Foam Rolling With Trigger Point Massage Therapy
Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
As most of you know if you've been following my blog, I'm a believer in foam rolling. #TuesdayTidbit - Do You Foam Roll? If you are new to the blog, welcome. :)
But I have never used a trigger point foam roller. They've always looked scary to me! My first thought when seeing one was pain. That being said, I was a little apprehensive to try a trigger point foam roller, but there have been times that I just couldn't really get to the sore spot that I needed to massage. So I put my fears aside and tried the GR8 Goodz Trigger Point Massage Therapy Foam Roller.
Before I could try it out, Lil Man played with it for an entire afternoon. He thought it made a good garage for his trucks because of the hole in the center. ;) I knew one of the best ways to test the trigger point foam roller's toughness was to let my 4 year old have it for a few hours. It passed the rough handling of a preschooler.
I have to say that I was surprised when I tried it out. I just assumed that I would need to use it lightly, and for me that wasn't the case. I was able to use it the same way as a regular foam roller. The difference was that I was able to target specific areas easier.
I loved the size. I have found that with a longer foam roller, sometimes I wouldn't have the space to use it. The GR8 Goodz Trigger Point Massage Therapy Foam Roller was the perfect size to roll out my muscles without bumping into my furniture.
If you foam roll, I encourage you to try the GR8 Goodz Trigger Point Massage Therapy Foam, if you don't foam roll, I encourage you start!
I'm hoping for an injury free year this year, and foam rolling is part of my program!
