Looking for some serious tension release, but have no partner willing to give daily massages? The Muscle Max Massage Ball enables you to work out knots & stress all on your own. Feel the deep release of YOUR Trigger Point today. WHAT IS MYOFASCIAL RELEASE? By relaxing contracted muscles, myofascial release therapy (MFR) improves blood circulation & stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles. This therapy normally requires paying for a session at a clinic or health center. The Muscle Max ball is a great home based alternative… without the expensive doctor fees. Residual stress leaves behind tension in the body... especially the back. Rolling on a regular basis helps prevent tension build up & provides much needed relief for strained muscles. BALL SIZE: The ball is 3.2 inches diameter which is right in between a tennis ball and a softball. It’s made of high density rubber to withstand weights up to 500lbs. This allows for rigorous full bodyweight exercises & Ultra-Deep tissue massages. Wall Crawl – Press the ball between your back and the wall. Work out the tensest areas. Quad Rollout – Lay on your side, place ball underneath quads, use arms to roll back & forth. Sitting Foot Massage – Place ball under foot & apply as much pressure as is pleasant. Glute Trigger Point – Laying on your back with knees bent, place ball underneath butt & roll until you find a trigger point. Shoulder Self Massage – Roll ball around neck/ shoulder area to roll out tension leftover from exercise or stress. Body recovery is an important part of a good fitness routine & rolling before or after a workout can help. Spend 5 to 10 minutes rolling out your sorest muscle groups before or after each workout. You'll likely be at your sorest 1-2 days after the workout, so listen to your body & give it what it asks for!
