Boost recovery and flexibility with this magical tool: #NotHyperbole

If you use a foam roller only to rehab injured muscles, you're not getting the most out of it.

Rolling improves circulation, which gets the body ready for a workout and helps it recover afterward. And because rolling breaks down knots that limit range of motion, it preps muscles for stretching. Try these routines, moving slowly and stopping and holding on tender spots. WARMUP Rolling increases blood flow and releases muscle tightness that can interfere with proper running form.
