We all know that exercising is always a win for body, mind, and soul, but if you’re not following it up with dedicated recovery exercises then you’re missing a big step that’s beneficial to your total health.
Consider rigorous arm workouts. Whether you were lifting weights, endured an intense session with battling ropes, or even just had an extreme match of pickleball with your son— your biceps and triceps will have had a serious workout. Treat them with some needed love and care afterwards with your Backbridge for full recovery. Men’s Health named the Backbridge the Best Passive Recovery Tool in its 2022 Men's Health Home Gym Awards list, so you know it’s the perfect tool to get you feeling your best.
A prestigious honor, the 2022 Men's Health Home Gym Awards recognize the best home gym products across a number of categories including Best Connected Fitness, such as the Peloton Bike Plus and the Tempo Move; Best Garage Gym Gear, Best Home Weights, and more. In the Backbridge winning category of Best Recovery Tools, other products that piqued our interest for the ultimate recovery include the Mobility Wall Smooth Roller for massaging tiring muscles and the Hyperice X knee sleeve that delivers hot and cold contrast therapy for an injured knee.
