The Unexpected Tool Halle Berry Uses for Post-Workout Recovery
You can buy it on Amazon for just $18.
Halle Berry is a beast in the gym. Even her trainer has said that Berry has the athleticism of a 25-year-old. Not only does she train hard, but she's also committed to sharing her workouts with others to help inspire people. (But for real, if you haven't seen the 8 ab exercises Berry swears by, you're missing out.)
Berry says they're "great for strains, sprains, bruises, and general muscle overuse." (Related: How to Train Your Body to Feel Less Pain When Working Out)
These nifty little tools basically make it easier to ice and massage targeted areas. They're great for "reducing inflammation" and "providing pain relief," Berry explained. (Related: Halle Berry's Favorite Workouts That Help Her Stay In Incredible Shape)
The product also seems to be a hit with Amazon reviewers: "This is the best ice massage tool I've seen," wrote one person. "It allows you to use real ice (which is self-lubricating and holds its temperature very well), and it keeps your hands away from the ice block so your fingers don't freeze in the process."
"If you use cryotherapy for sore joints, which I highly recommend, you can't do better than these cheap little Cryocups," shared another person. "They do exactly what they're supposed to do at a bargain price."
ICYDK, cooling treatments like cryotherapy are pretty ~trendy~ these days. Trainers, influencers, and athletes alike can't seem to get enough. "Post-exercise cryotherapy decreases the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)," Ralph Reiff, M.Ed., ATC, LAT, executive director of St. Vincent Sports Performance, previously told us.
But given cryotherapy's hefty price tag (one session can range between $65 and $100), it's not in the books for everybody.
CryoCups, however, are available on Amazon and will only set you back $18—a small price to pay if you struggle with post-workout muscle pain and soreness. Plus, they're Halle Berry-approved—which is all the assurance you need. (Is icing not your thing? Try these 8 unconventional ways to treat sore muscles that don't involve ice.)
