With 56 lbs of power, the B37S provides excellent stall force for its size. Compared to the previous model, Ekrin has improved the progressive power system, allowing a more powerful performance at each of the 5 speed levels.

The percussion range of 1750-2400 RPM is controlled with 5 level options found at the top of the device. Whilst this is low, it isn’t a problem due to the huge amplitude.

What Are the Benefits of Using Massage Guns?

Here are just some of the benefits of using high intensity massage guns: 

Muscle recovery

Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) following a heavy session is common. Massaging the sore area using a suitable massage gun can help to break up the muscle fibers, and relax the tight muscle area, significantly reducing DOMS. 

Improved Sports Performance

With massage guns helping to reduce DOMS, prevent injury, and increase blood flow, this makes it easier to train and perform at a higher level more consistently. 

Rehabilitation

Massage guns are highly effective at providing rehabilitation therapy for people with muscle injuries. With the percussion facilitating improved circulation to the muscle area, the healing process is improved. 

Injury prevention 

Massage guns provide a great way to wake the muscles up before an exercise session or sports performance. They help to raise muscle temperature, therefore reducing the chance of injuries. 

WBCM Oleksiy Torokhtiy Massage gun

Improved blood flow

Efficient blood circulation is important to ensure good health. By improving blood circulation with a massage gun, your body can transport vital nutrients and oxygen to where it’s needed. 

Tips From the Champ

When buying a massage gun, choose something that feels comfortable, but that can also give an effective massage. Avoid anything that does not have adjustable speed settings because you need to be able to customize the pressure according to what feels comfortable to you. It’s also good to have a choice between several different massage heads so you can target different muscle groups (and an ergonomic handle is always a nice bonus). Also, make sure the motor is quiet, or your massage will be anything but relaxing.

What to Look For in Massage Guns?

Here are some of the most important factors to look for when buying a powerful percussion massager: 

Power

Power refers to the amount of stall force the massage gun can generate, which is usually given in lbs. If you're need to get deep into a muscle area, check the power of the massage gun to see if it will suit your needs. 

Battery Life

Massage guns are designed to be used as wireless devices on the go, whether it’s at home or in the gym. To minimize charging frequency, look for a gun with a battery life of at least 60 minutes. 

Tips From the Champ

Most massage guns are designed with different speed levels. This is shown in revolutions per minute (RPM), which refers to the number of times the massage gun can hit your muscle in 1 minute. Look for a gun that has a decent range of speed levels to select from, so that you're able to alter it based on your preference.

Durability

A massage gun is designed to provide continuous percussion forces, with a large amount of vibration during use. This means the gun needs to be durable - able to withstand repeated impact without losing its performance or structural integrity. 

WBCM Oleksiy Torokhtiy hand Massage

Noise Level

Massage guns produce different levels of noise depending on the motor used and possible added features. If you’re primarily using the gun in a smaller space or around others, look for a device that produces less noise. 

Price/ Quality

Consider the construction materials used and added features, both of which can increase the overall gun quality. Integrative LED screens, lightweight designs, and Bluetooth compatibility are just a few of the things to bear in mind. Check the features and quality concerning the product price. 

How to Use Massage Guns Correctly?

To prevent unnecessary injuries, check the information below on correct massage gun usage

  • Attach the massage head - Before turning it on, attach the correct massage head, making sure it’s firmly locked in place. 
  • Turn the device on - Most guns work by long-pressing a single button. Once on, you should see the device light up. 
  • Choose the correct speed - A good way to build up is by starting with the lowest speed and gradually increasing it.
  • Place the head against the muscle - Slowly bring the gun towards the muscle and apply pressure.
  • Move the head along the muscle - slowly move the gun along the muscle, targeting specific areas if needed. Don’t go too fast or press too hard. 
  • Most massage guns come with instruction manuals specific to the brand or device. Make sure to read this thoroughly beforehand.


FAQs

Are More Expensive Massage Guns Worth It?

With the benefits of regularly using massage guns becoming more well-known, investing money into a high-quality gun is definitely worth it. With a wide range of product prices available, there is always a suitable gun choice for your budget. 

What Is Better Than a Massage Gun?

Other suitable recovery techniques include using a foam roller or getting a sports massage from a trained professional. Each method has its own benefits and the suitable use depends on your personal preference and situation.

Can You Overdo a Massage Gun?

If you hit a muscle area for too long, it can result in soreness, bruising, and tighter muscles. Make sure to only use it as needed and not for too long.

Summary - Which Heavy Duty Massage Gun Is the Best?

The Ekrin B37S Massage Gun is my top pick for the most powerful massage gun choice. With 80 lbs of stall force and 16 mm amplitude, it provides an excellent heavy-duty massage. Even with the larger force, it’s really quiet and comes in a multi-compartment carry case.
