The R8 Massage Roller from Roll Recovery is a revolutionary new massage tool sure to keep your legs fresh and aid in proper post exercise recovery. Jeremy Nelson, husband of elite marathoner Adriana Pirtea-Nelson was looking for a way to provide his wife the recovery benefits of professional massage after her workouts at once, without having to make an appointment to be treated. After several prototypes, the R8 Roller was born and caught on quickly amongst both elite and everyday athletes looking for a quick and convenient way to prevent post workout muscle soreness and flush lactic acid from lower leg muscles to aid in the recovery process. The patented technology self adjusts to different leg sizes and targets the quads, hamstrings, IT-bands, gluteus, calfs, shins, hip-flexors and more.
The beauty of the R8 Roller is how portable and convenient it is- it weighs about 2 pounds and with dimensions of 11.5 x 9.5 inches, packs easily into luggage to be taken on the road. The wheels and springs adjust automatically depending on which muscle group you're targeting, and unlike foam rollers and sticks, it's easy to get the right amount of force and pressure to get the most out of the massage. Plus, its super easy to use- you'll never have to roll around on the floor with an oversized roller, or practically fold your body in half to massage out a hard to reach part of your lower legs.
Bottom line, if you're looking for a convenient, durable, and effective alternative to foam rollers and other stick based rollers, try the Roll Recovery R8. Your legs will thank you!
