I’d like to introduce you to a good friend of mine (if you don’t have one of these already)
The Foam Roller! I got this fitness gear foam roller at Dick’s Sporting Goods for $29.99.
My foam roller is like a $29.99 deep tissue massage that keeps on giving. Although, it’s kind of a love/hate relationship. Likely because it was the result of an injury and trip to a physical therapist.
Foam rollers can:
- Can help prevent injury. This is great for accident-prone me! It can help to prevent tight muscles which can leave you prone to injury.
- Can help you de-stress. Who doesn’t like a massage? Help release tension build-up in connective tissues.
- Keeps you flexible. Flexibility is important in any fitness routine and the foam roller can help with flexibility!
Since I am a terrible self-photographer, check out these images of foam roller stretches!
