usually use manual pressure (preferred) or lacrosse balls & stuff.

recently, I got a "jacknobber".

becoming a big fan of this thing. allows me to get way deeper than my manual pressure. you can "lay on it" in certain positions etc, but can also assist it with your hands, so assisted manual pressure etc.

using it to dig in very deep to my right adductor/hamstrings. found some excruciating spots.

seems like an effective tool so far.

I find a lot of these things just lack the weight needed to get in deep.

I like using the handles of small kettlebells - either on the floor, or lying ontop of you

The sleeve or shaft of an oly barbell works well on certain things as well and the weight of the bar itself sinks in deep, good for areas like the quad/hip tie in area
You can even buy small pieces of oly barbell from Rogue fitness to do things with :)


I have the Battlestar set from  Rogue Fitness, a bit pricey but man it gets in deeper than foam rollers for those types of things and more gentle than a barbell.
Just amazing on calves, but kettlebell handles work well there as well
The handles are good for doing your shins etc

This might might be my next thing - if I can stomach the cost, but there are some cheap Chinese knock offs...

i know someone who really likes the hyperice (or hypervolt) not sure if they are the same. gives it some decent praise.
