Foam roller from Shock Fitness

Foam Roller

 

It is widely recognized that foam rollers have the same effects as deep-tissue massage. It can be effective for many muscles, including: gastrocnemius, latissimus dorsi, piriformis, adductors, quadriceps, hamstrings, hip flexors, thoracic spine (trapezius and rhomboids), and TFL.   This is accomplished by rolling the foam roller under each muscle group until a tender area is found, and then maintaining pressure on the tender areas (known as trigger points) for 30 to 60 seconds.

The Stick from Shock Fitness

The Stick

 

The Stick is a self- massage device designed to give your muscles all the benefits that you would get from visiting a massage therapist or physiotherapist.  The Stick can be used like a "Toothbrush" for your muscles.  By using The Stick on a daily basis (like brushing your teeth), you will achieve a higher level of fitness and overall well-being. By rolling over your muscles, your circulation will increase and breakdown trigger points (muscle knots). The Stick has been used for Self-Myofascial Release for over 19 years.
