Active Recovery with Foam Rolling: 4 Techniques

| Author:

Everyone is always looking to maximize their performance from training, however, people routinely neglect recovery. Rest days are a great way to make sure you are getting recovery time, but a daily self-maintenance routine enhances recovery and makes the most out of your training.

Foam rolling, Trigger Point therapy, and self-massage are some of the easiest self-maintenance habits to develop. These tools restore a healthy range of motion and improve muscle elasticity (and hence performance) by loosening tight fascial layers and muscles. Even for those not actively training, daily habits (such as sitting at a desk for extended periods of time) can lead to chronically shortened muscles that contribute to injuries and pain.     

Develop a self-maintenance routine by incorporating the follow recovery techniques. Want to increase your knowledge about Trigger Point therapy and release your body? Check out the 3-day Trigger Point intensive at UEFR.
