The Ultimate Foam Rolling Routine

Ideally, we'd all have the luxury of a getting a deep-tissue massage after every workout in order to help our muscles recover and prevent injuries. The good news if your budget doesn't allow for a personal masseuse? Purchase a foam roller, and you can pretty much do the job yourself.

Complete a foam rolling routine once or twice a day, two or three times a week. Roll back and forth slowly along the cylinder 10 to 12 times. Hit a tender spot? Pause, take a deep breath, and press your weight into it.
