After a long day or a hard workout, here are five areas you can use a percussion massage tool (like the Hyperice Hypervolt) to help relax and recover.
The areas are: calf (gastrocnemius), thigh (including the IT band), hip flexor (Iliopsoas), and neck/shoulder (trapezius).
You can massage the areas in general until you find a tight, painful or trouble spot. When you have isolated that spot, hold the tool on it for at least 30 seconds to allow the muscle to relax and let go.
