Foam Rolling for Dummies

Self-myofacial Release (SMR), self massaging for those wondering. So why use a foam roller vs going and getting a real massage by a licensed massage therapist? Because it’s cheaper, SMR is also called the poor man’s massage. But don’t confuse that with useless massage. Foam rolling is a great way to return the muscle back it’s healthy state so that it can fire more efficiently. Check out the “Essential Guide To Foam Rolling”.

Here are some benefits to foam rolling:

  • Address Muscle Imbalances
  • Increase Joint Range of Motion
  • Decrease Muscle Soreness While Increasing Joint ROM
  • Increased Nueromusclar Efficiency
  • Maintain Normal Muscle Length
