Here’s how to safely and effectively use a massage gun on your legs for recovery, rehab, or pure enjoyment. Massage guns can be great after a leg workout, running, or cycling for recovery. And they’re very helpful when you want to rehab knee pain, hamstrings, or issues in the quads & calves. Both rehab and recovery usually involve light repetitious movement of affected muscles, so in this video I show you how to use a massage gun WITH muscle movement to maximise its effect.

MUSCLE GUN TIPS & TIMES:
• A good general rule is to not spend more than 2 minutes in an area with a massage gun.
• Don’t use percussion massage over areas of inflammation, like tendinitis, or bursitis.
• And stick to a foam ball tip, or an arc-shaped tip, because small plastic tips can bruise the soft tissue
WHERE NOT TO USE A MASSAGE GUN:
• Avoid the bony point of the hip at the side of the pelvis because you don’t want to irritate the bursa there.
• Keep away from any other bony parts like the knees, the bony front of your pelvis (ASIS), and the heels.
• Steer clear of the groin, the backs of the knees, and to the sides of the Achilles tendon.
