Chill session with Floyd Mayweather #MayPac

Floyd Mayweather Jr. uses a new high-tech pod to recover after an intense training.

It’s called a cryosauna and it looks like something out of an animated series with yellow-haired characters.

Mayweather posted a video on his Facebook page which showed him using the cryosauna, an extremely low-temperature pod, at SuvZero Recovery on Las Vegas, making him the first person to use the high-tech gizmo.

SubZero Recovery CEO Dave Levi said in the video that the method used in the cryosauna is meant to replace an ice bath.

This will give you that initial shock where you instantly freeze, it will oxygenate your blood, pickup enzymes,” Levi explains in the video. “It actually gets much colder than an ice bath.”

Levi added that ice baths normally go to as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit but the cryosauna can go as low as negative 240 degrees and it’s because of liquid nitrogen.

“When you step out of the machine … those enzymes, the proteins in your blood, the oxygenated blood, will flow back out, and it’ll heal whatever it is,” Levi said in the video. “If you have joint pain, if you have soreness in your muscles from working out, that’s kind of what we’re hoping to do for Floyd because we know he works out so hard every day.”

It looks like Mayweather is pulling out all the stops for his May 2 welterweight unification bout against Manny Pacquiao at MGM Grand Garden Arena, even using something Son Goku would use. IDL
