Awesome product bought it for my dad almost ended up keeping for my self, will buy another one soon

Great massager!

We love our new TimTam!! Easy to use & it works! My husband & I are in our early 50 & are in the food service industry. The TimTam helps with fatigued & overworked muscles. Extremely pleased with it!

Thankful for you and your massager.

Definitely worth every moment. Thank you for this clever build, design, and everything that come with it. As an active family with four little ones, there isn’t too much time to relax, and when we do, it’s with the Tim Tam. Haha.

All New Power Massager

Power Massager Pro

Great product

Early Remarks

We have not used it extensively enough to give a confident star rating. However early indicators show it to be effective at relieving certain trigger points as well as relieving tight or tense muscles

Power Massager Pro

TimTam Pro

Love everything about this product. The different speeds are great. Love the heated tip and all the attachments.

Great gift

I bought it for my 17 year old son who is very serious about lifting! He uses it daily and loves it!

Love the All New Tim Tam!

I train often, getting older and I've heard Coach Firas talk about this for a long time. I do quite a bit of myofascial release already and this is easily the most effective tool. Love the portability and ease of use. I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel better and help recovery, not only from training but everyday activities.

Game changer

Hans down the most powerful and effective power massager I have experienced. Using it has mitigated down time and voided injury on multiple occasions 10/10 would highly recommend

Niicee

I use this every time I go to jiu jistu class and it does serve me very well. :))

Great product

Strong massager
Very strong and somewhat deep massage

Awesome machine

Worth the money. I use mine regularly for knots, tight spots or just to get the blood flowing in an area of my body. Happy I have it!

Amazing

Don't have to go anywhere to get a massage and I can hit all the spots I need by myself.

Awesome

Great machine for post workouts and long work days. It’s hard to get my shoulder myself, but my husband helps with my hamstrings and back. Would recommend!

Best thing I bought this year

Read reviews from many models, so glad I picked the right one for me. Amazing stall pressure, good battery, makes a little noise. So happy i bought it

great tasting protein!

Mixes really well with walmondmilk and pb2 powder, my favorite go to snack or post training shake!

Perfect late night focus and clarity!

Love this product! Clean mental focus/energy without jitters. For international sales, this helps me with work late hours but does not keep me awake at night.

A Healthy Necessity

I take fish oil to keep my body healthy and feeling its best. Consistency is key with this. My joints feel great and inflammation is down! Plus, fish oil is quality stuff with no fishy aftertaste or burps that you normally get with other supplements.

Great Focus!!

I use this supplement to keep me focused for work later in the day. It is just the boost of mental clarity I need to get through that mid-day fogginess, without taking some other artificial energy that will keep tossing and turning all night.

Must-Have for Recovery

This stuff is amazing! I loaded my first two bottles in one month as recommended and my sleep/recovery quality seemed to drastically improve. I train around 6x per week and Power + Performance really helps with the heavy loads on my knees and shoulders.

Great Taste!

Great, natural flavor! Dissolves in my morning coffee with a few stirs and the chocolate gives it an amazing mocha flavor. So glad I was introduced to this protein!

Cardio is a great way for someone looking to improve their endurance, cardiovascular health, or shed some extra weight. The immediate and long term benefits are AMAZING! Years of studies have shown that aerobic exercise is great for mood, heart health, weight management, cellular health, and more.¹ ² ³ In fact, beginners tend to experience the most improvements among all levels of fitness. But what happens after time passes with the same cardio routine? Do you lose motivation, hit a plateau, increase the volume, or simply just get bored? In most cases, it’s all of the above. 

Let’s say for example you just begin jogging for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week -- minimum recommendation for aerobic exercise per week, according to the American College of Sports Medicine and National Institute of Health. You may be a bit sore in the beginning, however the rush of endorphins keeps you motivated and feeling accomplished once you get in the groove. In addition, you may see improvement in weight, energy, and stress levels. But after a month or so of the same routine, you start to notice your weight loss and/or performance hits a plateau. So you start to jog longer each day, but at the same pace. Now for a competitive runner, that sounds great! But, not so much for other athletes looking to burn some fat or reach peak wellness. Although it feels like you should be inching closer to your goals because you are working longer, that plateau just keeps stopping you in your tracks. This is due to your body’s ability to adapt in response to repetitive stress.


The ultimate objective of the body is to maintain homeostasis and operate efficiently. Although it’s a good kind of stress, your body will adapt to the same intensity and aerobic regimen over time. This adaptation allows for the body to use less energy in response to the aerobic stress, resulting in lower caloric expenditure and the perception of an easier jogging session. This same principle applies to all physical activities and serves, in part, as the foundation for programming and progression. Studies have shown that increasing the duration of aerobic exercise for trained individuals will not spark the magnitude of benefits experienced as a beginner. Interestingly, increasing aerobic time, at the same intensity, could actually work negatively against your body. That being said, the objective should not be to solely focus on increasing the time (volume) of the aerobic exercise, but rather change the type of exercise and/or intensity. 

Cardiovascular exercise, or aerobic activity, is essentially any planned activity that raises the heart rate to a certain level to compensate for oxygen usage in an active body. There are many types of aerobic activities, however the most common are: running, jogging, swimming, and biking. All of which are great substitutes for each other providing a range of different benefits. Some are  low-impact for the joints, while others are great for activation and using multiple muscle groups. The variance in these movements are a great way to switch things up on your body and push past a plateau. 


 Variations to Consider

Intensity

Changing intensity is a great way to progress. It triggers the body to respond to a different, unknown, type of stress; thus providing benefits similar to when you first began working out. Some people don’t have access to multiple aerobic exercise, so here are some example of walking/running variations:

  • Switching from walking to jogging; or jogging to running
  • Running outside instead of on a treadmill - your body works harder to propel itself forward rather than the treadmill moving underneath you
  • Walking/jogging/running on an incline
  • Interval Sprints

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is a great variation to “shock” your body. It forces the body to be under a maximal aerobic stress for a short duration helping increase performance and metabolism. In fact, you can reap the same benefits and burn just as many calories, from a shorter session of HIIT, that you would from a longer steady-state cardio session. 

Cross Training

Continuous cardio-only training may not be the best long-term plan to improve metabolism, weight, and overall health. Neglecting resistance training can result in  joint issues, decreased metabolism, and lower energy. Muscle mass directly affects metabolism, so if you are doing loads of cardio to lose weight then you may want to find ways to incorporate resistance exercises. Cross training is a great solution for both problems. High intensity power and strength movement, with little rest time, can improve muscle development while elevating the heart rate to “cardio levels”. Try doing a circuit including movements like burpees, box jumps, pull ups, and sprints; resting a few minutes between each circuit. 

 

Take Home Message

Change is good in regards to training. The whole point is to acclimate your body with movements and physical stress that are both known and unknown. The shock of keeping your body guessing through exercise variance is what helps build it stronger to prevent injury and exhaustion. Keep in mind, this usually is paired with a few days of soreness, similar to how one feels as a beginner. That being said, recovery is of large importance in order to prevent the kind of stress that might push your body past its breaking point. Make sure you take some time to allow your body to  “get right”,  hydrate, refuel, and prepare for the next workout. Check out the  PowerMassagers and  Topicals by TimTam for all the gear you need to take your recovery to the next level.

The bottom line is, cardiovascular health is important for everyone. Whether untrained, trained, or elite level in aerobic training, it can be highly beneficial to switch up your routine every once in a while. Additionally, a switch to some cross training or sport movements can be crucial if you are not already including weight bearing exercise into your regimen. If not for performance or plateauing purposes, try different exercises simply for your own sanity. Incorporating enjoyable exercises into your regimen can stimulate the brain and improve overall mental health if you find that running at the same pace, on that same treadmill, staring at that same wall, and listening to that same music is causing you to lose motivation. Finding something that works best for you, while also enjoyable, is the best way to ensure self efficacy.
