What? Lululemon Double Roller Mini, £38
What is it? A travel-size foam roller that lets you release tension on the go.
The verdict: “If you’re not familiar with a foam roller, you are in for a treat. Rolling out before a workout increases blood flow to the muscles and connective tissue, which not only improves performance, but helps to avoid injuries. Foam rolling after exercise also reduces soreness and speeds up recovery.
I’ve tried my share of foam rollers which all seem to be pretty effective, but what I like most about this Lululemon roller is that it’s travel-sized. I can easily toss it into my bag since it doesn’t take up much space – perfect whether you’re heading to the gym or park for your workouts.
The two-in-one rollers have different designs and functions: the interior roller is harder and has bigger grooves to get deeper into the muscles (great for relieving back tension) and the exterior roller is meant to massage arms and legs. Although the texture looks harsh, it feels comfortable. I use it both before and after my workouts, and I would recommend the same to my clients.”
