So I'm going back to college and they have a REALLY nice weight room and gym so I will be hoping to lose all the weight again that I gained from being back home for 4 months. I'm getting to thinking that after I lift I will be doing studying and relaxing for the rest of the day/night. So I was thinking of getting a massage chair type thing. Does massage after working out really help your muscles?
Yes. There are a lot of great benefits to regular massage.
...plus they feel awesome.
But yeah, I can imagine that it would be good especially after working out, because it would help to increase nutrient-giving blood flow around your muscles.
Yea I most likely will buy one of those massage pads to put in my computer chair so that after I weight lift I can write my paper and feel relaxed.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge

Massage is CRUCIAL.
It astounds me how pople will shell out hunderes for suppliment but not a cent on soft tissue work.
I am a huge fan of deep deeeeep massage and forced streching, today's masage with my coach gave me atleast another 3" of depth in my squat once I got my hips loosened off.
**** that stupid massage chair, get a proper DEEP TISSUE REMDIAL MASSAGE or a tennis ball and a foam roller.
Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
I got a foam roller for christmas, well worth it. lovely on the quads, hams, adductors/abbductors after squatting.
As a massage isnt really possible for me the roller is a good second best.
