Winter Fitness Group - Week 10: Foam Rolling

Foam rolling or SMR (Static Myofascia Release) is the technique of targeting trigger points to release tension. Many people don't recognize that throughout even a single day tension is built up through our entire body through either improper posture, poor walking habits, overactive muscles, or tightness caused by faulty behavior.

SMR uses rollers to target trigger points (golgi tendons) and activate them to release tension In our muscle fibers. Now there can't be a one pony trick for everyone. That is why individual assessments are necessary to see which muscles are overactive.

The following is the schedule for this week to see me and learn about foam rolling:

Tuesday, April 13th: 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm (at the free weights office)
Thursday, April 15th: 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm (ask front desk to contact me)
Saturday, April 17th: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm (at the free weights office)
