Fascia rolls are available in different designs and sizes. The classic among them is the Blackroll. Some people even assume that this is the real name of all rolls. But in reality it's just the name of the most popular fascia roll.
Fascia rolls are available in the sizes mini, normal and extra wide. The size determines the training for which your roll is suitable. The structure of the rolls can vary as well. There are fascia rolls with a smooth surface and rolls with knobs or a grooved surface. These provide an extra strong massage of your muscles and tissue. Depending on your level of training and sensitivity to pain, the fascia roll is also available in different degrees of hardness. If you are a beginner or very sensitive to pain, you should start your fascia training with a soft roll. The medium-hard roll is suitable for all those whose sensitivity to pain is not so pronounced and who are not afraid of a short habituation phase. The hard fascia roll is recommended for people who are particularly insensitive to pain as well as competitive athletes who want to treat their fascia tissue intensively.
The fascia roll is not only available as a roll, but also as a ball and duoball. The duoball is particularly suitable for the treatment of the neck and shin bone, as the recess protects bony structures.
Dealing with the fascia roll
As with all sports exercises, the correct execution is also important with the fascia roll. This is the only way to achieve the full effect. You can imagine the use of the fascia roll as a self-massage. Like a good massage, the use of the fascia roll can be a bit painful at the beginning. During fascia training, as the name suggests, the fasciae are rolled out and actively massaged by the rolling movements. Even muscles underneath are massaged and activated at the same time, making them elastic and supple.
As always in sports, regularity is important in fascial training. It is best to massage yourself at least every two days with your fascia roll. So you will quickly feel the relaxing effect of the versatile roll.
