Trigger Point Starter Set

Use for: Post-workout muscle massage

Dr. Metzl says: Scientific data have shown that massage quickens muscle recovery. And if you can do your own massage at home, that’s great. The Trigger Point tools are essentially similar to a foam roller but can get in deeper.

Fix yourself: Use the ball or roller to get into small or hard-to-reach muscle groups such as the calf or hip abductors.
