PREVIEW: An introductory DVD to using the Foam Roller for fitness and healing. The segments flow into a 33-minute routine or can be accessed individually. Train and massage core muscles, legs, hips, arms, shoulders. Relaxed, educational instruction; options and modifications.
ACHIEVE: Overall toning and flexibility; strong arms, shoulders, abs; shapely legs; firm buns; flexible thighs and hips to sit more comfortably at your computer for long hours; looser hamstrings and calves; improved circulation of bodily fluids, enhanced digestion and body detoxification. Runners will love the outer thigh stretches (IT band) that make jogging safer on knees and back. The deep, heavenly back massage will have you beg for more. Yes, rolling helps to diminish cellulite!
HOW TO CHOOSE A ROLLER that suits both your needs and budget? Prices: $12-$80; lengths: 12”-36”. Expensive doesn’t mean more effective or durable. White (softer) costs less; ideal for Beginners with painful muscle knots to work out. 12”-18”, great for travel, less versatile for exercise and massage than 36”. Advanced users consider high-density black. Lasts longer, provides very deep tissue massage. “Rumble” (spiky) tends to poke you and not roll; “Grid” looks fancy but its foam padding feels mushy vs. firm enough to work into muscle tissue and move out fluids.
SURPRISING FACTS: Once you overcome a possible initial shock of muscle discomfort (as tired, tensed or injured muscles are being massaged) the feeling of ease in one’s skin is unmistakable and so desirable that it can become addictive – a healthy and beneficial addiction, indeed.
PLEASE NOTE *** Mat and Foam Roller are not included with this DVD.
