The time you spend working out seems to get all the glory when it comes to your fitness plan, but it shouldn’t be! Knowing what to do before a workout will help you adjust your routine to affect your growth and outcomes.

Read on to know about how a massage gun works, how it can help relax your muscles and what a massage gun targets!

Why Include Using a Massage Gun for Your Pre-Workout

Workout is the easiest component of a fitness plan. It is important that your body is prepared for the task and has enough energy as you get ready to tackle your toughest workouts. A pre-workout routine might help by increasing strength and power.

Using a percussive massage gun, such as the RENPHO Massage Gun, is one of the best ways to warm up your muscles. A massage gun will help you relax tight body parts and can increase your range of motion.

How a massage gun works:

- Allows for a deeper level of muscle release

- Uses speed, force and depth to target deep tissue muscles

- Provides both vibration and the percussive massage that can be applied to different parts of the body

The RENPHO Massage Gun can rev up your muscles and give you extra energy before and even during and after working out.

Massage Gun for Muscle Activation

A massage gun can be used before or during exercise to improve your workout performance, although it is most commonly utilized after a workout.

Using a massage gun can assist your muscles to become more active and extend your range of motion, which improves performance and recovery and lowers the chance of injury because you’re increasing blood flow.

Get your body ready for exercise or any activities. Spend no more than 30 to 60 seconds massaging your muscles that need to be warmed up.

You can also use a massage gun for:

Muscle reactivation during a workout- When muscle cramps or tiredness threaten to cut short your training, your muscles reactivate. Massage your muscles for about 2 to 5 minutes, depending on how much time you think you need.

Muscle recovery after a workout- Spend 2 to 5 minutes with your massage gun to help relax your body muscles after being active to relieve tension and soreness.

You can definitely use a massage gun in addition to a balanced diet for a number of wonderful advantages. Working your body muscles, it would help reduce some of the stress you have.

Where Should The Massage Gun Hit?


Fascia is a special type of connective tissue. It is an elastic mesh of connective tissue covering muscles, internal organs, nerves and blood vessels.

The fascia all over the body is connected to form a fascia network. Normal fascia can slide back and forth between muscle tissues smoothly, transmitting energy and assisting activity.

When a muscle is injured, the fascia covering it needs to be properly relaxed. The fascia is not easy to palpate, and may not be able to be massaged by a general masseuse. Using a vibration massage gun can effectively massage this fascia and achieve the desired effect.

Trigger Points

Trigger points are muscular tight bands. They are, as the name implies, places that are prone to severe pain. In addition to the pain induced by pushing forcefully, activated trigger points can occasionally be accompanied by transfer pain, which means that the trigger point is painful not only in one location but also in another. Other regions of the body are also impacted, causing pain.

Trigger point discomfort can develop chronic and even compromise muscle strength if not handled appropriately. Massage guns, on the other hand, are well-suited to the treatment of trigger points.

Large muscle groups

The most suitable for relaxing with a massage gun are the large muscle groups, such as the muscles of the buttocks, thighs, calves, etc., because the muscle layers of the large muscle groups are thicker and more able to withstand high-energy vibration stimulation, it is less likely that the vibration force is too large or improper use of vibration position, etc., can cause muscle injury.
