Check out my favorite new rolling tool, the MobilityWOD Supernova from Rogue Fitness. It’s about the size of a softball, is quite dense like a la crosse ball, and has grooves, divots, and points all the way around it. Because of the little points everywhere, it’s able to really get into the muscle and break up the gristle and knots that pull and create injuries much better than a traditional foam roller or even a la crosse ball. I’m astounded at how much it has been improving my tight glutes and achy hamstrings. I hesitated to buy it at $40, but so far, it’s been totally worth it. Plus, it will fit in my suitcase just fine as I travel to the Boston marathon!
Check out this video of Kelly Starret explaining and using it: Kelly Starrett explains the Supernova.
