Here is a quick foam rolling tutorial. I filmed this class in my living room because I think that is a great place to do your rolling. I often do it in from of the TV at night and it doesn’t feel like a chore. The benefits of foam rolling are numerous, and I think it makes a big difference in how my own body feels and performs. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
I recommend a firm, smooth roller but not one that is excessively firm. You can damage your tissue and make the work excessively painful with too dense a roller. I also believe that a full size roller is a better investment than a shorter one because you can do more with them; including a full length Pilates class.
