10 Effective Foam Roller Exercises to Improve your Flexibility

Feeling sore after yesterday’s workout? Do some foam rolling to speed up your recovery. The foam roller gives the benefits of a sports massage. It uses deep compression to break up tight muscles and works out the kinks and knots in them. Foam rolling improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation. It also reduces development of scar tissue and joint stress. 

You can do it anytime you feel like before a workout, after a workout, while watching TV or just before going to sleep. Some people think that foam rolling is a post-workout exercise. But that is a wrong assumption. You should be doing some rolling before you start your workout too. Foam rolling loosens up your muscles and improves flexibility, which allows you to do your other exercises more effectively.
