Why we love it
Foam rolling, like stretching, is one of those things we rarely do until we're actually injured from not doing it. Silly, right?
While you can use foam rolling as a recovery method, foam rolling really shines as a pre-workout ritual. You can prime the muscles for the work they're about to do and put extra pressure on any knots or pain points. Foam rollers are cheap, and you don't want to wait for them to arrive when you're in dire straits, so pick one up now! Roll your muscles before heading up to the gym, or roll your muscles while watching TV in the evening. Your body will thank you.
