Foam Rolling

hamstring foam roll

5 Benefits of foam rolling and why we should incorporate it into our daily routine:

1- Relieves muscle tension

  • You can control the amount of pressure applied over the muscle.

2- Increases range of motion, mobility, and flexibility

  • Lengthening your muscles increases your range of motion, therefore optimizing movement and function, and preventing injuries especially during exercise. 

3- Increases blood flow

  • In turn, this helps to remove lactic acid and aids in muscle recovery especially post-workout.

4- Breaks up scar tissue and adhesions

5- Helps to assist in preventing the occurrence of a hunched back posture
