The Warbler by 42 Birds
The Warbler by 42 Birds is a massage roller made out of cork, a sustainable material. Think of it like a firmer, more aesthetically pleasing version of the foam roller. Oh, and it is environmentally friendly as it is made from Cork. This is probably one of the most eco-friendly materials out there, but we’ll get to that later.
Sore muscles are a real issue, particularly when they are as a result of stress. Whether you are a couch potato or someone who lives an active lifestyle, it is hard to avoid occasional muscle imbalances. This fitness trend is known as self-myofascial release (SMR) and The Warbler is a great tool for SMR.
Health Benefits of The Warbler
The major health benefits of this fitness tool are SMR related benefits. Although, the makers say that it would make you feel younger, stronger and improve your overall health. We won’t say they are wrong per se, because if you are able to focus on SMR, you will feel better.
So, the health benefits of the Warbler include:
- Easing sore muscles
- Building core stability and improve balance
- Improving mobility and flexibility
- Relieving stress
- Calming and stretch muscles perfectly
- Releasing trigger points
- Correcting muscle imbalances
- Extra firm density to maximize results
What Makes The Warbler Special?
From what we can see, there are three main elements that make this roller special.
- It is aesthetically pleasing
- It does what it says
- It is made from Cork
The first element is the beauty of the Warbler. The design truly is lovely especially when you are used to hiding away your ugly-looking foam roller. This is one roller you will be proud to place on display. There’ss a simplicity and elegance in the design that makes you want to have a Warbler. And it doesn’t matter whether you plan to use it or not. You just want to have one.
The second element is the fact that it actually does what it says. This is not just another hyped-over product. The Warbler roller has special ridges at the side that connect with the contours of the body. The result is that it hits the right spots, loosening knots and relaxing the muscles. This has been tested and those who use it, swear by it.
The third element is that it is made from cork, a naturally occurring sustainable material.
What We Love About Cork
Cork almost looks like wood, but other than the fact that it grows on trees, it’s nothing like wood. The most interesting fact is that no tree ever has to get cut in order to produce cork. It is made from the bark of the cork oak tree and harvesting does not destroy the plant.
Also, cork has antimicrobial properties, which means that it does not retain bacteria from sweat during workouts. Again, harvested cork absorbs CO2 a greenhouse gas that causes climate change. This makes it a material that is extremely friendly to the environment. What’s more, it is biodegradable.
It is pertinent to note that every part of the cork bark is used resulting in zero waste. The Warbler is a product that is beautiful, clean and eco-friendly.
