Why the Power Massager Works
How Professional Baseball Players Benefit from the Power Massager
It’s clear that the Power Massager lives up to its name, bringing serious, powerful recovery massages to athletes at all levels. But let’s dive a little deeper than looking at what the Power Massager does and take a look at the effects it has on your body.
We spoke to Nick Decker - 2018 draft pick for the Boston Red Sox - about the incredible benefits of the Power Massager. “The TimTam Power massager has been a game changer for my recovery,” he said, “It can get the spots that a foam roller might not be able to.” The Power Massager is great to reaching targeted muscle areas like shoulders, pecs, glutes, quads, and more with precision, making it easy to break up knots and prevent bursas.
Decker went on to say, “[The Power Massager] breaks up all the lactic acid and gets real deep in the tissues that build up after working out.” This focus on lactic acid breakdown can assist in reducing recovery times by up to 30%, allowing you to bring your A-game day after day. This quick recovery, as Decker says, is crucial for a long season as a top performer in the league. The massage provided by the Power Massager can help you grow as an athlete with every treatment, with the regular deep tissue massage proven to increase performance by 2-5%.
Athletes, following treatment from the Power Massager, are less sore the following day and are able to put 100% into their workouts every day. Whether you’re looking to strengthen your arms for improved throwing or doing speed training to improve baserunning and fielding, the Power Massager is there to relieve pain every step of the way.
Best Uses for the Power Massager
How MLB Players Use the Power Massager to Up their Game
The Power Massager is a great tool for baseball players to utilize during every part of their season. During preseason, strength and conditioning takes a serious toll on the body. By Opening Day, athletes are in tip-top shape, but the tough workouts don’t end. The Power massager helps apply recovery massage to tired, growing muscles to prevent the athlete from feeling burnt out the next day.
During practices and on game days, athletes use the Power Massager as a great initial warmup. Notably, pitchers spend time with the trainer loosening and warming up upper back and arm muscle to prevent injury while pitching. Because the Power Massager is perfect for bringing along to the game, players can even utilize the Power massager to help stay loose and ready in the bullpen on game days.
After a tough training day or game, athletes - either with an athletic trainer or at home - will use the power massager to relieve acute muscle aches from overuse. Fielders often focus on sore legs and glutes with the Power Massager, allowing them to utilize a full range of motion the next day. The Power Massager is also great for a relaxing full-body massage after games, making it a great tool to keep at home or in your bag while traveling to big games.
Keeping athletes as fresh and ready to go as they are on opening day isn’t always easy. However, the recovery tools from TimTam are sure to make sure that you’re making the most out of every hour spent in the gym and every minute you spend recovering.
