Yoga & Pilates Stretching Exercise Foam Rollers are very popular with personal trainers and elite athletes who are looking for more efficient ways to improve their physical fitness.
By simply lying on the foam roller in various positions and using gravity with your body weight to apply pressure with a slow rolling motion you can loosen up, strengthen and improve circulation to sore and tight areas in your back, legs, buttocks or arms.
At first using the foam roller may actually be quite painful. The good news is that with regular use your muscles will loosen up and become stronger, tougher, more pliable and controlled and desensitised to the deep pressure that is created by the foam roller making the whole experience much more pleasurable than the first time you used the foam roller which is an experience you will never forget!
There are indeed many health and fitness benefits using the foam roller but to get the most out of your foam roller you do need to consult with a good personal coach to make sure you are using your foam roller most effectively.
There are also numerous helpful instructional foam roller videos you can find by simply searching the Internet or YouTube.
