One of many uses for the foam roller

In a recent blog, I wrote about using a bear vault as a foam roller for self myofascial release while in the backcountry. Another tool that has been on the market for years for myofascial release is a vibrating wand or "The Thumper". Perform Better now has a new product that combines BOTH tools, the Vibraroll. The Vibraroll is the same as a foam roller, but has a vibrating unit built in the center of it, thus creating even more blood flow to muscles and tendons to increase healing and recovery. I find this to be a nifty tool, especially for the hard-to-tenderize IT Bands. As many of you know, I'm a big fan of the foam roller. Now, I'm a bigger fan of the Vibraroll. Better yet, it's on sale until the end of September!
