Massage guns have been touted as an essential part of any gym-goer’s or sportsperson’s recovery kit every day and a favorite of most athletes on social media. If you or your friends and relatives are into health and fitness, we have an excellent perk for you! 


Introducing the Fuego X9 Massage gun, a device offering deep heated percussion massage that will leave you feeling relaxed and recovered from your workouts! 


Fast, convenient, and effective! Despite being a recent innovation, percussive therapy proves that it’s more than just hype.

 

As every fitness enthusiast knows, warming up is incredibly important to keep your muscles safe and healthy. There is nothing worse than going into an intense workout and having to stop because you have pulled a muscle or experienced a muscle strain!


The American Heart Association has cited that cooling down is as critical as warming up. This is because cooling down helps in reducing the build-up of lactic acid which causes muscle stiffness and cramping. Although, it takes time and you might not have the energy after a workout to cool down. So what could be the solution? 


Without a doubt, a fitness massager is a great tool to use when cooling down. We’ve listed all the massage gun benefits in our previous blog, in case you haven’t had the chance to go through it, here’s the link again


So what are the PROs or advantages of using a massage gun? 

Here’s the list of reasons why massage gun is the best recovery partner: 


  • It prevents Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). According to a 2014 study published in the Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research, vibration therapy, “improves muscular strength, power development, and kinesthetic awareness.” It also, “effectively improves muscle performance which may prevent DOMS.” A massage gun can deliver deep vibrations in your muscles using percussive therapy that could alleviate the pain and could give you a fast remedy whenever DOMS happens. 
  • It prevents injury. The same study explains that the vibration syncs the muscle spindles which results in an improved expanse of motion. Using a massage gun helps improve your blood and oxygen circulation, and the odds of overtraining and wearing out a muscle rapidly are reduced. Thus, you don’t have to worry after a heavy session. Simply turn the massage gun on and let it soothe your hardworking muscles. 
  • It helps prevent muscle spasms. By applying pressure to your muscles after a workout or training session, your muscles become calmer and are very unlikely to spasm or become stiff. The continuous movement of the massage gun warms your muscles and relaxing them in a controlled way. 
  • It gives Targeted Relief. Since massage guns are handy sports recovery tools, you can literally enjoy them whenever you want. At the gym before or right after work-out, on the sidelines during a time-out, or at home late at night—it’s available to you 24/7. All you have to do is turn it on, direct it to your sore area, and relax. Percussive therapy got you covered. If you have a muscle that is causing you pain, it is easier and cheaper to use our Fuego X9 massage gun than going to a physical therapist given the current pandemic situations. Your massage gun can be used across all large muscle groups, including those in your arms, legs, and back. 

  • What about the CONs or disadvantages of using a massage gun? 


    First, massage guns are quite expensive or can cost hundreds of dollars. While it is true that they are readily available online but as their popularity has increased, their price has been raised too. Of course, anything valuable comes with a price. Second, there is always the possibility of accidental injury because of misusing it thus harming one’s self. Third, although we agree that massage guns are an excellent device for soreness or damages, the use of massage guns may cause further injuries if not used properly. Lastly, since massage guns are a relatively new product and have a unique design, questions may arise and more data is needed to make a concrete statement on whether it works for everyone. While many have benefited from using massage guns, there’s always the chance that they do not offer any noticeable benefits to you.

    Which sports are massage guns useful for?

     

    You can use our Fuego X9 Massage gun after whichever sports you feel have stretched your muscles. Whether you’re an athlete constantly dealing with aches and pains or a regular person struggling with good-old-fashioned “text neck.” Even elderly people can use these guns to relax their muscles, if they have walked a long distance or have been standing for too long, or if they have overstretched.  

    You can even use our massage gun to relax your neck, shoulder, and back muscles after a long day sitting at your computer! This is especially important if you are working from home because of the current pandemic situations, and don’t have an ergonomic chair or office space available. 

    Here's the list of the sports that we think massage gun would be useful for:

    • Football
    • Cricket
    • Basketball
    • Golf
    • Baseball
    • Tennis
    • Swimming 
    • Boxing 
    • Volleyball
    • Weightlifting and Powerlifting 
    • HIIT
