Foam Roll

FOAM ROLLING SESSION 1

 

Foam rolling is an important part of training and overall wellness. The purpose of foam rolling is to speed up recovery time. This is done by breaking up adhesions and scar tissue in your body. Releasing or breaking these adhesions allows increased blood flow to those areas of the body allowing you to move more freely and with less discomfort.
