The Sweetest Pain - Myofascial Release with a Rolling Pin

May 15, 2015 2 min read

By now, I hope you've come to reap the benefits of regular foam rolling and have made it part of your workout program. I always make my clients roll for 5 to 10 minutes before a workout session to loosen up before their workouts. Rolling after a workout is also beneficial as it may reduce muscle soreness. And if you're already sore, it's an even better time to get rolling for some sweet relief. But sometimes a foam roller just ain't enough. Enter, my favourite weapon: the rolling pin. At my gym I use a wooden one I bought from the dollar store, nothing fancy at all! You can, of course, buy a fancy tool that does the same thing and costs 10 times more. But why? Was it leg day yesterday? Are your sore quads preventing you from getting on and off the toilet with grace? Take a seat on said toilet, or better yet a chair, grab your rolling pin and go for it. Start at the top outer thigh and roll back and forth in small increments. When you find a particularly sore spot or knot spend a bit more time there rolling and also by applying steady pressure. Roll it out 'til the knot is gone or you simply can't take it anymore. Work your way all over your quad. The rolling pin trick is also especially awesome for calves and the side of your neck. Now, if you have someone who love you or a trainer like me, get them to roll you like cookie dough. A partner can really get into your ITBs (side of your thigh), hamstrings, glutes and your back. Be warned, this is intense. Rolling pins are hard. Avoid rolling over bony bits and joints; stick to fleshy, muscle-ly parts. For more trainer tips head over to Traineredith.com Traineredith.comBR1

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
