If you do not know the use of Roller Foam For training we recommend that before you continue reading take a look at our Previous Article where we explain in detail what it is, how to use it, benefits and contraindications
El foam roller best known is a foam cylinder It comes in various formats in terms of hardness and surface (smooth or grated).
Then we tell you nyour experience with different products of BLACK ROLL that we have been using for a month, mainly to recover after training sessions but also in some workouts as an aid to warm up the muscle before exercise.
BLACKROLL offers a multitude of roller foam Of different hardness, shape and size manufactured from an ecological perspective (environmentally friendly), free of chemicals and propellants.
Of all its products we have been able to use the BLACKROLL Standard, mini y ball.
It has a cylindrical shape of 30x15cm and medium hardness.
It is the most frequent among athletes and physically active people without pathologies. Can be used on any muscle group and despite its light appearance in terms of weight, it is quite rigid to produce a pronounced massage with each pass on the muscle.
Our experience in muscles of both the lower train and the upper train has been very satisfactory. The first days we control the pressure of each shoot depending on the sensitivity in each part of the body and progressively the rest of the days we have been able to increase this pressure with the body weight itself.
For example, filming on the back muscles of the legs was a bit painful, so we did not exert extra pressure in the first week.
During the second week crossing a leg above the wheel we get more intensity in the shoot without reaching the pain.
In addition, we have used Blackroll Standar to warm the lower train muscles before gym and race workouts, performing about 20-30 seconds of shooting at a speed of one second towards each direction.
The sensation of starting the exercise with the previously activated muscle has been very satisfactory.
The mini cylinder has a size of 15 × 5,3 cm that makes this Blackroll a ideal travel companion. Lightweight, compact and useful for any muscle group
Its use is more focused on specific parts, so that you can better influence rolling on key points and allows the versatility of being used on the ground (plantar fascia), the wall (back muscles) or even a table (arm muscles).
We have used it mainly for foot (plantar fascia and instep) checking that the possibility of pressure is greater than with the Standard and much more comfortable to perform.
The Blackroll in sphere or ball format allows us applications of greater precision, pressure and depth.
In our case we have used the ball for shooting on the gluteus and trapezium, since we needed extra pressure at localized points that we did not reach effectively with cylindrical shapes.
Conclusion and recommendations
Therefore, whether you are a sports person or physically active, we recommend that you try to use it mainly as a method to aid muscle recovery.
As for the model and size, our recommendation is to have a large format (Blackroll Standard for example) and a small one, so that you can cover large muscle groups and more localized points, as well as take it in your competitions.
