Roll Away Injuries: The Benefits Of Using A Foam Roller

image

Foam rolling smooths and lengthens your muscles, and breaks up adhesions and scar tissue. Oh how I love foam roller!

It also helps your muscles relax and better blood circulation, which in turn speeds workout recovery and boosts performance. But don’t take my word for it. Grab a foam roller from http://www.hourglassworkout.com because it has three different densities, offering a realistic massage. Oh how I love massage!

If you hit a sore spot, hold it there for 15 to 30 seconds—it’s the  tight area that needs special attention. Yes, foam rolling can be painful, but you need only 5 to 10 minutes to reap the benefit. Just as important as how you roll is when you roll: After a workout is best, followed by a stretch of the muscle. Take a look at our instagram page for the foam roller video here: http://www.instagram.com/janiceadore

This helps your muscles return to the proper length and recover even faster because it can prevent the buildup of scar tissue.
