Runners need this as part of their daily recovery. I’m about to turn 45 and have been running half and full marathons for the past 4 years. I am currently training for marathon #4 and have really upped my training game this training cycle.
I do 2 speed sessions and 1 long run per week with 2 recovery runs as well as cross training, 3x week of 15-20 min strength training and 4x per week of yoga. I run about 200 miles a month and love every minute. Training at different paces and running 50 mile weeks has been both exhilarating and challenging.
After increasing my training I started to notice that my legs were sore. Seeing my fitness really soar has been so wonderful and I’m thankful to be running totally injury and pain free- but I wanted to find something that could make my legs “bounce back” a little quicker so I could train harder.
To keep my legs fresh, I needed something serious like recovery boots. The air relax system is the most affordable and best one on the market. It delivers exactly the kind of pressure I need. I have been using foam rollers, massage guns, a lot of stretching, monthly chiropractor appointments but really needed something stronger and more effective.
When I am using the machine, I use the “F” mode. This means full legs. All the chambers full in succession and then release in succession for 15 or 30 minutes. After about a week I start to feel results. My legs felt like they can do a lot more. I have felt stronger and more refreshed on all of my workouts since using Air Relax. If you are an athlete looking to be on the top of your game, you need this unit!!
