How to Use the Massage Gun on the Quads:

How to Position Yourself

  • Long-sitting
    • Legs out straight and sitting upright, the knees can be slightly bent
  • Sitting in a chair
    • This puts the muscle on a bit of stretch so could be a little more uncomfortable

Which Attachment to Use

We prefer these two attachments, as it can spread the pressure and make the massage more comfortable:

  • The roundhead

Try the round-head attached on the massage gun, to target the quads, as it spreads the pressure out.

  • The flat shape

What should be the setting

  • 8-10 speed (our massage gun goes from 1-20)
    • Remember, if this speed is too uncomfortable, change the speed to suit your preference

How long should I use it for

  • 1-2 minutes

Which area to focus on

  • Front of the thigh
  • Outside part of the thigh – typically, we find this is the tightest area
  • Inner thigh – we don’t tend to find that this gest tight, but try it for yourself to see what it’s like for you
  • Important – STOP if there’s any pain
