What is Foam Rolling

Self-myofascial release (SMR) "foam rolling" is a fancy term for self-massage to release muscle tightness or trigger points. This method can be performed with a foam roller, tennis ball, soft ball, or your own hands. By rolling out the fibrous tissue that surrounds your muscles you are able to break them down and boost circulation, thereby helping to relieve tension and pain. 

Reasons to Foam Roll

  • Pre-workout warmup
  • Post workout recovery 
  • Fewer knots in your muscles
  • Reduced muscular tightness and pain
  • Injury prevention
  • Increased  flexibility 
  • Improved circulation
  • Increased blood flow
