Wondering what to do with the BLACKROLL® tools and why?
Working out with BLACKROLL® has been established in the Functional Training, (performance) top sports and manual therapeutic scene for some time and has now arrived in broader circles and sectors. BLACKROLL® offers people of all ages and sport levels the possibility to improve their flexibility, balance, mobility and strength by doing simple exercises and performing self massage.
Myofascial release with BLACKROLL® is increasingly supported by scientific research and a wide range of therapists and treatments.
SMR, which stands for “self myofascial release”, is an effective technique to ease tension and adhesions in the muscles and its surrounding fascia. BLACKROLL® offers qualitative tools with various densities to target these tensions, providing an intense massage of the muscles and fascia, which has the similar effect as a sportmassage. Except with BLACKROLL®, you decide exactly what part of your body needs more attention.
Injuries from overuse, inflammation or even surgery can cause the fascia to scar or harden, which will give you that unwelcome stiff feeling restricting the body to be optimally mobile and flexible. Through self massage, hydration of the fascia is stimulated and will improve and restore the range of (joint) motion, reduce muscle prevent muscle ache and improve recovery of the muscles to eventually increase physical mobility, flexibility and thereby our performance.

What roll is suitable for my body weight?
In terms of body weight, there is no direct correlation for choosing a roll, except for the BLACKROLL MED (softest variant). The choice for a certain BLACKROLL density mostly depends on the users individual pain or sensitivity and how the roll (on what part of the body) is used. BLACKROLL urges you to keep in mind that the BLACKROLL MED is not suitable for balance exercises (standing on the roll) or for people with a body weight exceeding 70 kg. In general:.
BLACKROLL MED = suitable for beginners, pain sensitive persons, and highly tensed body parts, lighter weight persons
BLACKROLL Standard = suitable for beginners to advanced users, with an average pain sensitivity
BLACKROLL PRO = advanced users or professional athletes, very strong massage effect, heavy weight persons
