fitnesspainfree2 Easy Ways to Get the Most out of Your Foam Rolling
1) Pre-stretch the target muscle. In this example I'm stretching my hamstrings and quad musculature prior to rolling. This adds some extra lengthening.
2. Fire the opposing muscle group. Reciprocal inhibition is the contraction of a muscle group forcing the relaxation of the opposing muscle group. For the hamstring roll I flex the quadriceps and for the quad and hip flexor roll I flex my hamstrings and glutes. This way we get more relaxation and range from rolling. @championptp @olychad @powermonkeyfitness #reebok #teamreebok #physicaltherapy #mobility #foamroller #crossfit
