How to Foam Roll Every Muscle in Your Leg

Foam rolling is a great way to increase your range of motion and to decrease muscle soreness!

 
It’s a great self-massage technique and it only takes a few moments a day to do. Contrary to popular belief you don’t need to try and roll yourself like pizza dough for hours on end.

 

Watch Dr. Rob show you exactly how to hit every muscle in your lower body.

 

 

Consistency and frequency are the best ways to see the results of foam rolling.  Short frequent sessions are better than long epic sessions.  Just like brushing your teeth.  Rolling one or two muscles for 20-30 seconds every day is the key!

 

Here are some tips to get started:

 

1. Be gentle. Ease into it. You don’t need spikes on your roller, it shouldn’t be painful, just uncomfortable.
2.  Pick 1 or 2 tight spots to work on. Don’t try to fix your whole body at once.
3.  Keep the foam roller in plain sight where you can see it. (We recommend to keep it on the couch so you have to move it to sit down. Think of it as a decorative pillow).

 

You know how they say “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” – well the foam roller would be the apple for your muscles and joints.  It is an amazing way to prevent the cumulative build up of sitting and working all day.
