Whether you have just started an exercise routine or you're a seasoned gym bunny, you'll know the biggest factor that prevents you from fitting in more exercise is sore muscles from your previous session. These aches and pains are referred to as delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS.
There's an answer to getting rid of these aches and pains quickly and efficiently: a portable massage gun. Hyperice is one of the most popular brand out there, and for good reason: with Quiet Glide tech and its ability to attack deep tissue problems, the massage gun can power away the stubbornness of knots.
Check out this Best Buy price on one of Hyperice's most popular models, the Hypervolt in silver and black, for just $299.99 – saving you a cool $50 (opens in new tab).

Best Buy are stocking one of the best new fitness tools on the market. The Hyperice Hypervolt gets rid of aches and pains with three speed settings delivering up to 3200 percussions per minute. With Quick Glide technology and swappable heads, this is said to be " quietest, most advanced percussion massage device on planet earth", just the thing to pummel away DOMS.
The popularity of these Hyperice portable massage devices showcases how into recovery and mobility the fitness world has become. Muscular pain is preventable, easily treatable and sorting it can vastly improve our quality of life. It's no wonder these devices are so popular.
Another great way to prevent muscular pain after a workout is by incorporating a thorough stretching routine. Not only does it alleviate muscular pain (essential alongside those pounding Hyperice sessions) according to studies (opens in new tab) but it improves your strength and mobility in later life.
A study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE (opens in new tab) promoted the importance of mobility training. Your muscles naturally contract as you age, so dedicated training to lengthen them results in better quality of life, whether you're rising from a chair to make a cup of tea, or going for a walk in the park.
