One of the best birthday present I’ve ever acquired (assessment)
I’m not very large on celebrating birthdays, nor do my spouse and I are likely to bathe one another with items. Plenty of it has to do with the truth that we strive to not purchase issues needlessly, plus that I’m very specific about what I would like. Plenty of males are in all probability related: if we wished one thing, we’d have already got purchased it!
However, I don’t flip 35 ever yr, I suppose, and the truth that I’m again within the US whereas my spouse is abroad meant that I used to be stunned with a birthday present this yr. And it’s in all probability essentially the most life-changing present I’ve ever acquired (properly, apart from being born, I suppose).
So what was the present? Nicely, I’ve been a health club rat for many of my life. I’ve lifted weights commonly for about 18 years, with the vast majority of that being pretty constant and severe, and been out and in of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and MMA gyms for about 15 years. As I’ve gotten older and busier with different pursuits, I now not spend most of my waking hours both in a health club or referencing health club memes (“u mirin’ brah? DYEL? They mentioned I might develop into something I wished, so I turned a frog. FROGTECH”). I’ve additionally been understanding much less due to nearly 20 years of gathered aches and pains and accidents.
I’ve torn my left hip flexor as soon as and my proper twice with squats. I tore the cartilage in my proper AC joint (shoulder) wrestling with out warming up correctly. I’ve fairly fixed decrease again ache from years of heavy deadlifting and squats, plus the newly sedentary way of life I’ve needed to undertake courtesy of of SARS-CoV-2. My hip flexors and IT band are at all times tight and bothering me from fixed sitting, as properly. I attempt to do what I can with a lacrosse ball and hanging from my pull-up bar, however it’s simply not sufficient. And naturally, I in all probability have been complaining always in regards to the above-mentioned points for God-knows-how-long whereas additionally saying that massages/massagers had been each costly, so I feel my spouse in all probability simply had sufficient when she despatched me the Mighty Bliss(TM) cordless massager. To be exact (deep breath), the “MIGHTY BLISS
It’s pretty much as good a time as any to shamelessly re-live the times once I wasn’t a chunky blob. 🙂
So, after utilizing the Mighty Bliss massager for just a few days now, I can solely think about how significantly better my life might have been had I had this wand years in the past. It’s an entire game-changer for me, now.
As an alternative of making an attempt in useless to get my hip flexors with a lacrosse ball, I can effortlessly attain these knots with a pleasant 61 pulses/second of therapeutic vibration. I’m getting a bit forward of myself right here, although. First, let’s go over the necessary particulars of the Mighty Bliss:
- The wand sports activities a reasonably highly effective motor with speeds as much as 3600 RPM, managed through an adjustable knob that additionally doubles as an influence button.
- It weighs round three lbs, which is gentle sufficient to not tire out your arm when making an attempt to achieve spots in your again and apply stress for lengthy durations.
- Its inside li-ion batteries last as long as 120 minutes, and absolutely cost in 60.
The wand comes with 6 modular ideas, together with a tough plastic nub for muscle knots, gentle rubber flats,
By way of common high quality, the wand is solidly constructed from each plastic and rubber on the outside. It feels fairly strong and I by no means really feel prefer it’s in peril of breaking from dropping it or throwing it round (I wouldn’t do it for enjoyable, however nonetheless).
So, does it work? Like I hinted at earlier, this has been a game-changer for serving to me with common muscle tightness and knots in hard-to-reach locations. I discover that the broader and softer ideas work magic for my decrease again, whereas the onerous plastic nub has been nice for knots in my trapezius, shoulder blades, and hip flexors. Along with a lacrosse ball, I’ve in a position to get myself feeling looser, extra versatile, and extra snug on the whole than I can keep in mind within the final decade.
For those who’re pretty lively, have lots of aches, or have somebody in your life who matches both of these descriptors, I extremely suggest this as a present for your self or others. It’s not too costly, is solidly constructed, and has a number of attachments for nearly any use-case (no jokes, guys ( ͡⚆ ͜ʖ ͡⚆) ).
You gained’t remorse it.
