RecoveryPump increases blood circulation via compression, which helps to clear metabolic waste and restore the natural delivery of oxygen and plasma to the muscle.

4. Enhances blood flow during use
5. Rapidly accelerates the body’s re-absorption of elements that cause soreness and fatigue

Pre-Training: Check in to the Recovery Lounge at Tribal for 20-Minutes ahead of your set. The relaxation ahead of a session can help you find a peak state for training, adopting a low pressure on the Recovery Pump will increase your circulation and help you with your transition from rest to work, begin your focus on your short term goals for your coming session.

Post-Training: The post-training session can see you attempting to stimulate the parasympathetic branch of your nervous system (rest and digest), the benefits of becoming parasympathetic dominant are endless, your health and performance will go to new levels. Here you can increase the Recovery Pump pressure, spend 20, 40 or 60 minutes following a guided meditation of just getting a quick nap before continuing with your day.

Meditation Benefits:

The benefits of meditation are simply too lengthy to list here, Instead, let’s focus on the massive benefits of meditation upon your performance training.

I would describe recovery as the ability to bring the mental and physical state back to – or as close as possible to – an optimal state, both calm and alkaline. In this optimal state of readiness, athletes can perform with maximal intensity, even the most unlikely underdog can compete heroically and everyone can get the most out of their training. So it’s clearly a place we want to be.

If exercise causes stress on your muscles and nervous system, then you should see mindfulness meditation as your ticket to physical relaxation (the opposite of stress) and, therefore, accelerated recovery. Quite often, athletes are obsessed with continuing to move, active recovery sessions are often scheduled on rest days, the argument for active recovery is that it can decrease muscle soreness, however, these benefits can be attained easily by walking slowly.
