Simple Ways to Feel Better: Foam Rolling
One of the first questions I always get as people walk through the gym is “What are those for?”.
My immediate response, “that is the best 5 bucks you will ever spend”.
Why do I have PVC pipe in the gym? Did I forget to throw it away from when we were building the showers?
What if I told you it was the most affordable masseuse you had ever met?
Actually, for those who have heard of it, we use them for “foam rolling”. Google it, it can become your new best friend. The technical name is “self-myofacial release”, but ultimately it is a simple way to massage out the soreness and knots in your muscles.
We've had a lot of people come through just starting up their workout routines again. One of the most difficult things about pushing yourself is that next day soreness. This can unhinge workout plans in a hurry. It's tough to muster up the motivation to go to the gym when sore muscles make getting out of bed difficult.
Stop on down and ask, I'd be glad to show you how to foam roll, speed up your recovery, and keep you moving along the way to your goals.
