Tip by: Karen Gilbert Tyssen

Foam roller work is a great way to reduce soreness and maintain muscle and joint mobility between training sessions. Foam roller work is performed by using your body weight to apply pressure to an area as the muscle is "rolled" back and forth over the foam roller. Foam rolling can be performed pre or post workout for several minutes per target area.
