Who wants to apply some myofascial compression techniques to their tight, overwrought muscles? Second only to the hands of a 6' Swedish co-ed who's been milking cows since birth, the TriggerPoint GRID foam roller penetrates and plows over knots and kinks to provide muscular relief and improve mobility.

Potential benefits of regular foam rolling include: decreased muscle and joint pain; increased circulation and flexibility; improved range-of-motion; better balance; and improved gait. The TriggerPoint GRID, unlike smooth-surfaced spongy or Styrofoam-y rollers, was designed to maintain its shape over time. Repeated, daily use should not compromise its integrity thanks to a construction consisting of a rigid, hollow plastic core covered in dense EVA foam.

GRID rollers also distinguish themselves with a varying landscape of 3D surfaces. Intended to replicate the feeling of a massage therapistís hands, TriggerPoint cylinders include sections that are wide and flat like the palm, long and tubular like the fingers, and small and firm like the finger tips. The idea is to aerate the tissues in contact with the textured roller to promote blood and oxygen flow, a feat TriggerPoint says flat surface that simply compress tissue, blood, and oxygen together cannot muster.

GRID rollers come in Mini (5" long), Original (13") and Grid 2.0 (26") sizes, plus an Extra Firm Original version.

The TriggerPoint GRID foam roller is a top Dude Gift for an Athlete pick.
