DIY Muscle Massage Gun (Ideal for MMA & BJJ)

Get rid of knots, trigger points, annoying muscles in spasm and risk your life with a DIY Percussion Massage Gun.

Preparation Time
  • 20 mins
 

Equipment
  • Universal Jigsaw Adapter (available from Amazon.co.uk here)
  • Metal File
  • Industrial Super Glue (available from Amazon.co.uk here)
  • Golf Ball or Dog’s Ball
  • Drill
  • Jigsaw Power Tool (I used this one from Amazon, bit expensive but a great DIY tool as well)
Instructions
  • If necessary, file down the point at the end of the universal adapter so that it is blunt
  • Drill a hole two thirds of the way down into the golf or dog’s ball
  • Fill the hole with industrial Super Glue
  • Insert the end of the universal adapter & leave to set for 30 minutes
  • Use the adapter with the ball instead of a saw in the Jigsaw power tool!
Be very careful! The first time I used it, I got my wife to use it on my glute and the ball eventually flew off the end and I nearly got stabbed. That’s why I recommend using a blunt saw-adapter or filing it down so it is blunt.

If you don’t fancy risking injury, check out the Tim Tam Massager.

 

Instructions for use

  • Hold the ‘massager’ a cm or so away from one of your tight muscle(s)
  • Pull the trigger and push the button above it to active
  • Hold on the muscle for max of 60 seconds
