Foam Rolling

Feel Great For A Couple Of Bucks!

Most people focus on the same things when it comes to their body. They look at muscle size, muscle strength, body fat percentage, etc.

They keep tabs on all these things meticulously, but forget something very important—the quality of the muscle tissue.

Hard bodyweight training, and any type of muscle building, tears down the muscle tissue so it can be built back up stronger. But this process creates scar tissue.

Foam rolling can break down and get rid of your scar tissue easily—yet most people don’t do it!

Foam Rolling Basics

Foam rolling is such a simple process to do.

All you do is use a hard foam roller and use your bodyweight to apply pressure to the muscles you are targeting.

Then you roll back and forth for 30-60 seconds per muscle group. Essentially, you are giving yourself a massage, but for a lot less money than finding a therapist!

Foam Rolling Muscles Guide

Here is a brief list of some of the best muscle groups to foam roll, along with a brief guide on how to do it. Don’t feel like you have to use this brief list exclusively—if it’s on your body, you can probably foam roll it!

Foam Rolling Hamstrings

Foam rolling hamstrings is one of the easiest muscles to roll, and probably the most beneficial.

All you have to do is sit on your foam roller, targeted on the back of your legs, and roll so that the roller goes from just below your glutes, all the way down to your knee.

Do it for 30-60 seconds at a time.

Foam Rolling Your Back And Neck

I suggest breaking your back and neck into three seperate quadrants—the lower back, the mid-back and lats, and the neck and traps. Work from the bottom up, starting with lower back, going to middle and lats, and finishing with neck and traps.

Focus on each area with at least 30-60 seconds each. If you feel any section is particularly sore, go back to that section and give it more time.

This exercise is a great way to correct postural issues you may have.

Those areas are the two biggest, but you should also use a foam roller on your quads, chest, glutes, and shoulders.
