Normatec 3 vs. Previous Leg Recovery Systems: Why Is Normatec 3 Better?
If you are an athlete, you know the importance of recovery. After a hard workout, your body needs time to rest and rebuild so that you can continue to excel. In the past, athletes had two main options for recovering from a tough workout: ice baths or massage therapy. While both of these methods have their benefits, Normatec offers a better way to recover.
What is the Normatec leg recovery system?
‘’Normatec has established itself as the premier recovery product in the world. It started amongst elite performance athletes and sort of filtered over to the entertainment community, because entertainers like athletes are performers. Sometime around a few years ago there was a spillover of the Normatec into the broader culture.’’
Anthony Katz - the founder of Hyperice
Normatec leg recovery system from Hyperice is an excellent tool for anyone who is looking to improve their circulation and reduce discomfort and soreness in their legs. The Normatec uses a combination of compression and massage to increase blood flow and help your legs recover from physical activity faster. It’s to use and can be used on both your upper and lower legs.
Hyperice has just launched its latest product, the Normatec 3, this model is more affordable than ever before and comes with all of Hyperices' trademark features.
This means you get durability for an unbeatable price point.
If you’ve been following the latest fitness/recovery tech trends, you most probably know that Normatec 2.0 and 2.0 PRO leg recovery systems were the ones everyone was talking about not so long ago. While Normatec 2.0 is still available for a limited amount of time you may think - why should I choose Normatec 3 and what are the pros and cons? In this blog post we’ll look at the benefits, differences, pros and cons of both models - Normatec 2.0 and Normatec 3 so you can be sure to choose the right one for your needs.
Normatec 2.0 and Normatec 2.0 PRO
Normatec 2.0 was launched in April 9, 2019.
Both Normatec 2.0 Systems are Bluetooth enabled allowing you to connect to your phone through the Hyperice app meaning you can sit back at home and control your whole recovery process all in the palm of your hands.
The Normatec 2.0 PRO has a Rehab Mode which has pre-programmed settings built into it to target each area or the leg that needs more attention. The Normatec 2.0 is recovery focused as well and operates one program called Recovery Flush where once a treatment time or intensity level is selected, it will apply the same levels of pressure through the system cycling bottom-to-top. While lacking customisable programming options as 2.0 PRO has, the 2.0 still provides great benefits in an affordable package. The size/weight of both models is identical. Both models also feature Bluetooth capability and an internal battery that works for 2.5+ hours of active pumping time.
Normatec 3 is the next generation of Normatec's iconic line, using dynamic air compression to advance wellness and recover faster while maximising performance. The patented precision pulse technology helps increase circulation which in turn revives muscles and reduces swelling, all for an improved experience that has been chosen by elite athletes all over the world!
The patented Pulse technology from the 7 levels of compression and Zoneboost™ delivers precise treatment to 5 overlapping zones with biomimicry that imitates natural muscle pumps.
Both the Normatec 3 and 2.0 Pro systems allow you to customise your training program for your individual needs, which means you can adjust them to be more focused on specific areas that need extra care. You can target one area in particular with greater intensity than others based on how much time or pressure is needed there specifically - this could lead you towards achieving optimal results faster!
