VERTICS.Sleeves against arm pumps in motocross
VERTICS.Sleeves against the dreaded arm pump! No more tight arms with forearm compression!
On the Whitsun weekend of 2018, the Motocross Grand Prix Germany MX-GP took place at MSC Teutschenthal . Hundreds of motocross racers from all over the world were out and about in the basin on the MSC route. They fought hard fights in the qualifying runs and later in the finals of the various classes. Whether in motocross or in other motorcycle races such as the Moto-GP , the drivers fight against the dreaded arm pump or fixed arms , blue forearms , pumped forearms . There are many names for this uncomfortable feeling when the forearm muscles become too acidic and the forearms gradually “walk”. Accelerating, braking and clutching is then no longer controlled or even no longer possible. Then the race is over and often has to be stopped.
VERTICS was there as a sponsor and presented VERTICS.Sleeves , compression cuffs for the forearms .
The compression gauntlets for the forearms are becoming more and more popular in many other sports in climbing for the last 4 years. VERTICS.Sleeves are not only effective in climbing and SUP, canoeing, kayaking, rowing, or paddling for short , but also in motorcycle sports they work against arm pumps.
Feedback from motocrossers:
Do the arm pump test with VERTICS.Sleeves
Motorsport friends and visitors to the VERTICS booth were also quickly convinced by the arm pump test with the pump rollers.
After determining the size, VERTICS.Sleeves are only pulled over one forearm and then a 5kg weight is rolled up over an axle. Almost all test persons felt the beneficial effect of the sleeves after a short time.
Additional benefits of VERTICS.Sleeves and conclusion
When driving, our compression gauntlets also support the tendons and ligaments of the forearm. A back and forth swinging of the muscles (oscillation) is significantly reduced by the stabilizing effect of our arm warmers and thus they contribute to fatigue-free driving.
Of course, VERTICS.Sleeves are not a panacea against arm pumps, technology and psyche as well as nutrition and sodium and electrolyte balance (information from Ambos Miamed) are decisive for reducing arm pumps or excessive acidification of the muscles. Seat, posture, core muscles, long jumps, etc., of course, also contribute to a reduced arm pump.
But let’s be honest, a little help in avoiding or reducing pumped forearms is welcome. And this is exactly where VERTICS.Sleeves come in. A study from 2015 showed that athletes who trained with VERTICS.Sleeves compression gauntlets had less lactate in their bloodstream and felt less strained than the comparison groups without compression of the forearms.
