Are You Rolling Before Your Run?

By: C.Lewis

We all know that Foam Rolling is a great way to help your muscles recover from a workout. Did you know what using your foam roller pre-workout can be beneficial as well? Foam rolling lowers your heart rate and helps break up those adhesions in the muscle. Doing this before your workout will make sure your muscles are ready to take on those efforts. I put together this quick video showing the muscle groups that will benefit from a foam roll before you jump on your bike. Remember to roll slowly! Video sped up x4.
