Weight Training

Intended Use (Make workouts easier)

  • Pre-workout: To help you warm up your muscles.
  • Intra-workout: To cool you down and help you recover between sets. This should help you increase your workout volume.
  • Post-workout: To provide you a combination of hot and cold techniques for recovery.  This should help you optimize your recovery and adaptation between workouts.

Directions – How to Use

  1. Prepare. Refrigerate cold packs to 40-50 °F before use. And remove one heat pack from package 30 minutes before use (if applicable).
  2. Apply heat pack (if applicable) to the palm of the hand, and insert both into the recovery sleeve (logo facing out) before you start your workout. Apply for 2-5 min on each arm to help you warm up the body. Also follow steps 3, 4 and 5 below.
  3. Make sure you secure the top of the sleeve with attached strap to prevent air from escaping and to seal the negative pressure compression recovery sleeve.
  4. Make sure you use the suction squeeze pump until air is completely removed from inside the sleeve.
  5. Make sure you periodically squeeze the squeeze pump to remove air and hold the negative pressure compression.
  6. Apply cold during your rest periods (1-5 minutes) when the goal is to make your workouts easier and perform more work. Apply on both arms during your rest periods throughout your workout (You can alternate one arm every rest recovery period).
  7. Repeat as needed. Post-workout, finish cold for recovery. Warm for adaptation. 5-15 minutes recovery duration. Apply 1 to 1 ratio on both arms.
  8. Turn the negative pressure compression sleeve inside out to air dry after use.

Please note

  • Cold packs should NOT be frozen or applied at a temperature colder than 40°F. This will cause the capillaries in the palm to constrict, which will prevent the removal of heat.
  • Cold packs are good for 5-10 minutes (or until 64°F), then switch to a new cold pack.
  • Heat packs are good for roughly 10 hours. The heat packs may take up to 30 minutes to heat activate. While the temperature between the heat packs may vary between 100-160°F. Remove immediately if too hot.
  • Seal the recovery sleeve at the top of the arm and make sure that no undershirts prevent a complete seal. Otherwise air will leak and prevent negative pressure compression.

Other Use (Make Workouts Harder)

  • Pre-Workout: To cause metabolic stress to the arms before weight training. Attempting to increase post-workout muscle size through adaptation.
  • Intra-workout: To continue to cause metabolic stress to the arms during weight training. With the goal of increasing post-workout muscle size by increasing adaptation. This is done by restricting the top of the arm with a stretchable cuff. You apply it to the resting arm when doing unilateral circuits. This allows you to lift your normal weight while using this form of blood flow restriction training (bfrt). When combining it with palm cooling, you increase your ability to recover between sessions. Allowing you to use blood flow restriction training more often.

Directions – How to Use

Blood flow restriction training (Bfrt) is typically used with light weights. The directions provided below are only for use with an All Natural PED negative pressure, compression sleeve.

  1. Clear with a medical professional to make sure blood flow restriction training is safe for you.
  2. To use blood flow restriction training with palm cooling. Please follow and use steps 1-6 found above. Then also apply the following to use bfrt.
  3. Attach the stretchable Velcro strap that ships with your All Natural PED recovery sleeve to the top of your sleeve.
  4. Pull it tight enough to restrict the venous return blood flow. The level of restriction should be a 5 out of 10 in tightness. With 10 being as tight as possible. If you lose feeling or experience a tingling sensation, immediately remove or loosen the strap, and allow blood flow to return to normal.
  5. When applying bfrt with palm cooling, you must apply it on your rest periods. Ideally, when using unilateral circuits and applying it to the resting arm in the circuit.
  6. Your arm circuit should last roughly 3-5 minutes. Rotate the arm that receives the recovery sleeve and bfrt every circuit. Repeat as desired.
  7. Turn the negative pressure compression sleeve inside out to air dry after use.

  • Do not use blood flow restriction training without approval from your medical professional. Perform it under medical supervision.
