Episode 70: Massage guns/Paul Larsen on HIIT

In this episode:

In episode 66 I covered the benefits of massage as well as the risks if used too close to an event. On this episode I look at what has been done to evaluate the use of massage guns and vibration massage tools. Are they helpful? Are they any different than standard massage? Plus a conversation with High Intensity Interval Training expert and consultant Paul Larsen. He literally wrote the book on how to use this popular modality of training to get stronger and faster. He joins me to discuss the methods, the evidence to back them up and how triathletes can use HIIT to get faster in all three disciplines.
