Do you feel your muscles all tie up in a knot after an exercise routine?
Foam rollers may be the key to loosen up the muscle knot.
After starting an exercise routine 3 months back where I would run 2 to 3 times a week, I find my calves muscles giving way during jogs and calling out for a deep massage. In between the runs, I had gone for leg massages. It does soothe the muscles for another run or two but the pain always comes back.

|No Pain, No Gain|
I use the Fascianator II , the hardest foam roller in the market for my pre-workout warm out and post workout cool down routine. The high density spiked black EVA form is designed for pro athletics. Using the recommended exercises, I was able to feel my calves loosening and ready for a new run. That said, it is great to be more self reliant on recovery. With control, I can finally focus on getting into shape and start reshaping the Dad Bod.
The Foam roller is also great for daily use, especially for office workers who are seated for most of the time. A simple stretching exercise on the roller can help you relief muscle aches after prolonged sitting in front of a computer.

Foam Rollers comes in different sizes and density. For beginners who find the spiky variant a little too intimidating, you can opt for the beginner version, the Paperclip or the Centenarian.
