6 Ways to Use a Foam Roller

September 23rd, 2016

I tend to have a love hate relationship with foam rolling. You may hate it when going through the movements but I promise your body will thank you. You can use foam rolling before or after any workout. I tend to use it as a restorative tool to help increase mobility, blood-oxygen levels, and relieve soreness and tightness when I have had a long week of teaching, working out and running around with my son. I recommend aiming to use a foam roller three times a week for five – ten minutes at a time.

  1. I’ve never used a foam roller but I think it’s time to get one. I’m trying to focus more on stretching, so this looks like a great tool!

    Can you tell me who makes that roller, or where it can be purchased? Also, it looks like cork, rather than foam, and it looks very firm. I’d like more details about that particular item in the photos. Thanks!

    I’ve never really considered a foam roller to be honest, but this has definitely made me rethink that!

    Would a foam roller be good for my back aches? If I were to use it on my lower back area?
