Compression recovery units

  1. Compression recovery units


    Has anybody ever used compression recovery units?

    I know there are a few out there; revita pump, sport pump, recovery pump and normatec.

    Im wondering which one is best and if one would be worth buying?


  2. A good cool down after working out and some chryotherapy (like a contrast bath) should do the trick.

  3. Contrast baths speak volumes for the human body!

  4. The basic idea behind the compression recovery units is to force fluid (which contain metabolic biproducts, inflammatory biochemicals, acids...toxins for lack of a better term) back into systemic circulation, allowing for the delivery of "fresh blood" and thus improving recovery. I will have to dig up the study, but there is some evidence to show the underarmor full body compression suit improved recovery following a D1 football game (or practice). This was done at UConn.

    Either way, a good light cardio cool down, foam rolling, and then a contrast bath will do the same thing, for a fraction of the monetary cost.
