Full Body Foam Roll Routine 8.14.17

This week we are working on rolling, stretching, and recovering our muscles. Like anything else, you can’t continue working at high intensities and continue seeing progress without allowing time to fully recuperate.

The best way to help your muscles recover is to get blood flowing to them without overexerting them. Foam rolling is a great way to do that. Foam rolling has the added benefit of working out knots and tight spots which, if left untreated, can become worse and cause muscular imbalances as other muscles work to compensate for the tightened muscles.

I hope you enjoy this! :o) I’ll be back with another intense workout next week! If you need some exercise routines to get you through until then, check out some of my other posts or head over to YouTube and pick something from the workout playlists!
