Making the most of the gym….

posted in: blog | 0

Massages and working out or training for a sport go hand in hand. A regular massage planned into any exercise routine you complete has a number of amazing advantages. Every sports person semi-professional or professional will have or use a massage therapist. We have previously blogged about the difference between deep tissue and sports massage and this leads nicely into the balance of having a regular massage alongside your training.

When you book a massage there should be clear and concise communication between you the client and your massage therapist about what your purpose is for getting the massage.

If you have a serious injury or movement issue, then consult a sports massage therapist or sports rehab therapist. If you have niggles and knots, then a good massage therapist with a good reputation will be ideal. If you are after the full relaxation and benefits from your massage, then booking in with a gay masseur or an Adonis masseur for the best hands in Manchester is the right choice.

Talk with your Manchester Adonis masseur about your training programme, we are all experienced gym goers and personal trainers so we can match your aches and pains to the best massage pressure and techniques.

Just because your massage says full body does not mean it has to be full body. We have many regular clients working hard in the gym that come in for a particular muscle group massage. For instance, coming in for a good back massage with legs, or a shoulder, head massage with chest. We tailor out gay massages to your needs.

All our Swedish, naturist and deluxe massages are about getting you want you want to help you relax, remove knots and be your best at your next gym session. You may even want the full body but want to focus more on your back, so ask for this. Do not be shy with your requests.

Pressure; this is one most guys don’t seem to understand or communicate effectively, and you need to work on this to ensure we offer you the best gay massage money can buy. We both have firm hands and we can apply a lot of pressure if required, you need to be prepared for a little pain as we previously discussed in our blogs about should a massage hurt. Talk about the sensations, moan and let your masseur know when the pressure is right, too much or sometimes too little. We work with you and your body.

Hitting the gym and having a massage…

Be careful with when you have your massage and your next training session. Good Personal Trainers will tell you to plan your week with your workouts, rest days and recovery. A massage should be booked after your last session before a rest or recovery period. This means your body has time to recover from the workout and also from the massage. The massage should work the muscles you have just worked to help remove lactic acid from the muscle fibres and help remove toxins.

A rest or recovery period should be based on no high intensity exercise or weight training but maintain a good step count. It should also be a day of mental detox and look to do more stretching. Your Adonis massage will leave you feeling relaxed and sleepy thus you should maximise that by having a lazy day in bed or getting some sun. 

Planning this is essential you don’t really want to be having a massage then hitting the gym as the body will be relaxed and if you force it to workout out you could cause a more serious injury, or your workout will not be as epic as it should be. Massage is about muscle recovery thus use it to recover and make you stop for some time.

Many top sports people use massage after a long game, competition to help get them ready for the next game or competition. They will have a very strict plan of training, build up, the event and the rest and recovery. Train like a top sports person and reap the benefits of a good massage. Start your week off from the gym, or your holiday with a gay massage. You won’t regret it and I guarantee your training will be more epic, letting your reach your goals faster.
