Target Release: Basecamp
Target Release: Basecamp
So what is this thing? It's unusual and it sure doesn't look like all the other sport recovery massage tools that you may have seen out there. But, that's the point! Here at Target Release we have tried it all and those massage tools just don't work the way we want. We wanted a tool that targeted a specific area of a muscle so that we could methodically massage each aspect of the muscle. We wanted this tool in an easy to use and straightforward form, as well. This is the result of that quest: a simple, functional, affordable, and unique handmade sport recovery massage tool.
The Basecamp is the larger version of the Target Release lineup and is designed to be used against the wall or floor to achieve maximum, yet fine tunable, pressure into the muscle that you are massaging. Using your bodyweight alone you control the amount of pressure used which allows for a personally customizable cross-fiber massage on any muscle. Think of it as a big thumb that doesn't get tired or sore, because everyone uses their thumb, knuckles, fingers, or elbows to massage tight muscles, but not anymore with the Basecamp. The simplicity of the Basecamp allows you to keep the tool anywhere you want and use it with ease for any aches or pains. For all runners, cyclists, climbers, swimmers, triathletes, or any other athlete the Basecamp is for you.

Creativity is the name of the game in using this tool, but to get you started when you purchase a Basecamp a complimentary How-To guide is included and here are some of the helpful massages:
The place where all the magic happens. Your glutes are where you should be focusing on when going up and down. But, they get tight (or should) so massage them with pressure against the wall or floor.
Located on the outside of your leg. Running from your groin to your knee, responsible for moving your hip and leg away from the midline of your body. Your quadriceps can become tight due to gluteus muscle weaknesses or prolonged use. Massage carefully, but with pressure. Also notice that the tool can be used on its horizontal side to massage like a conventional massage stick.
The little guy that plagues us all, as runners we can all point to our hip soreness. All around the upper leg it can hurt. So massage with careful pressure against the wall or floor.
If your glutes aren’t activated then on the downhills your quads will become sore. And similarly if your glutes aren’t activated then your hamstrings will become sore. Either way they both still play a major role in running and as such you must massage with careful pressure!
As runners the calves can become extremely tight. Running from behind your knee to your foot the calve muscles need to be massage cautiously. And never massage directly on your Achilles tendon, an extremely sensitive area.
Located on the inside of your leg. Running from your groin to your knee, responsible for moving your hip and leg toward the midline of your body. The adductor can become tight due to gluteus muscle weaknesses or prolonged use. Massage carefully.
