“Using vibration and percussion technology post workout is a great way to help remove lactic acid build up from the training session.

“The regular use of Percussion devices can encourage muscle tissue relaxation, increase blood flow and circulation as well as increase the flexibility of muscles. We would recommend three times a day for 15 minutes.
