The Rumble Roller
“I really don’t think I need buns of steel. I’d be happy with buns of cinnamon.”
I mentioned in my last post that I recently purchased a Rumble Roller because I’ve been having some aches a pains related to running. It’s a great product and it accomplishes what it advertises, but is also a little like having a deep tissue massage administered to you by a sumo wrestler. I have a few words to say about it:
*It hurts like a b*%ch, but it is worth it. It’s around $75 but I’m happy that I spent the extra money. There is no comparison between the foam rollers that I’ve used at the YMCA and this thing.
*If you have a dog, it will be scared of the Rumble Roller at first, but then they’ll be inseparable.
*Don NOT under any circumstances roll the upper back while rolling a hoodie or you will find yourself having the following text conversation:
Me: Girl don’t wear a hoodie when using a foam roller. The hood WILL get caught under the roller and almost choke you. This may require more coordination than I actually have.
BFF: Girl yea – I never thought a foam roller could be dangerous but if anyone can make it dangerous it’s you.
BFF: Take that as a compliment
Me: I don’t know how that’s a compliment but I guess so.
BFF: Robin Grant: taking ordinary objects and making them dangerous.
Before I used the RR for the first time I searched the web for some instructional videos and stumbled across one on YouTube that wasn’t quite an instructional video, but it entertained me therefore I am sharing it. It just so happens that you can also watch it on the Rumble Roller website. PG-13
Here is another video I found helpful. An introduction to the RR!
Now go get yourself one!
