How to Foam Roll

Today we have a how-to video on a few of the most commonly foam rolled areas. Mostly because reading how to foam roll might not be as helpful as actually watching and going through the motion together.



A few notes: 1. Move slow. This isn't a race to see how quickly you can foam roll. 2. BREATHE through the movement. 3. Foam rolling doesn't need to be done every day, or even with every lifting session. It's simply a tool in your tool box you can access when you feel like your body could use a little more TLC. 4. Foam rolling is not meant to be painful. If you're in pain, stop. Try using a hand held myo-fascial release method (looks like a rolling pin) so you can control the pressure, or refer back to dynamic stretching.
