Why Do Foam Roller Exercises?

Why Do Foam Roller Exercises?

I would recommend Foam Rollers Before and after a workout. To help release muscle tension. Best Foam Roll should be done after a light jog. Foam Rolling is especially useful for athletes who can’t afford the costs of regular massage. It decreases muscle density to help the athlete feel more relaxed so they can warm up better.

As the Great American Coach Bud Winter said the more relaxed and warm you are during the warmup the better you will perform. And this means better performance also in competition.


How long an athlete roll is also determined on a case-by-case basis. I usually allow five to 10 minutes for soft tissue activation work at the beginning of the session prior to warm up. If my athletes roll after their workout, it is done for the same length of time.


A foam roller is simply a cylindrical piece of extruded hard-celled foam. Think swimming pool noodles, but a little denser and larger in diameter. They usually come in one-foot or three-foot lengths. I find the three-foot model works better, but it obviously takes up more space.
