Ever have one of those tight, achey spots? The kind that shows up a day or two after a half marathon or an intense workout? That's Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
Disclaimer: I received a CTM Band to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming

I know my muscles will recover, but I like to help the process along. After all, I still have to climb stairs and get up and down from my desk all day.
I already use foam rollers and compression bands. But I'm super excited to try the CTM Band because it has built-in trigger points.
I care about the trigger points because I always seem to have one spot I can't reach with the foam roller. Do you know what I mean? You try and try, but if you aren't a pretzel, you can't make contact. Enter...the CTM Band!
Here's Some History on the CTM Band
The CTM Band was designed by Dr. Kyle Bowling. He's an avid runner and sports chiropractor. He created the CTM Band to offer a new approach to myofascial release. He did extensive research on self myofascial release and created the CTM Band to combine compression, tension, and movement in one dynamic tool.
The CTM Band means you don't have to use a combo of foam rollers, trigger point balls and floss bands to relieve soreness. You can speed up your muscle recovery with one tool that's easy to carry with you — to races, the gym, or on a trip.
You'll be ready to release a knot, relieve a muscle spasm, or activate your muscles before a race. I wish I had it the time I got a charley horse at mile 10 of a race.
