TRUEBALLs Instructions

Here we show you in a few steps how you can use the TRUEBALLS most effectively for yourself.

What you should pay special attention to when rolling

Do not roll over bones

To avoid irritating the periosteum, avoid rolling directly over your bones with a lot of pressure.

Stop at pain points for a few seconds

If you roll over a painful area, wait until the pain has subsided by at least two thirds, then continue rolling.

Roll slowly for recovery, roll faster for warm-up

Our rule of thumb for the rolling speed. Depending on your application goal, you should always adjust it slightly.
