HOW DOES IT WORK:
The body will naturally remove waste products through our lymphatic system and blood vessels, however to do this we need our muscles to contract to push the lymphatic, as the venous systems don’t have the ability to pump on their own.
‘Active Recovery’ (light exercise) is often performed, resulting in muscle contraction to assist with lymphatic drainage and venous return however this process can be sped up…enter Recovery Boots!
Recovery boots provide an alternative to the passive way the body naturally removes bi-products that result in soreness and fatigue.
Active sequential compression is applied when using the boots. This increases circulation and improves the rate at which metabolic waste products are cleared while increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles.
This speeds up the recovery process in a way that exceeds other forms of recovery, by stimulating an “active recovery” process while still being at rest.
WHY DO WE GET SORE MUSCLES:
Muscle pain and fatigue after exercise is the result of micro damage and inflammation in the muscle cells, which leads to an accumulation of metabolic or chemical waste products that don’t fully clear while exercising or cooling down.
The accumulation of these bi-products then often presents as fatigue, heaviness, soreness and a decrease in performance. To recover well we must be able to remove these things quickly and efficiently.
WHEN SHOULD THEY BE USED:
Before training or racing: 15-20 minutes of use prior to exercises will increase circulation and kick start the venous system. It is essentially assisting you in warming up without using exerting energy.
After training or racing:
Immediately after a workout for 30 – 45 minutes
If you need to go about your daily activities prior to use then 60 – 90 minutes of use provides best results.
We provide 45 and 60 minute time slots for use.
