Extremely beneficial for my needs as a Female Masters Olympic Weightlifter
Honestly, I give this product a "thumbs up". I did an enormous amount of research before deciding on this particular product. I trawled through Facebook posts of comparisons of several massage guns and a huge percentage of them I knew were not going to be beneficial for my needs; they were just too strong and "assaultive".
The Hyperice Hypervolt has a more percussive impact, with a precise pinpoint "feel" and its three levels of speed are absolutely perfect for my body, kneading the muscle body sufficiently without causing discomfort and/or injury, and achieving a thorough and overall treatment. It is more like a gliding effect. As it says on the box "quiet glide technology"
I spoke in-depth with my sports physiotherapist and my weightlifting coach before purchase and was given a wealth of advice on what I needed as an individual and instruction in the proper use to get optimum results and I would advise everyone to do the same. To be informed is to be empowered.
I use it before training as part of my stretch and warm-up process and any time after for promotion of elongated and relaxed muscles.
At first I thought it was a little heavy in the hand, but once in use this is not an issue. In fact, I think it is one of the lightest around.
Oh, and, hey, everyone, it is really quiet .. and I mean quiet. Use it while watching Netflix ..
Price-wise - it is comparable.
I am very satisfied with my purchase. I love it.
