13 Dec The Importance Of Foam Rolling
Foam Rolling may just be the next addition to your routine!
Foam rolling is a great way to improve circulation and recover muscles for those who are active and on-the-go. Foam rolling breaks down knots that limit your range of motion and is also a great way to prep your muscles for stretching. So why not take on the task of foam rolling?
The practice is achieved by applying pressure to specific points on your body. By doing so you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function. To properly foam roll, you’ll need a foam roller and a mat. Both are inexpensive! Foam rolling is the perfect way to work your calves, hamstrings, IT band and glutes! Take a look at our top three foam rollers below.
