Everyone can benefit from foam rolling.
Although popular with our fitness professionals, this tool might be one of the most underutilized pieces on our fitness floor.
Per Mitchell Keyes, master trainer with a credential in muscle activation therapy, “Foam rolling supports a technique, called self-myofascial release (SMR), that helps apply pressure to the tissues around your muscles. This tissue can get tight (often called a trigger point or bundle of tissue) – whether from exercise, sitting all day or even wearing heels, etc. – so foam rolling helps to loosen it by breaking up that ‘bundle’.”
