Foam rolling

Add a different kind of rock-n-roll to your workout with a foam roller. Cheap, easy to use and according to many very enthusiastic adherents, the best cure for sore muscles since ibuprofen, this humble piece of equipment is making huge waves. Foam rolling involves a technique called self-myofascial release which uses pressure and targeted massage to help prevent scarring of the connective tissue between your muscles (the fascia). Take it easy your first time though; while it looks as easy as falling off a log, falling off this particular log can be very painful until you get used to the amount of pressure you need to use.
