Best Muscle Recovery Resources

WAVE5 has a great muscle recovery blog that covers topics ranging from trigger point therapy devices (like massage guns) to pain point "pulsing" instead of foam rolling.

Takeaways from the blog:

  1. Pulsing a targeted muscle may work better than foam rolling. They made an app to show you the exact pulsing path.
  2. You should perform muscle recovery techniques slowly.
  3. Muscle rolling doesn’t need to be painful to work.
  4. Target muscle groups can be addressed from multiple angles for full recovery.
  5. Allow tissue to adapt to pressure over time (trigger point therapy) for best results.
  6. Targeting deep tissue from various attack angles can lead to more muscle hydration and relief.
