Foam Rolling 101

by Anna D

This infographic gives you a good understanding of some basic foam rolling tips. (Click on the picture to look at it more closely then click again to enlarge it.)

Instead of just rolling the foam roller over your muscle, you want to “search and destroy” the tender spots in your muscles and hold (not roll) that pressure for a minimum of 30 seconds. It may take longer, depending on your ability to consciously relax your muscle. If it doesn’t seem like you’re making progress on a tight spot, contract the muscle and then relax it. You should definitely feel something then! 🙂

As always, have fun and stay safe.
