PERCUSSIVE MASSAGE GUNS
The combination of running, swimming and cycling is hard on the body. Sore muscles, aching joints and tendons are part of being a triathlete.
With the MyoPro and MyoLite, you can melt away that pain and improve your mobility all while encouraging blood flow to speed up the recovery process.
To be the best, you have to use the best. We have taken this philosophy to the extreme with our range of the world's strongest pneumatic compression devices.
Rapidly flush lactic acid after long sessions, get fresh oxygenated blood to tired limbs and feel ready to get back training faster with the MyoPump and MyoAir.

THE SCIENCE OF MYOMASTERView all
A lesson in goal setting from an Olympic Triathlete
Our mission from day one has been to improve the performance of every athlete we meet - that’s why every month this year we are running ONE STEP CLOSER events exclusive to the MyoMaster community, to give you the chance to learn from and train with the best athletes in the UK. All with the aim of taking you ONE STEP CLOSER to your ultimate goal. Last Sunday we kicked off our first event with double Olympic medalist and Commonwealth Champion triathlete Alex Yee MBE for a masterclass in goal setting. The insight was invaluable and so for everyone who couldn’t attend, we wanted to share with you how an elite athlete sets their goals and what they do to make sure they achieve them. Set Your Big Goals First The very first step is knowing exactly what you want to achieve, sounds simple right? The trick though is being precise and understanding the implications of that goal. For Alex, his goal for 2023 is to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics, specifically securing the one guaranteed place on the team which is achieved by taking a podium finish at the Paris 2024 test event. The other two places in the team are awarded by recommendations from British Triathlon based on race performances throughout the year. In practical terms, Alex now can focus his attention on one specific race this season held on August 17th in Paris and that will take him a little under 2 hours to complete. Everything he does from now will be to achieve that result. A clearly defined and precise goal. Break Your Goals Down. The next step is to start working backwards from your big goal and breaking it down into smaller ones. A great way to do this is start with some established time frames, key dates or areas of your training that need attention, for example.. In order to achieve that podium finish on August 17th I need to: Run a PB time at a race on May 28th. Consistently hit target times during training block in June / July on the bike. Swim a PB time at a race on July 9th. From there you can break each one of these goals down even further into even smaller chunks that can assessed on monthly or even weekly levels, for example In order to Run a PB time at a race on May 28th I need to: Hit target times in training block throughout May. Improve on 5km pace by 3 seconds p/km in March Improve on 10km pace by 2 seconds p/km in April From there you can keep breaking your goals down until you get to small daily goals that will build up to you achieving your ultimate goal. Stay On Track And Perfect Your Processes. Setting your goals is just the beginning, the real work is staying on track and making sure all the processes you put in place move the needle in the right direction. For Alex, he builds standardised sessions, like a specific interval running session, into his training block that he repeats regularly to give him and his team a great indication of how he is performing and where he’s tracking against his performance targets. Now, Alex has been doing these sessions for years so he has great data on his improvements but it’s something we can all easily incorporate into our own training plans to ensure we’re staying on track. Then it’s all about perfecting your processes, from the time you’re eating meals before training to getting the right amount of sleep. Perfecting each one of these processes is a marginal gain but collectively together that can be the difference between achieving your goal or missing it. It’s Never Too Early To Start. A few hours after our session on Sunday, Alex flew out to Australia where he’ll be staying for the next 4 weeks with a primary focus on open water swimming. Why? Because in 5 years time at the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics the swim will be in open water, as will the 2032 games in Brisbane. Unlike a lot of the athletes from warmer climates who regularly swim in the sea as part of their training, Alex doesn’t get that opportunity here in the UK, and swimming with waves and tidal currents is a whole new skill that he’s already recognised he’s behind the curve on. When it comes to achieving big performance based goals, think big, start now.
The Shocking Effects Of Ice Baths On Muscle Growth
Ice baths, also known as cold water immersion, have been studied for their effects on growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels, as well as muscle hypertrophy. Studies have shown that a 10-minute immersion in cold water (14°C) significantly decreases GH and IGF-1 levels, which may impede muscle growth and repair. Additionally, cold water immersion may have a negative effect on muscle recovery and growth, as it decreases muscle protein synthesis. The decrease in GH and IGF-1 levels and muscle protein synthesis may reduce the effects of muscular hypertrophy.
3 QUESTIONS EVERY ATHLETE NEEDS TO ASK BEFORE BUYING THEIR NEXT CBD PRODUCT…
Every athlete is looking for the best natural ways to improve their recovery, enhance their performances and usually manage a bit of pain along the way. So when CBD products burst onto the scene following the removal of CBD from the World Anti-Doping Agencies banned substances list, a lot of athletes bought or tried CBD products and had incredible results.
Injuries and the Come Back Mentality
The day before I signed my first professional contract at Northampton Saints and fulfil my dream of becoming a professional rugby player I tore all the ligaments in my knee so badly the surgeon thought I would walk with a limp again for the rest of my life, let alone play rugby again.
