“I use my Theragun everyday. It’s powerful, quiet, and an essential part of my warm up and recovery. Deep muscle treatment never felt so good."
Meet Paul

If a highly decorated, decade-long career in the pros and winning an Olympic gold medal on the 2016 US national team wasn't enough for Paul George, we can't wait to see what the 6-time all-start will do next to cement his legacy. Since stepping onto the scene as the 10th overall draft pick in 2010, PG has cemented himself as one of the best two-way players in the game.


But as a veteran who's experienced his fair share of being benched by injury, Paul knows how important taking care of his body is for peak performance. Discover how the Theragun has become essential to helping him stay fresh and playing better than ever throughout the rigorous 80+ game season.

WARM-UP | TOTAL TIME: 5 MINUTES
The work starts in warm-up

Quickly sweep across your calves, quads, glutes, shoulders, and traps for 30 seconds each to increase mobility, help prevent injury, and activate the fast twitch muscles. Use the Dampener attachment for this protocol.

TIME-OUT | TOTAL TIME: 1-2 MINUTES
Stay fresh all game

Quick sprints and lateral defensive movements can cause lactic acid build up and cramps in the legs. Hit your calves, quads, and glutes for 15-30 seconds each as needed during time-outs or on the bench to keep your legs fresh quarter after quarter.

POST-GAME RECOVERY | TOTAL TIME: 9 MINUTES
Reduce soreness and get back on the court faster

Using the Standard Ball attachment, start with slow, steady sweeps on the muscle groups in the lower body for one minute each. Then, transition to the shoulders and traps using the Dampener attachment.
