How to Use a Foam Roller for Tight Muscles

Do you have tight or sore muscles? Are you interested in increasing your flexibility or learning how to provide yourself with a DIY ‘self massage’?  Then a foam roller may be just what you need!

A foam roller is an inexpensive and super versatile piece of equipment that you can keep right at home.  Foam rolling is like a deep tissue massage for both pre and post workout muscle recovery.  Stretching is great, but a foam roller takes it to another level since it encourages compression in muscle groups, and works out any kinks before they become super painful or annoying.

Whether you’re already an enthusiastic fan or just starting out, here are some helpful tips from The Greatist.
