Foam rolling is a type of self-myofascial release in which pressure is applied to certain body parts to relieve pain. A recent study published in the Journal of Sports Rehabilitation found that foam rolling significantly increases range of motion and that the combination of static stretching and foam rolling led to the greatest flexibility improvements. “Foam rolling limits soreness and tightness by increasing blood flow and flexibility,” says Francisco Cabrerra, C.P.T., at Dumbbell’s Gym in North Bergen, NJ, where he teaches a class demonstrating how to roll the entire body out with 10 moves. “When the muscles are tight, injuries such as tears are more likely to occur.” Do these 10 foam rolling moves to get every major muscle group firing properly.
