The fascia roll (“BLACKROLL®)
A few years back only a hand full of insiders knew about it. Today fascia rolls are the topic at hand and more often than not BLACKROLL® is used as a synonym to that trend.
Our fascia roll are functional tools made from hardened foal. They are ideal for self myofascial treatments (SMT). The rolls differ in their densities, from soft (e.g. BLACKROLL® MED) to very hard (e.g. BLACKROLL® PRO), as well as in their surfaces (e.g. BLACKROLL® GROOVE). We also created smaller versions that are ideal to work on your feet, hands and underarms (e.g. BLACKROLL® MINI).
When rolling you follow different fascia trains with different techniques and different pressures. The intensity with which you roll can be controlled by shifting your bodyweight on the roll.
Effects can be achieved in activating muscles, mobilization and regeneration. In addition to that a lot of coaches in the field of functional training have started creating exercises on the roll using it as an unstable surface.
