ROLL ON UP
New research from the University of Stirling in Scotland has shown that hitting the foam roller before your workout makes exercise easier. Volunteers who used a foam roller prior to exercise for three days straight were able to perform better leg extensions than those who didn’t. But this isn’t the only benefit of the neoprene roll. It can also be used post sweat session to reduce muscle soreness and improve flexibility without impairing strength. So if you need some help getting started, visit preventionaus.com.au/foamrolling.
