You probably have a foam roller somewhere in your home. You likely have the best intentions of using it someday. Maybe you’ve even packed it along for a vacation. (Travel is a time to reset, right?) But time after time, you’ve skipped foam rolling. There’s always a reason. It’s difficult. It’s uncomfortable. It’s confusing. It’s time to make that foam roller—and all the excuses surrounding it—a part of your past. The 2010s were your decade of avoidance. The 2020s are the decade for embracing a new kind of wellness routine: rocking.
The TRX Rocker is a new myofascial release tool which makes Self Applied Tissue Therapy (SATT) more accessible for the average person. With three intensity levels, this is the SATT tool you’ve been waiting for.
The TRX Rocker comes with a series of exercises for users of all levels that target the neck, back, hamstrings, quadriceps, hips, glutes, calves and ankles. On the TRX Training YouTube channel, physical therapist Chris Nentarz breaks down how to use the TRX Rocker to address each muscle group in an easy-to-follow video.
The TRX Rocker is particularly helpful at targeting the neck (or suboccipital) muscles to help improve mobility and alleviate strain and tension, which often leads to chronic headaches. Most foam rollers simply lift the head and neck but lack a stabilizing feature to enable effective tissue release techniques. The geometric design of the TRX Rocker allows users to effectively target this area and the three distinct intensity zones allow users to reach the level of intensity they need. The TRX Rocker is available in two sizes: a 13-inch model for $49.95 and a 26-inch model for $69.95.
Myofascial release isn’t a task reserved for athletes. Mayo Clinic explains that “myofascial pain differs from other types of pain because it originates in ‘trigger points,’ which are related to stiff, anchored areas within the myofascial tissue.” But trigger points can be tough to isolate. The pain from delayed onset muscle soreness can result in myofascial trigger points. There’s also a chronic version of this type of pain, called Myofascial Pain Syndrome. No matter what the cause may be, your body can benefit from rocking.
Ready to bid farewell to the non-stop achiness that you’ve been attributing to aging? With just a few minutes of rocking each day, the TRX Rocker helps to put you back in charge of your wellness and mobility. Now is the time, and the TRX Rocker is the tool to make it happen.
