You have questions...we have all the answers. Really, we do.
A. Well, you wouldn't use a sledgehammer to nail a small picture to your wall, would you? And, would you use a catana to open your mail? While both would be fun to try, they're not the right tools for the jobs. The UBALL is a tool that provides a deep tissue massage, helps get some hard to reach places, is versatile enough to do multiple things that other tools just can't do
A. Being hurt or injured are two very different things. An injury is something serious that you should seek medical, professional attention. If you See a bone sticking out of your body, some body part fell off, or you feel pop/tear then it's very likely serious and you need the pros. But if your hurt because of a strain, nagging problem, trigger issues you can many times help yourself. And the UBALL is a perfect tool to do so.
A. Yes! You can easily vary the intensity by pushing as hard or soft as your body can take. And as you lean into the UBALL, you can use as much or as little as your body weight that you can handle. Using the UBALL by itself is just fine. If you think you need a little more pressure, then you can use it with a barbell, too.
A. By "it", we assume you mean how does the UBALL feel ;-)?Most devices might feel more like human thumb or knuckles, but nothing compares to getting a good massage from an elbow as it is one of the hardest parts of the body and provides a real intense pressure to loosen up movement restrictions.
A. While, that's not really a question, the UBALL is an excellent tool that does more than a foam roller can do. Going all roly poly on a foam roller doesn't really change much. The UBALL provides very focused attention to specific areas to make change.
A. No. The UBALL can be used by itself by using your hands to press it to various parts of your body. Or, you can lean up against a wall/floor using your beautiful body.
A. The barbell by itself can work well, but is not as targeted as the UBALL as it directs all the pressure to one spot.
A. Be smart about it first of all. You are trying to mobilize yourself, not break your own bones. Often times the weight of the barbell will be sufficient. 5, 10, or 25 pounds should be more than enough for most people. Mobilize responsibly!
A. 25% Twisted steel, 25% moon rock, 25% adamantium and the other half is made with love. In all seriousness (as difficult as that is) it's made of a strong, durable plastic material.
A. Well, if you got smacked around with a piece of bread enough times it would probably hurt, too. Same with the UBALL. Don't over do it. Here's a few useful tips about this question:
A. A gorilla as when used properly, the UBALL feels like a gorilla giving you a massage.
A. Use warm water and soap to clean your UBALL. Do not use bleach or other strong cleaner.
A. Well that's a nice hobby. You can add this to your collection: UBALL Owner's Manual
A. Depends if it is an African or European swallow.
