program for for channel 3 and 4, for instance "Active recovery", "Lower Leg". At this point you'll be presented withe the start screen showing the two programs.
When you press the OK key you will notice two timers. By pressing the "fn" keys several times you will be able to highlight either timer and adjust duration if you wish. For current adjustment you will not be able to use the main UP or DOWN keys, since you want to adjust channels 1 and 2 independently from channels 3 and 4. You have the possibility of adding split cables to make up for the fact that you have now only two channe per muscular group.
NiMH 1.5 Ah (Amperes hours). The Globus uses microchip technology to regulate and generate the electric current going through the muscle. When the units are well charged regularly, the batteries last almost forever.
After a long period of inactivity the batteries will lose their charge. The complete charging time for the Globus is 16 hours. The first three times you charge your Globus battery, charge it for the complete amount of time without interruption.
Pads should go on the most innervated parts of the muscle. One is the part of the muscle that is most distant from the head, but not too far, like almost on the joint. The other position is between the middle of the muscle and two thirds up.
