If foam rolling isn't part of your workout routine, it should be. Using a foam roller prior to your workout helps warm-up your muscles, enhancing the flow of blood and oxygen and helping you achieve peak performance and lowering your risk of injury. Foam-rolling post-workout helps soothe tired muscles, reduce tightness and accelerate muscle recovery.
Foam rollers can have become an important part of core conditioning, strength training, yoga, pilates and a variety of other workout regimens. Even the world-renowned P90X2 featuring Trainer Tony Horton recommends the use of a foam roller to strengthen muscles, prevent injury and maximize performance.
Foam rollers are used as part Self-Myofascial Release and can help eliminate trigger points and knots in your muscles. Trigger points occur when you use or stress a muscle. Some parts of the muscle will remain contracted even though the rest of the muscle is relaxed, causing pain and muscle exhaustion. The goal of self-myofascial release is to eliminate pain, increase range of motion and balance the body.
