Lovin' Life 18/7/2019: My Foam Roller.

This week, I'm loving my foam roller.

This humble piece of fitness equipment retails for under $15, doesn't take up much space and is easy to use.  Most importantly, it's done my problem lower body muscle groups the world of good. 

I'm not great at getting remedial massages and I never seem to have the time to do my exercises from my physio. However, I've persisted with my foam roller exercises. Heading into TMI territory but I get instant relief from the pressure of the roller over areas of tightness and pain.

There's an exercise for practically every one of my problem areas.

There are my favourites:

Do you use a foam roller?  Has it changed your life and put the spring back in your step?

  1. Got to say I've never tried one of these and when I first looked I thought it was a hair roller lol. It looks really versatile though and glad it helps you exercise!
