Health Benefits of Foam Roller Exercises

 
Self-myofascial release, also known as "foam rolling," has transformed from a once mysterious technique used only by professional athletes, coaches, and therapists to a familiar everyday practice for people at all levels of fitness. Recent information, technology, and affordable products have introduced an increasing array of training and recovery methods to the average person.
 
Foam roller exercises are a form of massage that fitness-minded folks do either before exercise to loosen up sore muscles and tight joints, or after a workout, in an effort to aid muscle recovery.
 
While there are many reasons to incorporate foam rolling into your fitness routine, let's briefly look at 5.
 
1. Improved flexibility and increased range of motion
2. Better circulation
3. Stress reduction
4. Reduce exercise-related soreness
5. Help Prevent injury
   
Foam roller exercises and other self-myofascial release techniques have become increasingly popular, and for good reason. Partly that stems from a better understanding about the healing benefits of soft tissue care, or massage.  Rolling yourself out on a foam roller becomes an affordable alternative to massage therapy. Those dense, cylindrical pieces of foam can deliver many benefits of therapeutic massage without the cost.
