The RumbleRoller Manipulates Soft Tissue - Like a Massage Therapist!
The surface of the RumbleRoller contains specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist. As you roll over the top of the RumbleRoller, the bumps continuously knead the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in multiple directions. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain. By design, the RumbleRoller's bumps are firmer than muscle tissue, but much softer than bone, so they deflect out of the way if they contact your spine or other bony protrusions.
Add Another Dimension to Your Foam Roller Program
The RumbleRoller's massaging action can be further intensified by changing your movement from a back-and-forth rolling motion to a side-to-side rocking motion. That's because the RumbleRoller's bumps have an asymmetrical shape that allows them to flex more easily in one direction. During rolling movements (i.e. the most common roller exercises, with the roller moving beneath you), the bumps flex relatively easily, and provide a wiping-type massage pressure. However, if you rock from side-to-side toward the RumbleRoller's ends, the bumps are forced to flex in a direction in which they're designed to be somewhat stiffer. This creates a deeper "digging" pressure.

I use mine for front back and sides of the upper legs where it is much superior to the smooth foam rollers. I also use it for my neck by laying it under my neck while on my back. I turn my head left & right as far as possible and get a nice massage there. I also lay face down with head turned to the side and move back and forth to massage front of the neck on this device. Be careful in this position though, if you get light headed then back off the pressure as you may be restricting blood flow to the brain.
I personally do not use this much on my back though for many it can be great. For my back I use very hard rubber balls like La Crosse Balls or the hard rubber dog balls you find in Petsmart. Those are the core of my self massage for trigger points on back, upper arms, sometimes the outside of the upper legs (aka abductors, facia Lata etc) The balls are also good for sitting on for the glutes. The rumble roller is good for this too I just like the deeper more pointed pressure of the hard balls.
A final product I am looking at but have not yet bought is the Super Nova massage ball about the size of a cantaloupe which, like rumble roller, also has hard knobs but these are flat topped. Take a look at that as part of your self massage tool kit.
Good luck. Let me know if you find any other interesting deep tissue products.
I am racked with neuro-muscular pain, trigger points, etc. and have tried just about every product and service on the market. If your body is stupid like mine, I would recommend (in this order):
Rumble Roller, Grid, or any comparable foam roller
Rogue Supernova (if you can find one in stock)
Tiger Tail, or similar stick roller
Kong Large Doggy Ball
Peanut shaped balls, or tape two lacrosse balls together
Bouncy balls, golf balls, wooden, plastic or rubber balls of various sizes and hardnesses.
A better pillow and or bed
You don't deserve to live in pain, and you don't have to. Try things until you find things that can smash your muscles until your pain go away. It can and will get better.
The day I received this foam roller, my lower back was giving me issues and I had just gotten off of work. I spent a good 20 minutes rolling out my hamstrings, hips, lower back and worked all the way up to my neck. The following day the impingement I had the day before was completely resolved and I felt like I had more range of motion.
This item is well worth its price tag. You could spend $100 to get an hour deep tissue massage, or you could spend half the amount and get this roller. I used my buddy's crossfit foam roller and always enjoyed it, this roller is definitely firmer as I chose the hardest one I could find. If you don't like deep tissue, I suggest picking up the regular foam roller because this item will not work if you're unable to relax into it.
Word to the wise! If you have never foam rolled, STAY AWAY! This product isn't for novice rollers, it will cause intense pain and discomfort. This is more appropriate for those that have experience in using a foam roller and have gotten to a point where their current one doesn't do the job.
In terms of ruggedness and durability, I give it a 4.5/5. I have noticed a few of the knobs are starting to look weathered, with stress marks. In fairness to the manufacturer, this is something that might not be avoidable with the current design. These knobs protrude quite a bit and they're made of foam. So I would imagine 260lbs consistently on it, could cause this. Other than this, I haven't had any issues with it. I am justifying the mark of 4.5/5 because of the price. Even though it is foam, at the end of the day I feel that for the premium price they're charging, they could perhaps come up with a composite material that is more durable for the knobs.
If you're looking for the best foam roller out there, this is it!
