Pulsed sequential compression devices, such as the Normatec compression system, have become popular among elite athletes looking to recover from tough workouts and prepare for the next one. Now recreational athletes and active adults are using these compression devices for their own muscle recovery.

In this video, I discuss the science behind pulsed sequential compression and show you my experience with using Normatec compression boots on my legs after a challenging leg workout in the weight room.

Always talk to your doctor before trying this or any recovery treatment. If you are interested in pulsed sequential compression, try it and see how it works for you.
