SHOULD YOU USE A MASSAGE GUN AFTER A WORKOUT?
Tight, tired muscles, and the ‘3 day ache’ thanks to those dreaded DOMS! Sound familiar?
Rest and recovery is as important, if not more, than the killer workout itself. The purpose of a cool down is to promote muscle relaxation and normalize your heart rate. We need to give our bodies adequate time to recover and allow our muscles chance to repair in between exercise sessions.
Did you know continuous exercise with limited cool down periods and minimal rest can actually weaken even the strongest of athletes!
Using your MuscleGun massage gun for recovery, you can improve your recovery time, alleviate those tight & tired muscles, and enhance performance for your next workout.
MASSAGE GUN POST WORKOUT - STEPS TO RECOVERY
Follow these steps to recovery:
Step 1) Select your preferred attachment and insert into the device. Using the MuscleGun User Manual for guidance on your attachment choice.
Step 2) Using the control panel on the top of your device, select your desired speed setting.
Step 3) Using a sweeping motion, gently float the device across all key muscle groups on your body for around 5-10 minutes.
Step 4) Gradually apply more pressure to areas of the body where you feel the muscles are particular tight or sore. Continue the movement with your device across the muscle groups until tension and pain alleviate.
This will improve blood flow and circulation around to the areas in need with almost instant pain relief, speeding up your recovery and getting your body ready for that next work out!
