The 36" Half Foam Roller provides more stability than a full Foam Roller, making it a perfect balancing tool for beginners to intermediate users. Use the Half Foam Roller on either side - with the flat side on the ground for more stability, or round-side down to increase the challenge. Stand on the flat side of the half roller and rock back and forth to stretch the ankles and to build ankle strength.
Foam rollers are one of the most versatile pieces of equipment. For sports training, they help enhance balance, body awareness, flexibility, and dynamic strength. Incorporate the half roller into many exercises, Yoga poses, or Pilates routines to either provide support, deepen a stretch, or add a challenge.
The high density foam construction of this Half-Round Foam Roller provides firm support for all body types. The high density rollers (full round or half round) will last longer under daily use than those of regular open cell construction.
Choosing between the 36" and the 12" long Half-Round Roller depends on how you plan to use it. The 12" is more portable. But the 36" will provide more coverage if you want to use it running the length of your spine during ab work. Full round foam rollers are recommended for myo-facial release and self massage.
Half-round Foam Roller also available in a 12" length.
Round Foam Rollers are also available. The full round rollers can also be used for self-massage and myofacial release.
