Roll recovery review

Most runners love to get a massage. Not only does it feel great, but it can also help speed recovery, reduce muscles soreness and facilitate injury healing.

This R8 by Roll Recovery is the most amazing tool! I’ve had it 4days and used it daily. It’s like a deep tissue massage 💆 💖 that I can control and really focus on the specific Areas I want to. 



 My calves are so tight from running & it actually contributes to plantar fasciitis when I start doing marathon training mileage. I’m planning to use this daily to improve my flexibility (mainly in my calves) , prevent injury, improve blood flow to my muscles, & help my body recover quickly. Here’s a video of myself using it today. But you can also check out this video for the how-to from the founder/inventor: https://vimeo.com/75995476


It costs  $119 (I got it with their Christmas discount – 10% off).  And I believe it’s worth it. It digs in more than a foam roller, and is less effort for me than using a roller. I can actually use this one just sitting at my desk or on the couch. 

Great invention & tool to have. The most effective types of massage for runners are A.R.T. , deep tissue, & trigger point. The R8 covers all of these. 


It’s also really important to drink lots of water 💦 when utilizing this. I find it actually makes me thirsty. I drink about 1.5-2gallons of water a day to help flush out the toxins that the muscles release when they are massaged. 



Happy new year everyone!!!!
