What Run Oregon is Trying: Rollga Foam Roller

There are a lot of foam rollers out there to choose from and it can be a bit overwhelming. The Rollga Dynasty 5-in-1 Foam Roller is one such option and is toted as “The First Connective Therapy Foam Roller.” This roller brings regeneration to damaged connective tissues by aiding the circulation of oxygen-rich blood flow and helping get that tissue healthy again. It’s ideal for muscle recovery and great for stabilizing hips, aligning your back, and increasing your range-of-motion. Two bloggers active in the fitness world were eager to try it for their aches and pains.

Shelly’s Impressions: The Rollga foam roller is a dream. I tried the Rollga Dynasty and loved everything about it. Having recently obtained a certification in myofascial release, it was great to try many of the techniques with a firm, contoured roller. I love that, included with the roller was a detailed user guide. The guide was complete with visual cues and written instruction. Also included was a free app, for download. The app assists in foam rolling exercises, and includes featured exercises. It’s like having a virtual trainer with you as you work out tight muscles and knots on the Rollga. In addition, Rollga offers a  YouTube channel which is updated regularly to include new and current information. I’ve shopped for foam rollers, and they’re not cheap. The Rollga is a great price and with the app and youtube channel you will be sure to get the most from your Rollga Foam Roller.

Nikki’s Impressions: Like Shelly, I was really happy to see that a user guide accompanied the roller. Often, I’ve found that I don’t know a roller’s full capabilities unless I have a handy guide. This guide outlines a muscle anatomy guide and identifies body zones and where to place the roller for relief. Due to the unique body-shaped design of the Rollga, it’s contoured to reach trigger points and places that regular rollers can’t get to. The Rollga can help with headaches and stress, (I really loved massaging the back of my head which is an area often ignored,) back and neck pain, iliotibial band relief, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis amoung other ailments. The Rollga also comes with a carry strap so it’s totally portable.
