When should I foam roll?

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]A daily foam rolling routine is a wonderful habit for maintenance, de-stressing and injury prevention. Taking 10 minutes each day to reset the muscles and address any stiff areas will keep your body feeling great

We recommend rolling out before/after workouts. Rolling out before exercising warms up the muscles and helps you move better during the workout. Foam rolling after a workout helps the cool down process by stretching the muscles and preparing the muscles for recovery.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

How do I foam roll?

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]Slowly roll over your muscles, leveraging your body weight to work into the tight muscles as you move back and forth. The pressure will allow tense muscles to relax and will break up any knots or adhesions you might have. Focus on each muscle group for about 2 minutes, or 10 rolls in each direction.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]
