Are your muscles sore after your workout? Don’t have time to get that massage you want? Use Self-Myofascial Techniques to help yourself out.
Self-Myofascial Techniques (Foam Rolling) can help relax your muscles and increase blood flow to the rolled area. This helps with recovery after a workout and can also assist with stretching prior to your workout.
Don’t have a foam roller at the house?? No problem. You can also use a tennis ball, baseball, or other small ball to help get the job done. Just remember that with the smaller surface area of the ball, you may need to adjust your body position and weight on the ball to limit discomfort. Consider using a wall to lean against instead of rolling on the floor.
Self-Myofascial Techniques work great for the muscle groups in the legs including the hamstrings, quadriceps, calves, and adductors. While you’re there, roll the Glutes as well to help with tightness in those areas as well.
Key points to consider. Self-Myofascial Techniques are not recommended over the face, arteries, veins, nerves, joints or bones. Also, if you have medial issues such as pregnancy, bleeding disorders, Cancer or Osteoporosis, Self-Myofascial Techniques may not be recommended. Consult your Dr with any questions prior to beginning a workout routine or using Self-Myofascial Techniques.
