Self-myofascial release, commonly known as “Foam Rolling”, is used to release muscle tightness or trigger points. By applying pressure to specific points on your body you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function. Normal function means your muscles are elastic, healthy, and ready to perform at a moment’s notice. Including in this file are foam roll exercises for the following: thoracic spine, lumbar spine, gluteal, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, IT band, and pectorals & shoulders.
