When i first heard that Foam rollers were selling like hot cakes. I said, "What's a foam roller? I googled it. It's a massage roller.
This is a series-8 fitness foam massage roller.
I have to try it, so i ordered one for myself today Dec 11. I cannot guarentee it will arrive before Christmas, the company warned me that it might now.
GUESS WE'LL HAVE TO HAVE THEM FOR NEW YEAR.
If youi've ever had Lactic acid build-up in your legs, and I have, this roller will--I hope--work wonders. I don't know if this one is rigid enough to really dig deep. I thought when I saw it that it was like a paint roller with a handle. How great would that be? But, alas, it does not. It relies on your body weight or pressure, or you roll it like a rolling pin.
This is an inexpensiver verson, there are $29.99, $50, & $150 ones on the market, but I'm giving this one a try. I wish I could say it's a great last-minute gift.
Guess I haven't gotten the message that one must begin selling for Christmas two months early. and with the taxed Postal Service this year. it might be slow.

SELF-MYOFASCIAL RELEASE-- also known as "trigger-point release" or "foam rolling" – is a kind of self-massage designed to work out adhesions in the layers of fascia below the skin. These adhesions can be caused by overworking the muscles, and they can be painful. By using your bodyweight to roll yourself over a foam roller in various directions, you put pressure on the adhesions, which releases them.
Professional athletes know the benefits of a post-workout massage. Not only will it speed up recovery time, but a massage can help unlock muscles that have tightened up as well as improve circulation, release tension, aid in flexibility and help eliminate built-up lactic acid. It also aids in relaxation, as well as being a reward to yourself after a hard workout.
