Foam Roller for Tight Muscles

A foam roller will help stretch out your tight muscles. Foam rolling is a method of self-massage that releases trigger points in your muscles. Applying pressure to specific points on your body will help your muscles recover from pain, soreness, and stiffness. You want your muscles to be flexible and ready to twist and bend with ease, and self-massage with a foam roller can help you achieve this goal.*

While foam rolling, use your body weight to apply moderate pressure to tight muscle groups. When you find these areas of tightness, pause for 5-20 seconds, breathe deeply, and relax into the massage as much as possible. Be patient with your progress. Pain and discomfort should gradually lessen as you loosen your muscle groups.

Express your love today!
