Sponsored: Core TX: super cool

Research from Stanford University shows palm cooling during workouts can dramatically accelerate results, making it the next big thing in recovery

Palm cooling between sets with the CoreTx GO rapidly accelerates training performance

CET has launched its latest product – the CoreTx GO – a new palm cooling device, which has been found to drastically improve training performance while also reducing fatigue, according to research by Stanford University’s Professor Craig Heller.

Breakthrough Technology
The CoreTx GO device is used in workouts to cool the palm of the hand during rest periods. Multiple scientific studies have shown the impact of this simple, localised cooling, with peer reviewed scientific literature noting a 40 per cent increase in bench press work volume in just three weeks when the CoreTx GO was used and 144 per cent increase in pull-up volume recorded over a six weeks period in experienced subjects.

Matt Lawrence, owner of London-based gym, Cross Fit 2012, began his relationship with CET when he installed a Cryo Spa Ice Bath in the gym’s new recovery facility in early 2022 and has been using the CoreTx GO palm cooling device with clients ever since.

“At first, I was extremely sceptical about this technology, but we’ve seen some truly remarkable results,” says Lawrence. “In six weeks we’ve seen clients double their total reps of dips and bench press, almost double their pull-ups in four sessions and bicep curl 50 per cent more reps in four sessions – and these are experienced lifters!”

CrossFit2012 members have seen incredible improvement across a variety of different exercises after palm cooling for just two minutes between sets. The added cooling period has drastically enhanced repetitions performed, increased time to fatigue and radically improved overall workload for members, from highly experienced to beginner gym goers, with improvement up to 91 per cent shown in just four sessions with the device.

“What we’re seeing with palm cooling is that the drop-off in repetitions between sets is much less. Without the cooling people might perform 15 reps on their first set, then maybe 10 on their second, seven on their third etc.” Lawrence says. “However, by using the CoreTx GO to cool the palms between sets, you can maintain the reps throughout. As the total reps performed is higher per set, the overall workload is significantly higher.”

An Innovative Future
The CoreTx GO is a portable device that easily integrates into any gym or training facility and can be used by two people at once. CET hopes this will be the latest product utilised by the best sports teams and athletes worldwide to maximise performance and optimise recovery of their athletes.

“We’ve already seen high-performance training facilities and premium gyms begin to integrate things like hyperbaric chambers to simulate altitude training, cryotherapy chambers and infrared saunas for recovery,” says Colin Edgar, MD of CET. “I believe this trend will continue to increase and although the highest calibre training facilities will lead the way in terms of integrating innovative technology, such as the CoreTx GO, its use will continue to trickle down to regular gyms and studios.”

Bringing elite recovery to gyms

In 2012, CET – leading provider of Cryo Spa Ice Baths for elite sports – provided Team GB with its products for use in recovery at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Since then, CET has gone on to work with elite sporting clients in over 40 countries around the world, including AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, AELTC (Wimbledon) and Wembley Stadium, as well as the 2022 Qatar World Cup

CET’s new CoreTx GO palm cooling device – which has been found to drastically improve training performance and reduce fatigue – is now available for use in gyms.
