this is exponentially better than anything I've used for mobility and/or trigger point release!! It stays in place!! Since it stays in place you are easily able to finely pinpoint and target the areas that need the greatest work. Not sure if I've ever been able to do much for my own traps, but this did it. My entire rotator cuff? Yup. TFL. Glute medius. All the tricky spots that cause daily uncomfortableness. - Jessica M.
What are Acumobility Mobility Balls and why does and athlete need them?
The Acumobility ball is the first and only flat based trigger point ball specifically made for active mobility! This is a technique where you put the muscle through a compliement of motions and the ball stays in place and enforces a certain "trigger" point on the body for a complete and comprehensive release. This stable platform and "sticky" feel allows you to use the ball on any floor or wall surface so you can take your mobility anywhere you go. Trust us...we've tried it on a number of surfaces and we haven't found one it doesn't work on!
What's great about the mobility balls is the fact they are compact and travel easily without taking up to much space in the good ole' travel bag. You can really perform a fantastic massage whilst treating those hard to get to areas.
So what's the difference between the Level 1 and Level 2?
"The LEVEL 1 Ball is best for MODERATE-DEEP pressure trigger point release and best for beginners. This ball will be intense for most people!"
"The LEVEL 2 Ball is significantly firmer and meant for DEEP pressure trigger point release. Begin with this ball only if you are used to doing deep trigger point release regularly and want a tool that gets even deeper!"
If you are unsure on which one you should select you should do the "Level 1" and advance to the "Level 2" once you feel ready. Both are useful regardless of your level of need.
