Just a few minutes of rolling can help make your muscles more receptive to stretching and relieve muscle soreness.
Working out regularly will help you hold on to your flexibility, mobility, and independence. And using a simple tool may improve this grip on fitness by priming the muscles and making your workouts more effective — a foam roller.
- Reduce muscle stiffness and delayed onset muscle soreness
- Increase range of motion and flexibility
- Raise pain pressure threshold (the measurement of the minimum force applied that induces pain)
- Promote faster injury recovery and rehabilitation
We can help you determine which muscles will benefit from foam rolling, and then guide you through the process.
You'll typically sit or lie on a mat on the floor, place a particular body part on top of the roller, then move it back and forth until you find a tender spot in your muscle.
At XplosiveFit we offer regular foam rolling sessions and if you need additional tips and techniques…just ask us!
