Most athletes regardless of their sport has probably had an encounter or two with a foam roller. I like to say that I have had a "love-hate" or "hurts so good" relationship with foam rolling over the past few years. No matter how much you love it (or love to "hate" it), foam rolling is so beneficial for athletes in recovery and injury prevention.
While traditional foam rollers are good tools, there are a lot of hard to reach spots deep down that they don't reach. After getting a deep tissue massage recently, I was amazed at the spots that my therapist was able to hit with her thumbs. Dang, why can't I get that deep tissue treatment on the regular. Well, the Rumble Roller team reached out to me about try out a deep-tissue massage tool, Beastie, and it looked like a resolution to my desire for a regular deep-tissue massage at home.
The Beastie is also perfect for on the go needs as it is fairly small (about the size of a tennis ball) so it can go in suitcases, gym bags, desk, etc. Is it possible to whip out a foam roller and get on the floor of the office? Probably not for most people. With the Beastie, you can use it in a chair or on the wall for relief just about anywhere.
With a little lighter pressure, I put the Beastie in my hand to rub on tight spots in my quads. I am glad I used a less intense massage here because laying on it with full pressure would have been too much for me (at least for now), but this just shows the flexibility and options you have with using your Beastie.
