Foam roller exercises aid in reducing muscle tension, improving joint mobility, improving localised blood circulation, reducing the risk of injury and improving posture.
I describe what type of foam roller to look for and demonstrate how it can be used for self-massage. It is easily transportable and highly effective provided you know what exercises to use it for.
What is the best roller for me?
There are various types from soft to firm and rigid. You don’t need something expensive, but one that allows you to relax whilst applying muscle pressure. I recommend starting with a cheap, softer roller.
