Fred's Favorite Tools for Muscle Fatigue

Posted on June 08, 2019 by Fred Robinson

Training equals getting beat up and extreme training means getting pounded all the time!  I have always been a believer in taking care of myself.  Even with this said, though, I have still experience with a wide array of injuries and strains as I am sure you can relate. Below are a few of the tools that I use to treat muscle fatigue.  They are easy to take with you when traveling and have helped me on numerous occasions.

This deep tissue massage roller self-adjusts for different body sizes and targets the IT-bands, quads, hamstrings, calves, shins, gluteus, arms and more. It takes the work out of rolling and is compact enough to take anywhere.

Muscle and tendon pain melt away under the touch of the CM7. It penetrates deep into muscle tissue to relieve pain and speeds muscle recovery. This is probably the most convenient to travel with if you are choosing just one of these recommendations.

This award winning device features three speeds of high-intensity vibration. It allows you to warm up, activate, and recover faster and more effectively than other rollers.

Depending upon your sport this may be the perfect towel for you.  When I am playing tennis, having a good grip is paramount.  This is a very lightweight towel that is totally absorbent.  They last a long time and get better with age.  I never go on the court without these.

He has been ranked No.1 in the United States in senior tennis in both singles and doubles multiple times during his career.

During his 30-year career, Robinson has also received many distinctions such as the Slew Hester Player of the Year Award, the National Gil Roberts Sportsmanship Award and the Best Senior Tournament of the Year Award. Robinson founded Body Helix in 2008 when he observed that compression gear designed for muscle and joint pain/injuries had minimal effect, was uncomfortable, and was decades behind the advances of fabric science. This motivated Robinson to search for a material that would do three things better than any other material in the world of compression: stretch, rebound, and stay in place. His passion for creating high-quality, eco-friendly compression products is demonstrated through his continuous efforts in product research, development and design.
