I didn’t know what I was missing.
Holy moly. I’m fairly new to exercising and such on a regular basis. Somebody recommended foam rolling to me a while ago, but I kinda brushed it off like, “Meh…maybe I’ll try it some day. Probably not, though.”
Good size and feels great!
This foam roller is great! “There are many like it, but this one is mine!” Kudos to those who know where this quote is from! Got this roller at a discount for reviewing purposes and let me tell you, I like it a lot. I do own another roller (see review: ), but I do like this one more. The inner 4” tube is made of black hard plastic and is hollow inside. The surrounding foam (orange part in my case) is made of a rubberized soft but dense foam that seems like it would last and hold its shape. Although it is soft to the touch, it’s still firm enough to hold the shape of the ridges. Unlike the other roller I own, this one isn’t as harsh on the muscles because of the softer material. Yet it still provides a good rolling massage on my muscles. It has four sides; two that are round & flat and two with ridges. Both feel good, depending on the exercise / muscle. There is an instruction sheet provided that shows six different rolling leg exercises. Some were more comfortable than others, but that is all a personal preference especially considering the muscle structure and pain level (if any). This roller is 13 inches long and almost 5.5” wide – see pictures for details. Thirteen inches is a good length because it’s portable, yet wide enough for the body in any position. There are longer rollers out there, but I don’t think that is necessary. It weighs 1lb and 15oz.
Good nuff, Happy, Does the Job.
I really like this thing. The core is solid and doesn’t flex. I weigh 175lbs and think it would work well up to 225 without any issues. Especially considering you’re generally not putting all your weight on it, unless you’re on your back. If you weight more than that, then you may want to consider a solid core roller just to be safe.
Top Notch Foam Roller!
This is an EXCELLENT foam roller! I recently got into foam rolling before and after my weight lifting sessions. After power lifting and playing sports for many years and not specifically working on mobility at all, this has helped tremendously.
This is a great foam roller
This is a great foam roller! It is very firm and has really helped me after runs and walking long distances. My daughter’s shin splints were so painful at the beginning of her semester at UC Berkeley because she was walking uphill and long distances so often. Her stretching was a minor help, but they would return just the same. Now that she is rolling every night, her shin splints have yet returned! It is a great quality foam roller and has helped myself, along with my daughter.
This is just what the doctor ordered! I never …
This is just what the doctor ordered! I never realized how much I needed this until I used this one. I work out a lot and basically just dealt with being sore, this has enabled me to get the knots out and be a lot more pain free. LOL
A small but firm, good material, easy to store. Recommend.
Can small beat big? Yes, it can. This one is better than the ones I use at the gym which is twice the size. The roller is big enough (and strong enough) to sit my fat ass on it, but small enough to smooth out kinks on my shoulder or under arms. Perfect to roll shins and leg muscles. The core is made of a hard plastic like the ones at the gym, but the hard rubber material outside is strong enough. Also, I like that it stops rolling when the edge hits the ribbed side – which makes it better than runaway roll that sometimes happened to me on the gym floor. I’ve only had it for about a month, but so far, it’s been a great purchase. Maybe a good gift for someone doing yoga or home stretch.
