Foam roller a wonderful exercise tool

Reasons for using a foam roller

  Beyond using a foam roller as a therapeutic tool, you can also use it for a variety of exercises.  I have been using  foam roller during teaching and my students/clients love it. It’s especially useful for a number of core-strengthening and stabilizing postures and movements. Foam rollers are inexpensive, lightweight and versatile, being ideal for a home workout or studio. The foam rollers are put to all kinds of uses, such as stretching, self-massage, body support, and stability exercises. Foam roller exercises provide the following benefits:

  • Discover your personal body-mind-soul connection areas in your body that needs the work. The link between the body and emotions is a significant factor for health in your life.
  • Remove knots in muscles 
  • Self-myofascial-release
  • Increase blood flow to the area in need of healing.
  • Increased awareness of each side of your body, which side is weaker and which side is tighter, so that you can work on re-balancing your body.
  • Builds core strength without doing endless and unnecessary crunches.
  • Aligns your spine and releases tension in. your back muscles.
  • Overall feeling of well-being is immediate after only one session on a foam roller.

    Great post. I’m also using the MELT roller on my lower and upper back. It works amazingly. 🙂

      I’m glad you liked it. 🙂 I’ve been trying to use cacao in various breakfast drinks as well.
