Do your muscles often feel tense? Have you noticed a dull, prolonged ache in your shoulders or other joints? If so, you’ll know how irritating it is, but the good news is that it can easily be eradicated through foam rolling exercises.
Foam rolling can be performed on potentially stiff areas such as your quads, glutes, calves or thoracic spine. Foam roller exercises will clear muscle aches, provide an overall energy boost, reduce the likelihood of injury during workouts, correct muscle imbalances and boost your immune system. It’s also a quick and easy way to exercise; all you need is a foam roller and a bit of floor space to carry out the exercises.
