As a runner, cyclist or other workout fiend, we all get sore muscles after a hard workout. I know that after an especially hard race where I’ve pushed myself that I begin to think of the wonderfulness of a massage. How great would it be to get one after every long run or tough workout? Personally, while massages are great, the cost of them can be out of a lot of our budget ranges (at least getting them done regularly).
Enter the addaday massage roller. This isn’t your mother’s massage roller, it’s so much better than anything else I have yet to use. The one I chose to try is the type C, which has plastic grips on both ends with precise precision point rollers allowing you to massage even the toughest areas on your legs, back, arms, neck, etc. It feels just like fingers massaging you as you roll it over those sore, tender spots.
Addaday makes seven different types of massage rollers. The type C has has the benefits of a soft, deep tissue massage. This technique can help with IT Band Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Sore Quads and Hamstrings, Sore Back, Shin Splints and many other common injuries suffered by runners. This is a roller than has been seen in the pages of Runner’s World as well as Men’s Health magazines. Definitely a great recovery tool to have around!
In addition to the different types of rollers, there are instructional videos on the addaday.com website to help you get the most out of your massage roller. Not to mention tips and tricks that are also very helpful. My addaday massage roller will be with me after every race from now on, it’s become a part of my recovery toolkit!
