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. Check out these Target prices on two of Hyperice's most popular products below:

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 but it improves your strength and mobility in later life.
A study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE 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.
