Hopefully you’ve startedÂ incorporatingÂ interval training into your workouts after my post last week. If you did, then your probablyÂ experiencingÂ someÂ extremeÂ soreness in your body, especially in your legs. Your muscles are not used to using so much energy at one time, which leaves them fatigued, andÂ ultimatelyÂ sore.
But alas, thank goodness for the foam roller. The foam roller is exactly what it’s name implies, a large roll of hard foam. It is used to massage soreÂ musclesÂ and tendons using body weight as pressure. Today’s infographic lists some types ofÂ foam rollersÂ to try, as well as someÂ exercisesÂ to massage out sore muscles. MyÂ legs and butt have defiantlyÂ benefitedÂ from this wonderful contraption. It’s almost essential for allÂ athletesÂ to own one. Try it out and relief those sore muscles! [via]276
