The only way to build up muscle is to push it to its limits, switching up the moves and resistance regularly will improve your stamina and create gains, the downside to this is that your muscles can often feel stiff and sore the next day.
DOMS, (delayed onset muscle soreness) is a reminder that you have pushed your body but could also be a sign that you didn’t warm up or warm down correctly or maybe a combination of both. Foam rollers, love them or hate them, are an effective way of massaging deep into the tissue, this foam roller from Pulseroll brings a new dynamic by vibrating deep into the muscles helping to increase blood flow and reduce next day soreness. The Vibrating Foam Roller comes in Black or Red and the new and improved motor that offers four vibration levels. Level one produces 1300 RPM, level two 2000 RPM, level three 1300 to 2700 RPM (Pulsating) and level four 3700 RPM, the rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 240 minutes with an average life of 3 hours.
The levels can easily be adjusted via the buttons on the device or if you have got yourself into an awkward position there is a handy remote that can be used instead. Due to the motor it is heavier than your average foam roller at 1kg, the inner tube is solid unlike traditional foam rollers and with its 15cm circumference it can be difficult to hold onto with one sweaty hand. If you are using the roller on floorboards be prepared for things to get loud, the vibrations are very strong so you will get some odd looks in the gym but man does it feel good, it borders on that almost painful level and afterwards your muscles feel more relaxed and supple. The Pulseroll Vibrating Foam Roller isn’t subtle by any means, but it helps with all those knots and tension, use it to warm up muscles before an exercise and flush away lactic acid at the end of a session to help aid recovery.
