Self-Myofascial Release: Foam Rolling 101

Imagine a day where you have absolutely no pain, no tension, no stiffness, and no knots. Sounds incredible, right? Getting to that point is possible, you just have to work at it. How you ask? With foam rolling!

If you’ve never spent some TLC with the foam roller, you are in for a treat! Who knew that one small piece of foam could hurt so good?

Foam rollers have been used widely in rehabilitation clinics for corrective exercise and as a tool to increase core stability, balance, proprioception and soft-tissue mobility. Now, they are popping up anywhere from yoga studios, to fitness centers, and athletic training centers as a means to self myofascial release.

Fascia is the connective tissue between the skin and muscles and provides the shape, support, and protection to the body. Often times this connective tissue can become tight due to exercise, inactivity, surgery, repetitive stress and disease, and as a result, it can limit muscle mobility, cause pain and stiffness, and also put your body as risk for injury.

The foam rollers are a means to releasing the trigger points in the body and releasing that tight fascia, increasing blood flow circulation, and also reintroducing mobility to the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the body. They can be used anywhere on the body and with just a few hints to remember, you’ll be on your way to a loose, limber body! When foam rolling, you want to spend at least 1-2 minutes on each side of the body on the necessary areas. When you find a spot that could put you in tears, hold it on that spot as long as you can and focus on your breathing and relaxing through that muscle. Anytime you can spend some time with the foam roller is great; however, similar to stretching, the greatest benefits are experienced when you can repeat it multiple times a day.

Before RevUP I had almost no energy, didn't have much desire to work out and was making  poor eating choices. Several people at the Police Department had told me of the results they had so I thought I would give it a try. My initial goal was to lose enough weight to Zip Line during a family vacation to celebrate my youngest son graduating high school. I achieved that goal plus some. I am now in reload and still working hard and losing the pounds.   I highly recommend this for anyone that is fighting the battle to stay healthy.

RevUp is the single best thing I have ever done for my physical well-being! I believe the combination of the nutrition classes and personal training were the key to my success. The MyFitnessPal app, made it a cinch to track both my food and exercise. Turning that information in each week kept me accountable and allowed my fitness coach to review my diaries and offer suggestions during my weekly coach calls. The before and after assessments showed the positive results of my hard work! I lost weight, gained muscle, and improved my cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, heart rate and flexibility. I would recommend this program to anyone of any age who would like to lose weight, build strength and endurance, and improve their overall health. I was a 59-year-old with poor eating habits and a sedentary life style. In July, I will be a 60-year-old who is healthier and more fit than I have been in years!  Trust me, if I can achieve success through RevUp, anyone can! What a great team!!!”

In August 2011 I weighed 209 pounds, although I knew what I should be doing I didn’t have anyone holding me accountable. In January 2012 I joined RevUP and in 12 weeks I lost 19 pounds. I continue logging my food and working out and ended up losing at total of 50 pounds and weighed 159 pounds 6 months later. I easily kept the weight off for 3 years. In 2015 I got lazy, I stopped logging my food and working out. As a result I gained 30 pounds back. I was so disappointed with myself so I reenrolled in the RevUP and quickly lost 18 pounds. RevUP is a great program to get you back into a routine, provide you with nutrition tips to and gives you a team of people to keep you on track!
