What we think
I think David Bowie put it best with his hit "Under Pressure". Rad Roller's Rad Rod had pressure in mind when they devised this weapon of choice. With a number of configurations and add-ons to up your recovery and mobility game it's truly a tool everyone should own in their quiver.
So what is the The Rad Rod and why do I need one? Rad Roller says "The RAD Rod is fully loaded with a steel core and soft outer shell that stick it to tension like nobody’s business. The slender design minimizes surface area so you can fine-tune your pressure without pain—even on bony areas like the shins. That means tight muscles and built-up toxins better watch their backs because this rod rocks concentrated release and maximum relief the way only RAD can."
So when we first saw this...we knew we had to get our hands on one. We have used it after countless "lactate crushing" workouts and have to say....we have "flushed" out the demons in our legs on a number of occasions. It's such a killer tool that you are in complete control of pressure on. So that's truly what makes this one of the more unique items on the market. Here are some of the finer details that you should know should you want to take your recovery to the next level.

HOW WE USE IT
After our workouts, we like to make time (yes...this means you need to make time!!) to stretch and roll out the legs and back. We usually try and use this rod and roll out 3-4 times per week if your an athlete that runs tight. Start in very small amounts of time and work into a routine. Your body will thank you!
