Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Foam rollers, mus­cle mas­sagers–– these will give your work­out a boost. Fe­bru­ary is a great time to in­tro­duce new as­pects to your train­ing that will help you get even more out of your work­out. Adding foam rolling and self mas­sag­ing tools into your regime can help with myofascial re­lease. This is the process of rolling out tight mus­cles and relieving ten­sion. It can ease mus­cle sore­ness, in­crease flex­i­bil­ity and im­proves cir­cu­la­tion. Here we sug­gest some of the prod­ucts avail­able: Clas­sic Foam Roller: The long, cylin­dri­cal shape is per­fect for self-mas­sage and work­ing deeper into the mus­cle, not only to ease mus­cle sore­ness but also to help speed up mus­cle re­cov­ery. This re­ally ben­e­fits your sports per­for­mance. Thera Cane: The unique shape of the Thera Cane mas­sager al­lows you to work spe­cific mus­cles across the body. It is par­tic­u­larly use­ful for hard-to-reach up­per-body mus­cles such as those around the neck and shoul­ders, and down the back.

The Stick: The Stick's slimmer, hand-held de­sign will al­low you to tar­get mus­cles more pre­cisely, mak­ing it a good choice for those al­ready fa­mil­iar with a foam roller. Trig­ger Point Nano Foot Roller: It has been specif­i­cally de­signed to im­prove flex­i­bil­ity and re­lieve mi­nor mus­cu­lar aches and pains by pro­vid­ing the same sen­sa­tion as a mas­sage ther­a­pist's fin­ger­tips. So pick one, and get crack­ing.
