Whether you’ve just had a hard run or are training several days a week for an upcoming race, having a solid recovery routine is essential. After all, you’ll only be putting yourself at risk for injury if you don’t take care of your post-run body. If a percussion massager isn’t already part of your recovery, consider this our campaign to get you to include one in your R & R regimen (especially now since there’s a sale on one of our favorite brands).
The Hypervolt Bluetooth Massage Gun from Hyperice is currently available on Amazon for $199, down 20 percent from its original price of $249. The 2.5-pound device has three speeds and five interchangeable head attachments. According to Hyperice, the brand's patented Quiet Glide technology allows the massage gun to be almost silent, with reviewers calling it "whisper-quiet" and "way quieter" than expected. It’s battery-powered, has a two-hour battery life, and it’s TSA-approved for your carry-on.
Thanks to its Bluetooth connectivity, you don't have to simply rely on trial and error to figure out how to best ease your aches and pains. Instead, you can connect your Hypervolt to the Hyperice App, which has warm-up and recovery plans to help guide you through relieving your muscles.
Hyperice released the Hypervolt 2 and Hypervolt 2 Pro in September 2021, making some significant upgrades on the original, including an improved design and reduced weight. However, if you’re fine with not having the latest model, you’ll get quite the deal with the first iteration of the Hypervolt Bluetooth; the Bluetooth-enabled Hypervolt 2 retails for $299 and you currently have the opportunity to get the original for $199.
The brand has a full roster of professional athletes, many of whom are investors, including 2016 track and field Olympian Colleen Quigley, 2020 mountain bike Olympian Kate Courtney, Peloton instructor Robin Arzón, NFL players Patrick Mahomes and Christian McCaffrey, and more. Hey, if it’s good enough for Quigley, it’s got to be good enough for us.
