Works well--smells awful
1 February 2012
Summary: The blue 31" is as rumble roller says plenty firm for most. I've had achilles and shoulder problems for years (10+), which rolling seems to have relieved more than any other treatment, tried most. The smell is/was nauseating (smells like no-mex, fire retardent clothing. I made a paste of bakingsoda covered it left it over-night. Still leave it outside whenever I can.
Summary: I have worked in physical therapy for over 15 years and I personally have used a foam roller daily for the past two years and on and off for the past 5 years. It was time to get the rumble roller which takes "roller" therapy to the next level. I have tried several rumble rollers and the one I purchased online was the cheapest - I didn't think you could go wrong with this piece of physical therapay equipment so I purchased it online thinking it was a "no brainer" and I...
Summary: I have been foam rolling with a less dense foam roller for months and it just wasn't enough for me any more. I weight train 3 times a week and run 3 times a week and I always have muscle tightness somewhere at any given moment. I upgraded to the extra firm (black) RumbleRoller and it is AMAZING. I use it every day to loosen up my calves, quads and back muscles.
Summary: After a couple of years using foam rollers ... starting with the less dense ones to the very hard dense ones to the hard ones with a plastic core ... I now have discovered the very best! It may take a while to acclimate to the nobs, but wow, with daily use, what a great massage tool. After a long run, bike ride or strength training workout, it really is amazing how "refreshed" you will feel after 10 minutes on the extra hard, long rumbleroller!
Summary: this is a pretty nice product but i am not confident in the build material. i got the black which is supposed to be extra dense but i have knobs wrinkling and starting to get soft already. I've had this for less that 3 weeks and it was bought from an authorized distributor.
Summary: So I went to my local store to buy a tredmill and saw a few of these laying around. I was very intrigued to see what it was used for. The salesmen told me it was to relief stress from certain pressure points on the body. The finger like bumps make it get into your muscle, similar to fingers. I did more research online and it said the same thing.
Summary: I recently purchased P90X2 which use this in their work outs. It is wonderful, it really helps get rid of muscle tension and aches. I always have very tight calf muscles and just a few minutes on this drastically improve the tension in my legs. My boyfriend suffers from chronic pain and this has really helped him. Worth every penny I paid.
Summary: So this is the new hotness from Tony Horton for P90X2 but as soon as I saw it I knew I needed it. I went for the Black Beauty because of it being 30% denser. I expect that this product will not be for everyone because it is really solid and knobby. At first it is painful but the good kind of pain, like going right to the edge of a charlie horse. I'm the type that likes deep pressure. I barely feel most massages so this thing gets right into the muscle and digs in.
Summary: I love this thing! Its like getting a message whenever I want. I was debating if I should get the Black firmer version or the blue softer version. I actually found one at my local gym that was the soft version. The soft version is actually pretty stiff, it takes a little while to get used to how firm the soft one is but once you do its great.
