If you are looking for information on how to use a foam roller, the internet has many sites with videos. Try bodyspex.com and youtube for starters. The videos offer helpful commentary about what should be accomplished during a particular exercise, how your body might/should feel, and mechanisms for altering an exercise to alleviate tenderness.
Again, if you are new to foam rolling, please give it a go. It may not cure all that ails you but it may be a good start to treating pain and tightness on your own Courtesy of Vergo .

I have owned foam rollers prior to this one. I love using a foam roller for myofascial massage/release throughout the entire body. However, I also use the foam roller as an aid to weight training: most frequently, I'll lie on the roller for exercises like chest presses and skull crushers.
When I received this Black High Density Foam Roller from Vergo, the first thing that I noticed was the high quality. The texture of the roller is smooth and even, with nicely rounded edges. I can easily imagine that this roller will maintain its shape over time, whereas other rollers I have owned have tended to develop soft spots.
Other than the quality, this roller is called "high density" for good reason--it is VERY firm. In addition to foam rolling, I use various other products for self-massage--e.g., therapy balls, the Acu-Masseur--and I do tend to prefer quite firm pressure. However, even for me, this roller was a bit close to being TOO firm. I tried it with the 15-minute massage routine included on the video The Fitness Fix Intermediate DVD, and I had to be VERY minimal in applying pressure at times.
In summary, I would recommend this roller to those who are experienced in using a foam roller and who are comfortable with handling a significant amount of pressure. I would not suggest this roller for beginners, as the firmness might be too uncomfortable for those new to foam rolling.
This product has a nice finish and appears to be well made. It came with a black drawstring bag rather than the blue one pictured on Amazon. Like most foam rollers it doesn't come with any instructions, so if you don't know how to use a foam roller, you can look on the internet or buy a book. I suggest some of the You Tube videos.
The current price of $39.99 for this product on Amazon is about $10 more than what a virtually identical product (I previously bought one) costs on sale at Sports Authority, which is a leading sports store chain in my area, though my prior roller didn't come with a carrying case (not an important accessory to me). You can also find what are supposed to be comparable rollers on Amazon and other internet sites for half the price of this product, though make sure that what you are getting is high density and that it doesn't have any reported problems.
Bottom line: This is a good quality product, but somewhat overpriced.
