Tiny But Mighty
No matter if you prefer to roll before a workout or afterward, you know the deep tissue relaxation you feel after a successful mission. This little-but-mighty Orb is the perfect sports recovery tool that you need to work into smaller areas like the soles of your feet, around your shoulder blades, and up your neck.
When it comes to using your Orb, it's really up to you how you want to roll. When you roll the ball along a muscle group, like quadriceps and adductors, you move from the top of the muscle straight down to the bottom (or vice versa). As you roll, you want to make sure that you don't pick up your Orb and move it from spot to spot. Instead, you want to travel down the path of your muscle. This will help ensure that you get a maximum release for ultimate relief. On the other hand, when you're focused on groups like the hamstrings and calves, take the strumming technique for a spin. To strum the muscle, think of strumming a guitar. Imagine your muscles are the strings. This means you want to move against the grain of the muscle, moving from side to side instead of from origin to insertion. For joint soreness, start with the Orb around the divot of your hip or near your shoulder blade. Then, keep your body still so that you're not rolling and only move the limb nearest to the joint. So for the hip, allow your leg to open and close without moving the rest of your body. It's the same with the shoulder, simply move the arm nearest the ball in whichever direction feels best for you.
Can't decide what to roll first? All sizes of the Orb work well on the glutes, piriformis, hamstrings, calf muscles, IT band, quads, adductors, pecs, along the spine, and even the muscles in the lower back. But because of the Mini's ultra-versatile 3" size, this Pro-Tec invention also works wonders in the feet, neck, pectoralis minor, and shoulder blades. Wherever you roll, enjoy the massage with the Pro-Tec Athletics Orb Extreme Mini.
