Don't fear the foam roller- just take it an inch at a time.
We all know the benefits, but foam rolling can be a scary thing if you don't know how to use it!
With some quick tips, you'll be able to make the most of this amazing tool.
You're in control of the pressure- body weight and support will increase or decrease the pressure applied on the targeted muscle
Take it an inch at a time- finding the "sweet spot" as you roll a specific muscle means taking it slow and concentrating on rolling back and forth about an inch at a time
It's not JUST for rehab- use a foam roller as pre-hab and as a way to keep your healthy muscles staying stronger for longer
Try these runner-specific targets: calves, ITB, piriformis, hamstrings, glutes, adductors, and quadriceps
