This week, Dr. Chris is here to walk us through all the different ways you can use the KoreSurge vibrating foam roller to maximize your post-workout recovery and help your muscles repair.
What Is KoreSurge?
When should I use KoreSurge?
KoreSurge is super effective before workouts as a way to increase your pain threshold and to prepare your muscles to take a beating but it’s SUPER effective in post-workout recovery. Per Dr. Chris’ suggestion, it’s great to use on sore leg muscles after running or cycling. Not only will KoreSurge’s innovative technology help to break up tension in your muscles and relieve soreness, but it also promotes proper blood flow, and improves flexibility and range of motion.
How Do I Use KoreSurge?
1. Achilles TendonPrevent injury and eliminate tightness. As we mentioned before, vibration technology helps to increase the pain threshold in our tendons so there is less strain when we work out. The Achilles tendon is one we want to keep strong because it’s such a vital part of how our entire leg operates.
2. Calf / Gastroc MusclesAfter a run or a long ride on the Peloton, our calves tend to be the most sore. Alleviate that tightness by combining the vibration technology with a rolling motion up and through your entire calf muscle.
3. Popliteus Muscle & HamstringsThe popliteus muscle is located just behind our knee and just at the base of our lower hamstring tendons. Lots of blood vessels and sciatic nerves run through this muscle. When you work out this can they can become irritated and compressed, leading to tightness in your calves from lack of blood flow. KoreSurge’s powerful vibration technology helps to open this up.
4. Lower BackYou might not know it, but the nerves in your lower back affect the muscles in your hamstrings and the rest of your legs. When the nerves in your back are relaxed, your legs are relaxed. So, even if your back isn’t sore or bothering you, make sure to spend a few minutes treating your lower back with KoreSurge. You won’t regret it!
