The best foam rollers for your sports recovery
Eva Foam Roller
This roller is made from closed cell foam that is soft to the skin.
It offers good resistance that does not feel like it is pushing you out or allowing you to sink in too much.
This is often a good roller to get started with as you will get good benefits without all the pain.
Over time and with long term use, these rollers tend to loose their firmness. You will start to see “tracks” where you regularly apply pressure.
High Density Foam Roller
This type of roller is more likely to last the distance with regular rolling. But it will require longer period of time to adapt to the firmness of the roll.
Similar in technology (solid core) to the Rumble, this is hollow internally with an outer shell that is mostly smooth.
With this roller you get the benefits the density has to offer your muscles.
But without the therapeutic discomfort the rumble provides. Ultimately the choice of these two will come down to personal preference and your training.
