Stacking has been around since before peanut butter and jelly. Stacking is when you combine two or more things to create something better. In this case, heat or cold stacked with percussion massage via the new Hot/Cold Ball attachment head for the JAWKU Muscle Blaster V2.
Heating the Hot/Cold Ball
Heat therapy improves circulation and blood flow to a particular area due to increased temperature. Increasing the temperature of the afflicted area even slightly can soothe discomfort and increase muscle flexibility. Heat therapy can relax and soothe muscles and heal damaged tissue.
Applying heat and massage to an inflamed area will dilate the blood vessels, promote blood flow, and help sore and tightened muscles relax. Improved circulation can help eliminate the buildup of lactic acid waste occurs after some types of exercise.
The benefits of the heating the Hot/Cold Ball attachment head of the V2 Muscle Blaster can include:
Freezing the Hot/Cold Ball
On the other hand, cold therapy can also aid in recovery. This leads to better gains, faster improvement, and can be the difference between reaching and not reaching your goals. The more effectively you recover, the quicker your back training.
Looking for cool, quick recovery? Freezing the Hot/Cold attachment head of the V2 Muscle Blaster combines percussive massage with cold therapy for faster recovery. The real magic of the cold attachment head is that it is not freezing when against the skin… I would call it chilled.
The chilling effects have been known to have the following benefits:
From a practical standpoint, there may also be a benefit in using a hot head first and then following up with the cold.
