Reduce post workout muscle soreness/tightness and get back to your routine faster!
Our Dynamic Foam Roller is scientifically engineered & designed to mimic a finger & thumb-like combination; Swedish/sports massage pressure. This helps break up knotted muscle fibers, decrease muscle tension, and diminish tightness. This is our intermediate level roller as it's is able to get deep in the muscle fascia to reach trigger points but with softer strokes and less pin-point pressure.
Firm but flexible bumps
Combination of pin-point and grid design
Closest to mimicking real finger & thumb pressure
Great for all body parts, works great around bony areas
Molded from an EVA/Polyolefin blend outer shell
Solid High-Density EVA foam core
5X the strength, tear and abrasion resistance of conventional foam rollers
Use foam rollers when warming-up before workouts to increase blood flow and loosen up your muscles. Use after workouts or in your free time to help improve overall mobility and recovery times!
Follow these tips to get started:
Start with light pressure and build up as you get used to foam rolling. You may find it painful to foam roll at first if your muscles are tight. To adjust pressure, reduce the amount of body weight you’re putting onto the roller. For example, if you’re rolling out your calf, use your arms to help support your body and take some of your body weight off of the roller.
Slowly roll tender areas for 10 seconds to start, then work up to 30 to 60 seconds at a time.
Drink plenty of water after foam rolling to help with recovery.
Benefits of Foam Rollers
1. Relieve Stress
Foam rolling away knots can help you de-stress at the end of a tough day, just like a massage would. That’s because when you release your knots and sore spots, the tension built up in your connective tissue releases and leaves you feeling less stressed.
2. Improve Blood Circulation
Foam rolling increases blood circulation. Healthy blood flow is necessary for healthy tissue and organ function because it permits the continuous exchange of nutrients and waste in the cells, and the stimulation of fluid through the lymphatic system, an important part of your immune system.
3. Accelerates Lactic Acid Return to the Body
When we workout, the body builds up lactic acid. Lactic acid buildup is often associated with cramps and fatigue, especially after heavy exercise. Foam rolling can help accelerate the body’s breakdown of lactic acid post-workout relieving soreness and speeding up recovery so you can get back to working out faster!
4. Reduces Cellulite
One cause of cellulite are shifts in connective tissue structure. Foam rolling helps stretch connective tissues and improve circulation. It does this by breaking up interwoven fat fibers. This process helps prevent the formation of cellulite and reduction of existing cellulite!
5. Keeps your Flexible
Building up your flexibility is key for any fitness routine, which means you constantly should be stretching and doing exercises that’ll help you gain flexibility. Stretches that lengthen your hip flexors, for example, can help combat tightness from sitting as well as lower back pain. Foam rolling promotes excellent stretching.
6. Save Money
Massages are expensive, and if you’re recovering from an injury, regular meetings with the physical therapist are too. Using a foam roller as part of your regular workouts can help you recover from damaged muscles, and can even help you to prevent many injuries.
7. Improves Flexibility
The more flexible your muscles are within normal range of motion, the more power they will be able to produce. This has to do with elastic energy. The more stretch a muscle gets, the more stored energy it has, the more force it will be able to generate. On the other hand, a less flexible muscle produces less stretch, less range of motion, less stored energy, and decreased force output. Foam rolling, combined with proper stretching, strengthening, and training could help you reach new performance levels that you were never able to achieve before. Foam rolling has become standard practice among many collegiate and professional level athletes across all sports because of the perceived performance benefits.
8. Prevent Injuries
One of the most important reasons for a regular foam rolling routine is to prevent common exercise-related injuries. Many runners, for example, become painfully well acquainted with their IT band (iliotibial band) if they don’t take care to massage the band of tissue.IT band syndrome (iliotibial band syndrome) and other similar flare-ups can be caused by too-tight muscles. Foam rolling every day ensures you are massaging away fascia buildup in your muscles, in order to help prevent those areas from becoming injury trigger points.
