Review : : Foam Roller

TriggerPoint Grid Foam Roller 

An aching muscle in my thigh (ok a bit higher… more like butt cheek) reminded me this week just how much I have come to rely on the Trigger Point Grid Foam Roller. This is probably my most used piece of kit other than the bike and helmet.

This is foam roller is used to massage the muscles.  The lumps and bumps of the grid pattern work into the muscle which I am told promotes the flow of blood and oxygen for recovery.   It does hurt!  Like hell! Especially if you haven’t used it for a while.

I use it mostly after exercise while the muscles are still warm.

It comes with me on most excursions away.  Its easy enough to travel with if you place your clothes and socks inside it.  It measures 33cm long by 12.5cm.

Here is a link to the TriggerPoint videos showing how it can be used in different positions.
