Muscle Recovery Is Important, Even for Superheroes

Bobby Holland Hanton discusses how Ekrin Athletics keeps him in tip-top shape.

By Bobby Holland Hanton

Icame across the Ekrin Athletics line of massage guns recently, and that discovery couldn’t have come at a better time.  As part of my role as Chris Hemsworth’s stunt double, I have to keep up with his progress in the gym for his role as Thor — as you can imagine, I spend a lot of time in the gym.

That means workout recovery is imperative for me.  It’s an essential factor in my ability to keep moving forward in the gym.  That’s not all, though.  Below, I discuss the six ways Ekrin Athletics has impacted my health and my career. 

On Set

One key reason I’m so focused on muscle recovery is because of the stunt work we’re doing for Thor: Love And Thunder. I have to stay mobile and agile to prevent injury and bring magic to the movie.

Enter: The Ekrin B37. This gun is so powerful. I’ve tried a plethora of other massage guns, but this one takes percussive therapy to another level. It’s equipped with several great attachments that I can choose from depending where I need to apply the pressure. It makes it easy to reach body parts that are normally so difficult to treat, and the range of speeds means I can use it even when I feel super sore. 

Traveling

I’m constantly traveling. Filming, interviews, and appearances can truly take me anywhere around the world. I like to travel light and organized, and I do my best to never skip a day of training — so that means recovery can’t be skipped either. 

The B37 is incredibly light for its size and power, which makes for easy packing and traveling. That’s a win for me! The battery life on the B37 is phenomenal, too, but you wouldn’t believe that Ekrin has an even better massage gun for travel. The BANTAM is built for portability. I use it on the plane between London and Australia so my muscles don’t seize up or get sore. It’s also insanely quiet, so I don’t bother anyone on the plane while using it. I can quite literally can take it anywhere with me. 

Training and Working Out

My routine becomes incredibly regimented during preparation for new movies. When I’m not in the gym, I’m eating constantly. I eat roughly 4,000 calories a day across two-hour intervals for ten hours a day.

I eat this way to fuel my body for workouts that get tougher and tougher. For example, while training for Thor, I completed multiple workout sessions per day, which included heavy weightlifting with supersets and high reps. I also did plenty of bodyweight circuits, CrossFit metcons, and plyo-fusion to retain mobility.

After every workout, I cool down with stretches, and then I usually dip into an ice bath to reduce inflammation and give my body a reset. Then comes my favorite part of the routine: percussive therapy. I actually sometimes sneak this part in between reps, especially if I’m feeling a bit tight.  

Injury Prevention

If you’ve experienced an injury, you know how important it is to protect yourself after you heal. Two years ago, I had major back surgery to replace two discs in my lower back. I now have two titanium discs and my back is better than ever, and that’s only possible thanks to focusing on rehab and prioritizing recovery.

As a fitness trainer, I’ve seen a lot of young athletes and fitness enthusiasts throw themselves into a fitness routine and diet, but fail to focus on injury prevention by warming up, cooling down, and most importantly, establishing a recovery routine.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to respect the body you’re building, which is why I believe so deeply in tools like the products Ekrin is creating. Giving athletes a way to tend to themselves, add self-care into their routine, and prevent injury are all noble causes in my book. (And the fact it feels so good doesn’t hurt either). 

Affordable Self-Care

This is another huge win. Self-care and recovery can be very expensive, especially when you’re recovering from an injury. What I love about having Ekrin’s massage guns on hand is that this daily investment in my recovery is saving me heaps of money on massage and physiotherapy.

With everything going on in the world, it can be challenging to see bodywork professionals and the added expense can also prove difficult. Having tools like massage guns on-hand allows for the daily upkeep that prevents the long-term need for expensive healthcare.  

Mind and Body

I want to conclude with one final note about my workout recovery routine. I’ve created a sort of mindfulness focus during the massage portion. I’ll pop in my headphones and listen to a meditation or some favorite music.

The massage guns are rhythmic and quiet for how much power they yield, so it’s a very easy dual-capacity piece to add in. Honestly, Ekrin Athletics has helped me bring this element to my recovery. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but I’ve always struggled with the urge to pop off to the next daily task.

These massage guns allow me to slow down, take a deep breath, and ensure that I’m taking care of all aspects of my health, both physical and mental.  

Conclusion

The Ekrin massage guns are actually part of my everyday life because I’m constantly training, performing stunts, and travelling all over the world as part of my job. The relief I get from Ekrin massage guns is priceless for me, because there’s nothing as valuable as my ability to stay as strong as I possibly can and keep performing at the highest level possible.

That’s really what fitness is about. We all aspire for greatness. We want to achieve excellence, build a body we’re proud of, and feel accomplished every day. But this journey is truly about the long-term game. It takes time; it’s not an overnight process. That’s why I advocate for the full routine, for every piece of the puzzle: Do your warmups, get on a periodized training plan, and establish a recovery routine with the essentials you need. If you do that, you’re setting yourself up for that long-term win.
