Trent Alexander-Arnold uses the Theragun PRO and Theragun mini massage guns to help him recover from the intense schedule as a professional football player for Liverpool F.C. and the English national team.
An integral part of a Liverpool team that competes in the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, and two national cups, Alexander-Arnold realized at a young age how important it is to take care of his body in order to keep performing at this level week in, week out.
“To perform at an elite level, you need to recover at an elite level,” the England international explains. “At this level, players have unbelievable endurance, amazing strength, speed, and agility.”
“You’re always coming up against someone who’s elite, and over the last two or three years, it’s been about trying to find something that the rest of my competition doesn’t have.”
“Theragun is the perfect tool to aid my recovery, improve my performance, and get more out of my body,” Alexander-Arnold continued. “In football, preparation is the most important thing—it’s the training and recovery you do through the week that prepares you for the weekend.”
The first footballer to become an athlete ambassador for Los Angeles, California-based Therabody, the Liverpool right-back would later be joined in this role by Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Chelsea FC’s Romelu Lukaku, and Manchester City‘s Kevin De Bruyne.
Here is how Alexander-Arnold gets ready for the next game:
To activate his muscles and increase circulation, the Liverpool-native uses his Theragun PRO to target his quads, hamstrings, and calves for about 15 seconds each.
Using the Dampener attachment, Alexander-Arnold massages his feet, shins, calves, hamstrings, and quads for about 30 seconds each. He then switches to the Wedge attachment to sweep along his IT bands for another 30 seconds each.
