Improve your posture, increase blood circulation and maximize your performance

Healthy fascia creates a so-called "catapult mechanism" and this elastic recoil has a positive impact on your athletic performance. Fascial expert Dr. Robert Schleip explains: "Studies have revealed that an elastic recoil occurs when you convert energy temporarily stored in tendons and fascia into a free push. It's fueled by the impact force of each foot strike. The recoil generated by our Achilles tendons, plantar fascia and the fascia associated with our muscles provides up to 50 percent of the propulsive force for each stride. Tendons are the major driver of recoil. At rest, their tough collagen fibers line up in parallel wavy lines, but under tension, the wavy patterns straighten, thus allowing a stretch of 4 to 6 percent. The stiffer our tendons, the more energy it takes to stretch them."

Increase your flexibility and mobility - reduce injury risks

BLACKROLL training on a regular basis not only leads to a more flexible body, it's also an ideal tool for reducing injury risks. The newly gained flexibility helps to prevent injuries to muscles, tendons and ligaments. BLACKROLL exercises ensure that the internal architecture of your body keeps getting hydrated and that it remains elastic. You'll be able to increase your range of motion. Professional athletes like Dirk Nowitzki, Lindsey Vonn, and even the players of the German National Football Team use foam rolling exercises in order to reduce injury risks, to regenerate, and to increase their mobility.
