We’re excited about two new massage products from Tiger Tail USA – the Tiger Ball Massage-on-a-Rope and the Knotty Tiger Knot Buster. They’re portable, economical, easy to use, and great for trigger point therapy!
Tiger Ball Massage-on-a-Rope
The Tiger Ball Massage-on-a-Rope is perfect for knots, trigger points and sore muscles in the back, shoulders, piriformis, legs, and other areas where deep pressure is desired. Lean up against a wall or lie down on the ground and press away!
If you've ever used a tennis ball for self-massage, you're going to LOVE the Tiger Ball. The rope keeps the ball from running away – just put it over your shoulder and lean back. The density of the ball is great for trigger point release. It won't compress down with your body weight, but it's got just enough give so that it's comfortable and muscle friendly to use.
The Tiger Ball Massage-On-A-Rope has 2.6 inches of massage surface and a 30 inch rope made from slick, nylon webbing. Features include:
Hard, firm and smooth surface gives deep, penetrating trigger point and muscle tension relief.
Non-slip grip feature ensures secure, controlled muscle manipulation.
Portable, easy-pack design. Weighs just 8 ounces.
Economically priced at just $21.95.
Knotty Tiger Knot Buster
The Knotty Tiger Knot Buster is a simple, self-massage tool that turns sore muscles into happy muscles by helping relieve muscle knots, aches, cramping, spasms and stiffness. The Knot Buster is great for the neck, shoulders, arms, back and other parts that need spot-specific help.
Just like the Tiger Tail Massager, the Knotty Tiger helps increase performance, prevent injury and speed recovery. The Knotty Tiger helps increase circulation, reduce tension, work out trigger points, warm-up muscles pre-workout, and helps with faster recovery times when used post-workout.
Knotty Tiger Knot Busters are 3 inches in diameter and fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. Features include:
Hard, firm and smooth surface gives deep, penetrating trigger point and muscle tension relief while sliding smoothly over clothing. Can also be used with massage oils.
Non-slip grip feature ensures secure, controlled muscle manipulation.
Three different curves to apply differing amounts of pressure.
Portable, easy to pack size – they can go anywhere.
Economically priced at only $16.95.

Created for deep tissue rolling, the RumbleRoller has specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible. As you roll, the bumps continuously kneed the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue in multiple directions. The Rumble Roller targets trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain.
RumbleRoller vs. Traditional Foam Rollers
People commonly use foam rollers to relieve muscular pain and tightness but conventional foam rollers have smooth surfaces that compress soft tissue. Rolling on top of them improves blood flow and tissue flexibility, but the effectiveness can be limited unless you spend a lot of time rolling. The RumbleRoller was created for more effective therapy.
Mimics a Massage Therapist
The firm but flexible bumps of the RumbleRoller are like the thumbs of a massage therapist. The RumbleRoller's bumps are firmer than muscle tissue but much softer than bone – they deflect out of the way if they contact your spine or other bony protrusions.
Through simple techniques, you can control the amount of pressure applied to your body. The bumps are less than 2 inches apart, so several of them simultaneously contact your body during most exercises. With a slight shift of your body, you can reduce your area of contact with the RumbleRoller, which increases pressure and provides deeper, more penetrating relief.
The RumbleRoller's massaging action can be increased by changing your movement from a back-and-forth rolling motion to a side-to-side rocking motion. That's because the bumps have an asymmetrical shape that allows them to flex more easily in one direction. During rolling movements, the bumps flex relatively easily, and provide more even massage pressure. If you rock from side-to-side toward the ends, the bumps are forced to flex in a direction in which they're designed to be somewhat stiffer, creating a deeper "digging" pressure. This is especially effective for dense tissue like that of the calves.
Durable and Easy to Clean
The RumbleRoller is stronger and more tear resistant than conventional foam rollers and it permanently retains its shape. The smooth, nonporous surface is latex free, repels dirt and is water-proof. The Rumble Roller also has a molded-in antimicrobial additive that helps prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. Cleaning is as simple as wiping it down with soap and water or any common household cleaner.
Choose from Two Densities in Two Sizes
If you're new to foam rolling or have gotten good results from conventional foam rollers, you'll probably want the original density (blue). Although softer than the extra-firm version, it’s still more aggressive than other foam rollers on the market. The extra-firm version (black) is intended for experienced users with especially dense muscle tissue that doesn't respond to normal massage pressure.
If you plan to use your RumbleRoller in a single location, the full-size model (31” long and 6” in diameter) is great because the extra length makes it more efficient for performing many exercises. It's long enough to roll the widest part of your back in one pass and you can roll both legs at the same time. The major advantage of the Compact RumbleRoller (12” long and 5” in diameter) is its portability. It fits easily in your gym bag, backpack, or carry-on luggage. Also, the smaller 5” diameter allows it to conform better to the curvature of some body parts, such as the neck.

A perfectly balanced dumbbell system, Balanced Halo Bells are an impressive paradigm shift from classic dumbbells. Balanced Halo Bells are circular, perfectly balanced dumbbells with a handle in the middle. And, they convert quickly and easily to a barbell!
Natural range of motion (ROM) while exercising is extremely important to the maintenance of healthy joints and connective tissue. Traditional dumbbells allow you to "cheat" by turning the wrist and altering the weight distribution. This causes an easier lift and neglects development of important stabilizer muscles. The radial design of the Balanced Halo Bell evenly distributes the weight, providing consistent resistance through all natural joint rotations, reduced torque to the wrist, and improved muscle development and toning.
Halo Bells are more than just dumbbells. They’re a 3-in-1 training system.
Use them as individual bells for any dumbbell exercise.
The balanced design allows you to use them for multiple kettlebell type exercises.
End caps on the Halo Bells pop open – connect them to the included bar and, in seconds, you have a barbell.
Manufactured from quality materials, Balanced Halo Bells are incredibly difficult to damage. The handle is chrome plated steel, ergonomically designed for a wide range of users. The handle is permanently locked in place within the impact resistant inner housing so that it cannot loosen. The outer housing is made from an abuse resistant Polyurethane polymer which is centrally encapsulated with a wear-resistant, color-coded PVC polymer.
The entire Halo Bell set can be stored as a complete compact system – they’re great for smaller training areas and corner placement.
Purchase Balanced Halo Bells at PerformBetter.com. They’re available in three packages (each includes a barbell and stand):
Set of 5 to 50 lbs.
Set of 5 to 75 lbs.
Set of 5 to 100 lbs.

Pull-ups just got a lot more fun and effective! The innovative Free Pull-Up Kit allows you to adjust the width of your pull-ups while you’re doing them! One handle slides as the other stays stationary, allowing you to perform narrow to wide pull-ups. As the handles slides during a pull-up, you dynamically change the targeted muscles throughout the movement.
Simple and Durable
The Free Pull-Up Kit attaches to any 1" to 1-1/2" diameter bar, making it great for gyms with multiple bar systems. The ball bearings ensure a free and smooth roll and the comfortable, foam-covered handles rotate. The device safely supports up to 300 pounds. Additionally, the kit comes with an exercise band for assisted pull-up exercises.

The new Cold Roller from Trigger Point Performance Therapy is billed as “the most advanced and effective recovery product on the market.” For quickly and effectively recovering muscles, we find it hard to disagree. The cold treatment helps shut down the inflammatory response, calms tired muscles and jump-starts the healing process.
Unlike an ice bath, the cold roller only targets the sore muscles requiring attention. If you’ve used rollers before for myofascial release, the Cold Roller reduces the rolling time, saving you time and maximizing recovery. It’s perfect for releasing lactic acid and other toxins from your muscles and helping restore tendons and fascia by icing them for recovery.
The durable Cold Roller has a stainless steel tube with a core filled with a freezable gel. The polyurethane wheels roll easily and will not scratch surfaces. And, the oval shape of the stainless steel tube allows you to focus more compression on a muscle compared to a flat foam roller.
Easy to Use
Simply pop the Cold Roller in the freezer for 2 or more hours, wipe it down with a cloth to remove frost, and begin rolling! The Cold Roller maintains its cold effectiveness for up to 3 hours because of the patent pending gel. When you’re done rolling, pop it back in the freezer so it’s ready for your next post-workout recovery. The Cold Roller is also travel-friendly with dimensions of 11 1/2” long by 4” wide.
