Foam Roller Exercises

In fitness, foam rolling has become super trendy in recent years. It is common to see people using a foam roller before or after exercising. However, despite its popularity, many people don’t know what a foam roller is or how it can help improve their fitness. If you have been wondering what this piece of equipment is and how you can use it to get fitter, read on to find out more.

The Foam Roller

The foam roller can be an intimidating piece of equipment at first glance. It’s round and soft, so it must not be that hard, right? Wrong. The foam roller is excellent for releasing muscular tension and breaking up adhesions in your fascia with effective self-myofascial release techniques. Foam rolling is also known as self-myofascial release or SMR. Essentially, using a foam roller helps break up the layers of fascia that build up around our muscles.
