We’ve recently been reminded of the importance in foam rolling DAILY if you’re participating in vigorous exercise at least 4x a week. A lot of us own a foam roller, but for one reason or another, rarely use it. Whether we convince ourselves we’re too busy, or the three minute stretch post-class was enough, we ALL could use a little more foam rollin’ action in our lives. At Tandem, we’ve got regulars dancing (& sweating) it out with us 7 days a week. So, we thought, let’s spread the word on the benefits of foam rolling – you’ll be surprised at what we found!
According to an article in Shape Magazine, using a foam roller to slooooowly roll out your muscles will aid in speeding up the healing and recovery process by breaking up adhesions and scar tissue. Essentially, when you foam roll, you are giving yourself a FREE deep tissue massage! This article on MindBodyGreen sites cellulite reduction, better sleep, and improved metabolism as some other major benefits from foam rolling. We’ve also found (through experience) that foam rolling can provide a great little ab workout – just focus on pulling that belly button in, keeping your core tight and engaged through each exercise! With so much to love, where do you start? Below find some of our favorite foam rolling exercises, all you need is your #tandembod & a foam roller (any type will work!).
Remember in each exercise, SLOWWWWW is key – make sure you are slow and controlled through each movement.
If you’re interested in more foam rolling exercises, have any questions on any of the above info, or want more detailed instructions, just ask a member of our team, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you out!
