When I was searching the VitaCost website and looking at all the products, I wanted to find something that runners could identify with… and of course the thought “foam roller” came into my mind. The love/hate relationship that we have with these is kind of funny really. Non runners reading this will wonder what the heck I am talking about. The foam roller is a tool to roll under muscles to relieve strain or tension after a workout or as therapy. It happened that the day mine arrived I had a sore hip from running on the treadmill. I got on the floor and rolled over the “Grid” a couple times, and yes it hurt! A lot! But after it was over, I felt better, and the next morning it was back to normal. I like this roller because of the knobbiness of the surface. It kind of feels like fingers, and helps to stimulate the blood flow.
Here’s the product information directly from the website:
