How to Massage the Deltoids

The Deltoids are a set of complex muscles that make up the outer shoulder. These muscles can become tight and uncomfortable after overhead exercises, such as chin ups. The MyoBuddy percussive massager can help elongate muscle fibers and increase blood flow to the deltoid muscles, aiding in healing and repair of muscle tissue.

About the “Delts”

In human anatomy, the deltoid muscle is the muscle forming the rounded contour of the shoulder. Anatomically, the muscles are made up of three distinct sets of fibers, though electromyography suggests that it consists of at least seven groups that can be independently coordinated by the central nervous system.[1]

It is also known as the common shoulder muscle, particularly in other animals such as the domestic cat. Deltoid is also further shortened in slang as “delt“.
