As an athlete, you’re constantly looking for ways to take your game to the next level. You look for new workouts to help tone muscles, new diets to maximize your performance, and new equipment to help you train like the pros. At TimTam, we have the same mindset; we’re constantly looking for ways to create better recovery products that help you feel and perform your best day after day. That’s why we created the Polish Light: the tiny vibrating massage ball that rethinks the standard ball massage with four different vibration speeds and added heat application. While the Polish Light is excellent on its own, we’ve put together a list of a few accessories that will help take your recovery with the Polish Light to the next level.
Make Your Back and Shoulder Rolling More Comfortable
Every athlete knows that stretching and proper recovery is key to staying strong and making your workouts count. Not only does taking the time to stretch and roll your muscles with a vibrating massage ball help relax sore muscles, but aids in myofascial release that can help boosts in flexibility, agility, and acceleration. To make these stretching and recovery sessions a little more comfortable, we recommend purchasing a yoga mat. An easy purchase at a large box store or online, yoga mats are portable and versatile. Not only is a yoga mat a great item to have to help with stretching, but they’re great for camping, taking to the beach, or for everyday use with kids or pets.
A yoga mat is especially great to have on hand when using aa Polish Light because it makes targeting your back and shoulders more comfortable. To roll your back and shoulders with a Polish Light, we recommend lying on top of the vibrating massage ball on the ground, controlling your pressure and motion with leverage on your legs and elbows. Keep your elbows off hard, dirty floors by rolling on top of a yoga mat, or simply use it to continue rolling your body in comfort.
The Perfect Complement to Your Polish Light from the TimTam Power Series
The Polish Light is great for massaging sore muscles, targeting pressure points, and aiding in myofascial release. There’s no one product that can do it all, which is why we recommend pairing your Polish Light recovery with a Pulse Massager. The Pulse Massager is the easy to use TENS device that can both treat and relieve muscle pain. Controlled via an app, the Pulse Massager has sixteen different treatment programs and fifteen intensity levels that deliver wireless electrotherapeutic pulses to the body. These pulses interrupt pain signals sent from the brain, allowing you to experience more pain-free workouts.
A great way to combine the Polish Light and the Pulse Massager is to end a workout by rolling calves, back muscles, and more with the Polish Light. Once you’re finished your recovery roll, use the pulse massager to treat and relieve lingering pain. After this awesome recovery program, you’ll be back to training with optimum performance in no time.
Boost Oxygen Flow to Recovering Muscles
There are endless benefits to using compression as a recovery tactic. Not only does rolling on a vibrating massage ball compress and relieve sore muscles, but it increases blood flow to the muscles following a tough workout. Rolling compresses that fascia that allows you to strike faster and perform with maximum flexibility, making it key to staying ready to play at all times. How can you continue the benefits of long after rolling with the Polish Light? Try out a pair of compression pants. Compression pants increase blood flow and oxygenation to the muscles, making them great to wear after a workout -- or if you’re really working on recovery, to bed after a tough practice or game.
