That foam roller isn’t just for mus­cle TLC

Okay, yes, foam rolling might bring a cer­tain re­lief (al­beit the kind that makes you yelp) to your tense mus­cles, but you miss out on the real fun if that’s all you use it for. ‘Us­ing a foam roller as equip­ment can up­grade a work­out from aver­age to killer,’ ex­plains Natalie Ziegler, founder and master trainer at CORE The Stu­dio. In­tro­duc­ing an el­e­ment of in­sta­bil­ity fires up more mus­cles and forces them to work harder to keep your body steady and your form cor­rect. It means not only will you get all the usual ben­e­fits from the moves them­selves, but this bal­anc­ing act also helps align the body for peak per­for­mance across all sports. Go slowly now.
