A few weeks ago I bought a Rumble Roller from Rogue Fitness. It’s the best purchase I’ve made in a long time. I’ve been rolling several times a day since I got it and it’s making a big difference in my recovery and how sore I get.
I went with a 30″ for about $70 but may also pick up a small one for traveling. It’s that good! I didn’t have much experience with foam rolling before this, but went with the firm one even though they recommend starting with the original density roller. I highly recommend you go firm as well. It can hurt pretty good when you hit your tight spots, but you’ll get used to the pain and isn’t that the whole point anyway? You want to get those kinks out so they don’t hurt for days at a higher degree.
Instead of sitting around doing nothing while you watch TV, you could be on your living room floor, rolling the shit out of your muscles. Fix yourself!
