I Call It The Poor Man's Massage
Have you heard someone talk about the foam roll? It is an amazing, inexpensive, simple, and portable tool used to relax muscles and relieve tension. I call it the poor man’s massage. It will never be as good as a real massage but it comes close to that and it does wonders for your long term posture and pain relief!
Below you will find a link to videos on how to use the foam roll. It is important to keep in mind that you should always keep your abs tight the whole time. It will be a little rough in the beginning. If you feel silly and uncoordinated that is normal. It might be uncomfortable to start but the more you do it the less it hurts. When I say hurt I don’t mean pain. But it will feel like someone is poking a bruise, manageable discomfort is what you should expect. http://www.runnersworld.com/training-video/foam-roller-video-series
