Foam Rolling (Myofascial release) is a great way to learn how to perform self-myofascial release of trigger points in the muscles. Trigger points are sore spots, scar tissue and adhesions that form within muscles or tendons. Foam rolling is a way of massaging away muscle soreness in trigger points, and preparing your muscles for deeper stretching.
The most overlooked component of injury prevention and delay of fitness progress is soft-tissue quality. Foam Rolling preps your muscles for a workout, treats day-to-day stiffness and loosen things up.
You will learn a variety of different ways to use the foam roller and practice rolling it over your muscles slowly, stopping and holding on sore trigger points until the tension is released.
Date & Time: December 6th, Noon to 1pm
