This high density foam roller will help you to apply the necessary physiotherapy for myofascial release and the buildup of lactic acid. You can alleviate your sore muscles and using your yoga foam roller will also help you to recover faster from your workouts.
Your deep tissue roller consists of high density foam with a textured surface which helps to alleviate muscle knots and tension by targeting a trigger point in a specific part of the body. All you need to do is to roll over the affected areas repeatedly and you will experience relief quickly.
Your high density foam roller is resistant to moisture thanks to the Eva foam textured surface composition. It is also able to withstand repetitive use before and after your workouts. You can use your yoga foam roller before your workout for stretching your muscles.
Your high quality yoga foam roller is very lightweight at just 0.23Kg which means that you can take it with you wherever you go. The dimensions of your foam roller are 450mm by 150mm by 150mm.
Why you need your High Density Foam Roller
If you participate regularly in any form of exercise then you may be familiar with the concept of myofascial release. With your high quality foam roller it is like having your own masseuse or therapist available for a very low price.
With myofascial release you apply low intensity forces over your soft tissues over a period of time. The process allows your contracted muscles to relax and in turn this increases blood flow as well as nutrient flow to the affected area.
Your foam roller is a simple piece of equipment but very effective in the application of myofascial release using a trigger point. You will be able to perform self massage at a fraction of the price of having a professional massage or physiotherapy session.
Increase your Blood Flow
When you use your high density foam roller you perform myofascial release through the stretching and loosening of your muscles by its textured surface. After a while of applying the pressure from your yoga foam roller you will squeeze out the blood and this gets replaced with new blood.
The new blood brings essential nutrients such as glycogen and oxygen to your affected muscles. The more that you use your yoga foam roller the more you can increase your blood flow and this will lead to even more beneficial results.
You will improve your Movement
By using a foam roller before and after your workout you will hydrate your muscles and make them looser. This helps your muscles to move past each other with lower friction and focus on a trigger point. If you use your yoga foam roller prior to your workout then you will find you perform smoother movements and you will be less likely to be injured.
Increase your Range of Motion
When you self massage with your deep tissue roller you will increase your range of motion because your muscles are properly lubricated and stretched. This will help you to perform a more effective workout.
Your Risk of Injury Decreases
When you use your deep tissue roller for self massage you increase the circulation in your body. When your circulation improves you will be more flexible and your body movements will be more fluid.
You will also reduce your risk of injury with foam rolling because you improve your body’s coordination. This lessens your chances of making an improper movement that could cause an injury. If you do experience an injury then you will reduce your recovery time.
Help your Muscles to recover Faster
Using your muscle roller on an affected area will draw blood to it and this will help you to reduce muscle recovery time. After every yoga session or other workout you should use your yoga foam roller to eradicate the lactic acid build up and introduce fresh blood and nutrients fast.
The advantages of massage rolling are clear to see. It is easy for you to perform at home or in the class or gym before and after your yoga session or workout.
