Massage guns are starting to become one of the most popular trends for athletes and fitness fanatics. But with so many products being oversized and hard to travel take them with you. Pulseroll however has created a brilliant solution with their Pulseroll Mini Massage Gun.
In this review, I’ll provide you with my own personal experience using the product, how it will actually help you, and what you will get.
How do Pulseroll massage guns help you?
As mentioned, massage guns have recently really become very popular and are definitely an investment to make, if you are planning on better muscle recovery after training.
Much like a massage or even a foam roller, it helps to target deep tissue muscle by repeatedly moving in and out through high-frequency and repetitive strokes. This is also called percussion massage therapy.
A massage gun aims to reduce inflammation by flushing extracellular fluids such as lactic acid in the muscle tissue.
Sports like boxing which I take part in can be very intense. Your body can really get worn down due to the amount of aerobic training you will be doing. This is why you see so many of the top boxers like Anthony Joshua using products like this to help their recovery.
My experience using the Pulseroll Mini Massage gun
Overall I really like the portable design, which makes it a lot easier to travel with and just use. A lot of massage guns can be huge in size and can be heavy enough to hold up after a hard session in the gym.
The design also makes it easy to hold onto and use on muscle groups from different angles.
I also like how the mini massage gun comes with 4 attachment heads and is easy to interchange them. They of course have different uses. This includes
- Round massage head – For full body massage
- Pneumatic head – For Soft tissue and full body massage
- Spinal Head – For Spinal stimulating massage
- Bullet Head – For pain point massage
If you are a complete beginner to using massage guns – Do not worry! Pulseroll provides a detailed instruction manual on what heads to use and which muscle groups to use them on.
To turn on and off the massage gun, it is through a touch feature at the bottom. Which takes about 2-4 seconds to hold down.
You also need to use this to change the speed setting which is displayed here too.
The mini massage gun also comes with 4 vibration levels from 1800 RPM to 3000 RPM. Which is strong enough percussion for most I believe. Once again if use the booklet provided it can help guide you here. Or you can watch the videos on YouTube for further guidance.
I personally like using the mini massage gun after training as this when best to use to help reduce lactic acid and toxin buildup in your muscles. Especially for boxing training which can really fatigue your whole body at times. Find out more here about this area.
For the mini massage, the battery life ranges from 2.5 – 6hrs depending on what speed setting you are using. This isn’t too much of a big issue for me. As you can charge after each use.
Overall a very handy device to have if you are in the gym a lot or lead an active lifestyle.
