E33: Move better with Hyperice
Show Notes Transcript

It's time to revolutionize the way we move, and Director of Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Sales at Hyperice Eric Fernandez is doing just that. He joins Todd & Mike this week to discuss the importance of body maintenance and how percussion and thermal vibration can help soft tissue movement. This in turn helps speed up recovery, improve range of motion, decrease stiffness, accelerate a warmup and more. They also cover Hyperice's other products such as the vibrating Vyper foam roller, Hypersphere, & the Venom series, the last of which adds variable heat and vibration to a certain area to enhance muscle performance. Eric reviews Hyperice's new bluetooth capabilities as well as the ability to set goals through the app in order to gather data to measure activity.
