Soft Density Foam Rollers

If you have never used a foam roller before, or are sensitive to deep tissue massage, you may want to start off with a soft density foam roller.

Beginners may want to start out with a soft/low or medium density roller for a less intense experience. Most foam rollers are color-coded depending on the density. White foam rollers are typically the softest.

With a soft foam roller, you can perform a more gentle massage on yourself in tight areas. A soft foam roller is still not supposed to flatten or be “squishy”. You will find that a good soft foam roller should be firm and support your weight without compressing. It should feel as if it has a soft layer of cushioning to avoid overly painful rolling.
