Vibration foam rolling has been making waves in the fitness industry for years. And there’s reason behind it. Here’s why rolling combined with low-intensity vibrations help speed up recovery.
A muscle recovery routine is crucial, and foam rolling is a key practice in keeping muscles and fascia healthy, flexible and moving. The GRID VIBE takes the concept of foam rolling and adds a beneficial new twist: a vibration frequency calibrated to relax your muscles. Designed with the signature GRID pattern and a smaller diameter, the GRID VIBE gets deep into muscle tissue to help release tightness, relieve pain, improve flexibility, and enhance overall mobility.
Within the past five years, foam rolling has grabbed the attention of many scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs. Hundreds of studies have proven that foam rolling can improve range of motion, flexibility, and performance in addition to reducing muscle soreness, pain, and recovery time. While foam rolling may have its roots in therapy as a way to assist therapists with rehabilitation, it has progressed to being a tool used by the everyday person to improve movement and quality of life.
Runners are a tough lot—they hit the road to get in the miles in rain and sometimes sleet, snow or wind. Runners are known for soldiering through even when they’re having an off day or when something hurts. Getting in the miles is important, but so is taking the time to rest, recover and listen to your body.
Get Unstuck: How Sticky Fascia Keeps You From Moving
Fascia is connective tissue all throughout the body surrounding every muscle, organ, and nerve. When fascia becomes dehydrated—from either a lack of movement or repetitive overload—the fibers get closer and literally “stick” together forming a knot or adhesion. If left long enough, these adhesions thicken and the body gets “stuck” – this can be painful! Follow these steps to free your sticky fascia, and move and feel better.
