Motocross Arm Pump: Prevent and Treat with Myoball's Hot and Cold Massage Therapy"
The physical and physiological demands of motocross require athletes to utilise enhanced rest and recovery strategies. With multiple rides back-to-back and minimal time between each race, rest and recovery are essential. Motocross athletes do not have time for peripheral fatigue in the arms and legs to take over their body (i.e., arm pump). Also, after a weekend of racing, motocross athletes are right back to training and cannot let something like muscle soreness keep them from peak performance.
Myoball, with its hot and cold massage therapy, ensures optimal recovery for motocross athletes. The combination of heat and cold therapy helps to relieve muscle tension and reduce inflammation, making it an excellent solution for preventing and treating motocross arm pump.
Motocross places intense demands on the body, resulting in fatigue that negatively impacts the overall performance of the rider. Races may last anywhere from 15-30 minutes, during which athletes endure constant isometric contractions to stabilise their body and motorbike while absorbing shocks and vibrations experienced during a race.
The constant and rapid changes of direction, jumps, curves, and braking require significant anaerobic metabolism and result in increased plasma oxidative stress and damage as athletes perform at vigorous intensities between 90-100% of their maximal heart rate. This vigorous physical exertion causes high levels of exertion and fatigue, as measured by lactic acid levels after a race. This fatigue consequently reduces strength and power production post-race, which is detrimental when the next moto race may take place within 45 minutes.
Myoball's hot and cold massage therapy can assist muscle recovery by removing lactic acid and returning pH back to resting levels. Heat relaxes muscles and promotes blood flow, providing muscles with oxygen and nutrients, while cold therapy reduces inflammation and treats existing injuries.
At the end of a full day of races, the body is physically exhausted, and soreness may begin to set in immediately or within the coming days. Motocross requires athletes to have high fitness levels, and soreness and achy joints after a race day may delay training or result in fatigued training that can further increase the risk of injury in an already high-risk extreme sport. Myoball's hot and cold massage therapy provides pain relief to sore and achy muscles and joints so that the body feels fresh and ready to perform day in and day out.
The extreme and vigorous physical and physiological demands placed on motocross riders require athletes to utilise enhanced recovery modalities. Myoball's hot and cold massage therapy clears lactic acid and restores pH by actively recovering the muscle in between rides and reduces pain and soreness by clearing metabolic debris.
To reduce arm pump, riders should use Myoball on their forearms immediately after they finish a race. Within 30-40 minutes, about the time between rides, riders' arms will feel fresh and rejuvenated, eliminating fatigue that has previously been felt in past races.
To prevent and treat motocross arm pump, follow these tips:
Stretching: Just like any other muscle group, your forearms benefit from regular stretching. Stretch out your forearms often to increase their flexibility, giving you more control over your upper body in a workout and reducing your risk of injuring yourself through overtraining or hyperflexion.
Cold Therapy: Cold can reduce inflammation and treat existing injuries. It is best applied within the first 24 hours of a workout or injury.
Heat Therapy: Heat relaxes muscles and promotes blood flow, providing your muscles with oxygen and nutrients. Heat is best applied after the initial 24 hours of an injury.
In conclusion, Myoball's hot and cold massage therapy is an effective solution for motocross athletes to prevent and treat arm pump, ensuring the body functions at optimal levels during races and training while reducing the risk of fatigue-related injuries.
By using Myoball, you'll always be in control and ready to treat your motocross arm pump or muscle soreness, anytime and anywhere. For those serious about their recovery, we recommend our Twin Pack of Myoballs.
