User Guide - Lower Body

Recommendations and best practices:

  • Identify trigger points, pause, and allow them to relax. Apply pressure for a period long enough for the tension to release.
  • Relax the muscle you are targeting and breathe deeply while rolling.
  • Own your rolling experience with as much or as little pressure as you are comfortable with, but discontinue any movement that intensifies pain.
  • A barbell collar may be used to prevent the roller from sliding off of the barbell.
  • When using the roller on a barbell in a rack, place a weight plate on the opposite end of the barbell heavy enough to keep the barbell secured within the rack.
  • Supporting your joints will help you to relax and achieve deeper targeting when using the barbell as a handle; such as placing a yoga block under your knee while rolling your quadriceps.
