Pre-workout massage can do so much for athletes like you. But most people think of massage as a post-workout activity, to recover and relieve sore muscles. While percussive massage does, of course, optimize recovery, it’s also incredibly effective in loosening up muscles and ligaments, and getting the blood flowing PRIOR to your run or workout. In fact, it’s been proven to actually enhance performance.
Recent studies have shown that percussive massage can cause muscle tissue to contract more than 30 times more powerfully than normal voluntary contractions, thus delivering a host of oxygen and nutrients into the muscle and fascia tissues, quickly. This enables them to function at an optimal level. It also helps tremendously in reducing injury!
Additionally, percussive massage increases mobility and range of motion by releasing tension held in muscle attachments and tendons And finally, if you have scar tissue that is causing stiffness or pain, percussive massage will work to help break it up, and enable the muscle tissue to “breath.”
All types of athletes can benefit from pre-workout massage. From your professional elite level athletes down to the weekend warriors. And your weekend warriors may even need it more than anyone – because their muscles aren’t used as frequently. They may be tight and more primed for a tear or injury. That’s because when your body goes through a long period of rest – muscles tend to get tighter.
