Foaming and Rolling

Oh, foam rolling. I have been converted to a foam roller after experiencing so many post-run aches and pains. 

My need for foam rolling first started when I incorporated treadmill workouts before my strength sessions. My personal favorite being this one from POPSUGAR

Even though I stretched before each run, I still got shin splints and knee pains. That’s when I asked an Equinox trainer to show me how to foam roll. 

Foam rolling is beneficial in so many ways, including as a pre-workout stretch for legs or a massage for your lower and upper back. I personally foam roll my quads, calves, and lower back, focusing on each part for about three to five minutes.

It is difficult to explain how to foam roll when writing about it! This video and article from Shape Magazine shows how to foam roll and the many ways to incorporate it into your workout routine. 

I love foam rolling so much that I purchased my own to use at home! 

I highly recommend this LuxFit foam roller. It is inexpensive, does not take up too much space, and most importantly, gets the job done.

Anyone else foam roll? If so, how and when do you use it?!
