Foam Rollers are Fun!

I’d like to introduce you to a good friend of mine (if you don’t have one of these already)

Fitness Gear 24 in Foam Roller - Dick's Sporting Goods

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Can help you de-stress. Who doesn’t like a massage? Help release tension build-up in connective tissues.
  3. 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!
