The Hyperice Hypervolt is a life changing device for anyone over 35! Sports injuries accumulate over the years and being active isn’t that easy anymore! It takes you longer and longer to recover the older you get! In your 40’s you don’t recover as quickly as you did in your 20’s. Well this device is the game changer!!the best massage tool ever made! It’s extremely durable and has 4 different heads! The 2 best advanced heads are the bullet and the tuning fork! The bullet is deep tissue massage and the tuning fork is great for the Achilles, calf and hamstrings!
If you are 35 and above this is a must purchase! If you have sports injuries this is a nice to have! If you are in competition sports this is also a must have!!

It will truly change your life! I was coming back from an injury and I would workout and my body wouldn’t be ready for the next session, I would just be too sore and my muscles and tendons were just too tight!

Using this device daily helped overcome that pain and stiffness! Now when I use it, I sometimes barely feel it. When it does hurt, you know that area is tight and needs to be worked on!

Again this device is a life changer and worth every penny!!!


Product Review: Mobility Tools – Beastie Ball Kit by Rumble Roller *

I was expecting just the ball and an entire kit with DVD showed up! I am doing a superset workout at the gym today so I can rush home and watch the DVD I am so psyched! I know how to use the products except the Beastie Bar! That looks like a torture device 😳😱😭

What’s in my Beastie Kit you ask?

20140303-183430.jpg
Of course the Regular & Firm Beastie Balls!

20140303-183545.jpg
And the Beastie Bar & Beastie Hook!

20140303-183926.jpg
And Jeff Alexander’s SMR Tips DVD (see it’s separate post here on this site)

I used a Beastie Ball for a split second and I can already tell you my days of a cheap lacrosse ball are over! This Beastie hurts so good! Is that what John Cougar Mellencamp was singing about?


Rumble Rollers bringing back the 80’s 😳

I did my entire legs with the Rumble Roller and let me tell you I feel great. However; some parts were excruciating because of my size. If you are over 225lbs I suggest using the Beastie Bar or I call it the Beastie Wand. It’s much easier to roll your entire quads: Teardrop, inner Quads, outer Quads and IT Band with the wand applying as little or as much pressure as needed rather than gravity dictating pressure! My Quads are also on fire and super sore from leg-day today!

**Update** March 3rd 2014
I am loving my Beastie Bar aka Beastie Wand! Because it’s just simply magical! My legs felt like a million bucks today at the gym and just a minute ago my shoulder was aching bad and I rolled it out against the wall with the wand on the stands and now it feels great! The pain is gone! Simply Magical! 👌


Product Review: Mobility Tools – Everlast Foam Roller (the Grid knockoff)

20130927-145355.jpg
I got it on Groupon and the deal wasn’t bad. It is much cheaper than the original Grid (you are paying for the name) Everlast is a fitness (boxing) company that has been around forever, so you know they will make a quality product.

Just because its foam doesn’t mean it’s soft! This thing feels like a rock under my back! I would not know it is foam! With my upper body size there is a lot of weight coming down on that thing and so far it held up.

I ran it under my back a few times and tonight I will do my back and my lats because today is back day at the gym.

I ran it under my thighs and hip for the IT band stretch and let me tell you, it was excruciatingly painful! It felt like I kept giving myself a Charlie horse!

Well I’m off to the gym so keep in touch and lets see how it works!

Remember to purchase Becoming a supple leopard and use it for beginner, intermediate and advances moves and don’t forget to get a lacrosse ball and add that to the mix. If you are short on time do one day with the ball and the next with the roller. It can’t hurt! Well it does hurt, it can’t be detrimental how’s that.

**Update** December 27th 2013
I love this roller!! At 290 lbs it held string under me without cracking! I am now 260 and use it at least 1-2times a week! I haven’t had back pain in a while! When I get discomfort I roll on it, my back cracks and off I go feeling like a million bucks! When I first got it I had to use it daily! Now I just do maintenance rolls! Usually the day before and day after a back workout.
