Since launching their brand and flagship massage gun early this August, HYDRAGUN has been well-received by the sports community in Singapore as a handy sports recovery solution not just for professional sports athletes but also individuals who enjoy working out during their free time.
Unlike other brands of massage tools, HYDRAGUN aims to be a quality tool that provides you with the best relief which is worth the investment you’ve made. Read on to find out more about the HYDRAGUN.
WHAT IS A HYDRAGUN?
HYDRAGUN is the first percussive massage gun of its kind that works as a post-workout tool for massaging tired muscles and to reduce the impact of delayed onset muscle soreness. It has been designed specifically to provide speedy and effective muscle pain relief not just for high-performance athletes but also individuals that engage in intense workout sessions.
As a massage gun, the HYDRAGUN uses percussive massage, a form of vibratory massage that induces rapid blood flow to the soft tissues of ligaments, tendons and muscles throughout the body.
WHAT MAKES HYDRAGUN DIFFERENT?
💪 Most massage guns are powered at 2800 RPM while the HYDRAGUN uses an impactful 3200 RPM high torque motor for a more focused, effective and soothing percussive massage
💪 The HYDRAGUN is built with the quietest magnet-based motor which is no louder than your fridge, giving you the ability to still hold a conversation or binge-watch Netflix while using it
💪 HYDRAGUN has an aerospace-grade aluminium body which is not only durable but is able to withstand drops while the handle is wrapped with nanoscale silicone to give you a non-slip premium grip that does not leave a sticky residue from your post-workout sweat
💪 Unlike other massage guns with a standard 3-speed setting, the HYDRAGUN has 6-speed settings catering to a range of pain thresholds and soreness that can reduce any risk for users who already have microtrauma injuries
💪 The HYDRAGUN comes with 6 attachment heads — 2 of these are made of steel, making it easy for the Hydragun to glide smoothly over your clothes
💪 Weighing a little over 1kg, the HYDRAGUN is one of the lightest massage guns around
💪 While other massage guns may offer just about an hour of battery life, the HYDRAGUN is equipped with a longer-lasting battery life that averages at 3 hours on one charge
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU USE HYDRAGUN?
The HYDRAGUN is designed to be used on skeletal muscles that help you to move such as the muscles in the neck, shoulders, lats, chest, triceps, biceps, thighs and calves, and relieve soreness that you might experience from any activity or exertion.
Ideal for use after an intense workout, the HYDRAGUN delivers a powerful, pummelling action of 3200 RPM on your sore muscles to increase blood flow and shorten any delayed onset of muscle soreness. The increase in blood flow carries more oxygen and nutrients that are essential in repairing muscle fibres and relieves the muscle pains you’re experiencing, speeding up muscle recovery.
WAYS YOU CAN USE HYDRAGUN
During Warm Up
Warm-up exercises often include dynamic stretches to prepare your body for a workout but sometimes, doing these on cold muscles can lead to possible pain and injury. With the HYDRAGUN, you can help to prep these muscles to prevent excessive overstretching by working the gun over the various muscle group for no more than 30 seconds on a low setting.
During a Workout
Using the HYDRAGUN in-between sets for 15 seconds on a low setting can help to keep muscle fatigue at bay. The boost in blood flow means a possible improvement in performance and efficiency as you will no longer have to feel sore and achy while you are in the middle of a workout.
During Cool Downs
Cooling down is crucial to every workout session. However, it tends to be one of the more neglected aspects of exercise. In addition to doing some light cardio and static stretches to bring your heart rate back to normal, the HYDRAGUN can provide immediate relief and prevent the onset of post-workout soreness.
Gently using the HYDRAGUN over the muscles that were used for 2 minutes on a low setting helps to break down the formation of lactic acid in the muscles, so that inflammation and fatigue go down quicker.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
The HYDRAGUN retails at $399 and is available for purchase online from the official HYDRAGUN website. Each HYDRAGUN comes with an 18 months warranty from the date of purchase and a 30 days love it or return it guarantee. Orders made in Singapore will typically reach within 1 to 2 business days.
