Who’s it good for: It’s built for athletes and those looking to take their recovery to the next level. Notable Attributes/Details: This amazing device has 3 vibrational speeds that translate to deep muscle relaxation. It is almost twice as effective as regular foam rolling to warmup and actively recover. Not full size, so it’s travel friendly. Durable outer shell, so it will last. Multiple speeds provide a variety of massages. Comes with a powerful motor. Easy to use.
The battery life can be a little short, and it’s noisy.
You need to have this if you’re trying to recover as hard as you train. You’ll feel the difference over a regular foam roller by a landslide. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Good things don’t come to those who wait; they come to those who work. That being said, building a body that you love and are confident in isn’t an easy task.
Becoming your best self involves constantly being pushed outside of your comfort zone. When it comes to your physique, this means overloading your muscles with enough strain to force them to breakdown and then subsequently adapt in order to grow and become stronger. Pushing yourself to this point of discomfort on a consistent basis is necessary for continual improvement, but can be tough to endure.
How you train is important when it comes to reaching your goals, but it can be argued that how you recover has even more of an impact. If you are constantly sore, exhausted, and worn out from your past workouts, you can’t expect your body to be ready to perform.
Enter the Hyperice Vyper 2.0. You may have used a foam roller before in the past, but I bet you it’s nothing like this one. The Vyper 2.0 is the self-proclaimed “next generation of the world’s most powerful vibrating fitness roller” and it truly doesn’t disappoint. The vibration in this powerful roller increases circulation and has shown to be twice as effective as a traditional foam roller. Range of motion can be increased up to 40% as the vibration loosens and lengthens muscles and reduces soreness. I love using it, and on the occasion where I’ve been able to use them with my high school athletes, I saw a noticeable difference in movement quality.
