Blackroll® - The sporty aid for connective tissue and muscles
Weakened and agglutinated connective tissue can lead to painful muscle stiffness in the long run.
Fascia rollers from Blackroll® have been available in practices
and fitness studios for several years and are also used diligently at home by athletes for regeneration and prevention.
The so-called fasciae include the soft tissue components of the connective tissue, such as ligaments, tendons and firm connective tissue layers.
Over time, fasciae can stick together and in the long run lead to injuries, but also to reduced athletic performance.
Regular massage with a fascia roller helps to loosen stuck fascia, prepare muscle groups for training and mobilise joints.

How does the training with fascia rollers work?
To loosen agglutinated fasciae, it is enough to train once to three times a week for 5 to 10 minutes. Results can be seen quite quickly. If you stay on the ball and integrate fascia training into your sports programme, you can expect better stability and improved movements after just a few weeks.
Exercise for the back
Lie down on a mat on the floor. Now take the fascia roller and place it under your back around the thoracic spine. Now slowly roll up and down. If a spot is particularly painful, you should roll slowly over this spot a few times.
Exercise for the knees
Knee pain is often connected with stuck fasciae. Lie on the fascia roller with the front or back of your thigh and slowly roll from the hip bone to the knee or from the buttocks to the back of the knee and back. Repeat this exercise several times on the front and back.
Exercise for the hips
Sitting for long periods of time (in the office, for example) often puts one-sided strain on the ligaments, cartilage, and joint capsules. One consequence can be adhesion of the fasciae. To bring about relief, training with the Blackroll® is recommended. Sit with your buttocks on the roller. Place the leg of the side to be treated on the thigh of the other thigh and slowly roll up and down. Then repeat the exercise on the other side.
Why are Blackroll® fascia rollers available in different degrees of hardness?
The different degrees of hardness of the fascia rollers are necessary because people have different sensations of pain and different strengths of the connective tissue. As a beginner, you should first start with the "soft" or "medium" degree of hardness. Soft fascia rollers are mainly used in yoga and Pilates. A workout can already be quite intense, depending on how pronounced your pain sensation is. The soft fascia roller is about 20% softer than the medium hardness. The medium fascia roller is the standard model and is used in sports and therapy. Hard fascia rollers are about 50% harder than the standard model. They are suitable for competitive athletes and athletes.
Which Blackroll® surfaces are available?
Blackroll® rollers are available with smooth and ribbed surfaces. Beginners should first get used to training with the smooth surface. This is already very intensive. The grooved surface has an even stronger effect and is particularly activating.
