Foam Rollers are a great form of Self-Myofascial Release.
You may see many in the gym, white, blue, grey, bumpy ones, smooth ones and people rolling around like its fun
(I’m telling you, its not! LOL)
Foam rolling helps relieve muscle soreness and tension, loosens knots, allivates IT Band syndrome and helps with full range of motion and increasing mobility.
Its one of those love/hate things. I’ll be honest… its hard to “not be a bitch” when I’m lying on one… I whine, cry and all but curse my mother.
But afterward… wow! I’m a new woman!
Here are a few techniques I use and teach my clients for IT band, inner thighs, upper back, traps, lats and even feet for plantar fascitis.
The foam roller I use in this video is from The Pro Unit
