For some, these two words bring thoughts.
Of dread. 🙂
Others relish its ability to pinpoint superficial fascial and muscular tightness.
Still others haven’t the foggiest notion on what I’m talking about.
I’m in the middle. I dread it’s usefulness, but I end up gravitating towards it anyway.
I want to make sure my Just Muscles readers know how to use your roller all over your body, because I’m guessing it takes the back burner or you’ve never met it.
In my world everyone knows how to use a roller to massage and beat muscles into submission, but then I meet someone who has never used one and doesn’t know how.
So let’s reset.
Let’s get the basics reestablished, or introduced and established as the case may be.
Get (re)acquainted with your best friend and the $20 fitness tool no home should be without: Mr. Foam Roller!
I love them so much that I really don’t like to go a week without one. I send one ahead to our Airbnb, or to our hostess as a hostess gift if we are staying with friends. I took an old white one with me to Mexico and it was dubbed “oversize luggage” with the skis and golf clubs. Have you walked down the streets of Puerto Vallarta with a roller over your shoulder and very little Spanish?
Talk about funny looks, and only a smile as an explanation. 🙂
Watch the video below to quickly check in with all of your favorite spots, and see if you discover an “ah-ha” moment to help you dig into an area previously neglected.
Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on foam rollers- love? dislike greatly? Dread but useful?
Look forward to hearing from you!
dreadfully love <3
I hear you! 🙂
Oh Laura- you started my love affair with the foam roller. I have one at my parents’, my best friends’, and a travel size that goes everywhere with me (it’s been in 8 countries- and got the weirdest look in South Carolina of all places). Thank you for this post! It’s always good to refresh exercises you’ve long forgotten or neglected.
Lauren how lovely that you consider it a love affair! Thank you for writing 🙂 I love coming back to the basics, too ♥️
