What is foam rolling anyway?
Foam rolling also known as self-myofascial release is a massaging practice. The myofascial release itself has been used by therapists since forever but to do this yourself you will need some help in the form of a foam roller. The point of the practice is in a long dragging force. The release of the force should help with immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, and improving circulation. It’s not as great as having a professional do it but it’s good. Really good.
Which is why i highly recommend it to everybody who regularly exercises. It helps preventing injuries and promotes recovery time, which also means you can do more workouts in a shorter period of time and thus get better more quickly.
