Training Ball Provides Portable Massage and Workout Recovery
Hypersphere delivers targeted soft tissue therapy for soothing sore muscles
To some it may seem like a luxury: a soothing massage after a tough workout. But scientists believe that massage not only feels good, it helps muscles recover and strengthen faster after exercise. Of course, not everyone can afford a rubdown after every workout session. Many use foam rollers to achieve a similar result, while others make do with simple tennis balls. Hyperice, a company specializing in recovery and movement enhancement products, has released a device that adds vibration to the equation—essentially, a massage that you can take along in your workout bag. “We wanted to offer everyone, from professional athletes to everyday fitness enthusiasts, a convenient tool they can easily throw in bag and use anywhere,” says Hyperice founder Anthony Katz.
