Have you ever struggled with recovery when it comes to working out?
If you're into fitness, you've got to get a foam roller! Many people don't realise the plethora of benefits that come with using a foam roller, helping you to not only get the most out of your workouts, but also recover much faster, allowing you get back into your training sessions!

What even is a foam roller?

Essentially, they're a long, round textured object that helps to target and recover certain muscle groups. Foam rollers work primarily as a tool for self trigger point and myofascial release - essentially just massaging your muscles with a textured service. If you workout, you should definitely be investing in one.

You don't have to use one everyday, but it's recommended that you use one at least a couple of days a week to relieve tight muscles and get the most out of your training sessions.

What are the benefits?

When you’ve worked out how to Foam Roll like a pro, you’ll be reaping the health benefits. You’ll be able to essentially look after yourself when it comes to recovery, improving your athleticism and helping to prevent injuries in the future.

How do you add it to your routine?

Foam Rollers can be used before or after a routine. A gentle roll at the beginning of your workout warms up the tissues in your muscles so you're able to workout your muscles properly. When you’re finished working out, use the Foam Roller to isolate specific areas to “roll” out. Not sold on the benefits of a Foam Roller?
