For those of you that frequent the gym often, log in many miles of running, and push your body to the limit, I think I might have found just the product you are looking for. The Normatec Pulse Recovery System (Named after the owner’s Grandma) is a dynamic compression device designed to decrease soreness, increase circulation and help Athletes speed up recovery in between training sessions. The Normatec uses compressed air to massage, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery and it does this with a special patented pulse massage pattern. There are attachments for the legs, arms and hips.
Since I am a runner, and I workout 5/6 days a week, I thought who better to try it then me! After an hour of running intervals on the treadmill and a leg workout, I decided it was the perfect time to give it a go. I sat down on the most comfortable surface I could find at the gym-the mats, (you will be sitting for approx. 15 mins or more so make yourself comfortable)! I took my sneakers off and slid on both of the leg attachments. They have different lengths depending on how long your legs are. I took the shortest and proceeded to slide the black nylon attachments all the way up my leg as far as they could go and zipped them both up. I clipped both leg attachments into the main interface/battery. Once I was ready to go, I had to program it for duration of treatment, amount of pressure to be applied, and area of added focus. Operating it is super simple. I turned it on and gradually the air filled up the hollow attachments. It could only be described as looking as though two long balloons were being blown up in synchronicity completely encircling my legs. The best way to describe the feeling is AHHHH awesome- relaxing-a high tech massage. Where have you been all my life! Just the right amount of pressure and I could almost feel the blood pumping in my legs. I was already pushing the button to extend my treatment time before the first session was even done! The only thing that finally made me get out of the Normatec was my stomach growling! Ha! Other than the creases on my legs from the nylon I couldn’t tell the difference until the next morning. Flash forward…My legs felt great! I could definitely tell a difference. I felt stronger running! This is a great product and I have to say, I have continued to use it every week! 🙂
