NormaTec Pulse Massager – What is it and how does it work?
Many of you may have probably seen this being used by numerous college/professional athletes and wondered, “what is that?”
Well, you’re in luck because I’m going to shed some light on this awesome piece of equipment.
The NormaTec Pulse Massager is made to serve as another form of muscle recovery for your arms and legs. It works by traveling up and down the limb while compressing and decompressing in a specific sequence. By doing so, it enhances blood flow and improves the movement of built up fluids/metabolites (from your workouts) out of your limbs, thereby speeding up your recovery time between training sessions.
Consequently, because it has been backed by many studies from sources like the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research, it is becoming a standard post-workout recovery routine for many pro and college athletes.
So for the next time you see it and begin to wonder what it’s for, refer back to this post. I hope this helped!
