Compact Power that Goes Anywhere
The Polish Light is the Vibrating Massage Ball that Travels with You
While on the road during March Madness, you options are limited for what you can bring with you for recovery. While your trainers are sure to have the classics, there’s nothing quite like taking the time for a good massage or leg roll after a game or tough practice. The Polish Light - slightly larger than a baseball - is the powerful tool you need to have on the road. Not only does it provide the benefits of the tennis or lacrosse ball you keep in your bag for rolling, but the Polish Light has 4 vibration settings and automatic heat and timer so you can get deep into your trigger points, relieving pain and tension you never even knew existed. Keep the Polish Light in the hotel for recovery or bring it with you on the sidelines for rolling before warmups and when you cramp up -- but no matter how you choose to use it, the Polish Light is the recovery tool that goes anywhere you do.
Roll Out Cramps & Tension in Calves and Legs
Muscle Cramps and Tension are a Thing of the Past
Now that the Polish Light can come with you wherever you go, you have the ultimate device for rolling out calf cramps and tension whenever the necessity presents itself. Great for rolling out small, tight trigger points, the Polish Light can help target muscle areas after a workout to help break up Lactic Acid, and apply heat to muscle in need of blood flow for recovery.
To properly use the Polish Light, sit down with the Polish Light under the muscle area you’re targeting and your other leg bent. Using leverage on your arms, placed behind you, and your foot planted flat on the ground, massage your muscles in a circular motion or long motions. Control the amount of pressure the ball applies to your muscles by raising and lowering yourself onto the ball. Apply one of the four vibration settings for a deeper recovery.
Strengthen Your Shooting with the Polish Light
Shoulder Recovery to Help You at the Free Throw Line
Knots, bursas, and other injuries develop near our muscles from overuse. These common yet painful spots injuries not only cause pain, but actually limit your range of motion. With this limited range of motion, the effectiveness of your shots can be decreased. Additionally, players looking to tone their arms and shoulders to maximize the power of their shots will have a harder time reaching their goals without proper muscular recovery after lifting or training. That’s where the Polish Light comes in, ready to help you reach new heights with your shoulder recovery.
To properly roll your shoulders with the Polish Light, lay on your back, leaning toward one side with the Polish Light beneath the muscle group you are targeting. With one leg bent, push to move your body over the polish light in small circular motions. Automatic heat and vibration for deeper, soothing massages or to help break up knots and tension more effectively.
Treat Post Game Aches
Attack Acute Aching with the Polish Light to Maximize Your Recovery
After leaving it all on the court, you’re guaranteed to be sore and ready to relax. However, many athletes make the mistake of not taking the time to focus on recovery after exerting themselves in a game or tough training session.The Polish Light is great for targeting:
Ideally, a warm down should be part of every workout and game. Since that’s not always the case, take the time to prevent aches and pains after a game on your own with the Polish Light. Rolling out muscles will help prevent lactic acid buildup while the vibrations help reach deeper tissue and muscle groups that need attention. Not only does the head feature help relax your muscles, but aids in recovery by attracting blood flow to the tired muscles.
Positioning your body to provide the proper balance of pressure, heat, and vibration to your muscles will not only feel great, but help you continue to be a better athlete than you were yesterday.
