    acrosse ball vs foam rolling


    i have no lacrosse ball in my country i can buy only the foam roller ,
    so my question is if the foam roller can replace the acrosse ball ?
    i still can use the foam roller for small area like the acrosse ball and for big area so can it replace it ?
    my goal in buying it is for recovery blood flow and better Performance

    They're different. One's for a large surface, the other is for a smaller surface/trigger points.

    It doesn't have to be a lacrosse ball. It can be any hard ball.

    It's not as hard but would be good for a beginner.

    Literally, any similar sized ball will work. I've even laid a kettlebell on it's side and used that to work over a slightly larger surface

    Ball used in the game of pool, baseball, softball...literally any round object that doesn't compress when force/weight is applied.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    Baseball would work good I agree. I use a tennis for my real tender spots and the lacrosse for harder/tougher spots.

    softballs are also pretty nice for certain spots that might be a little hard to really reach and penetrate with a lacross ball because the LXC is so small. For instance, any action on the pec minor while on the floor is probably best done with a softball since it can really reach the target and apply lots of pressure with your bodyweight.
