Foam rolling is all the rage — with good rea­son. In a re­cent study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Ath­letic

Train­ing, re­searchers had sub­jects do 10 sets of 10 back squats, pur­posely caus­ing ex­haus­tion and re­sul­tant de­layed on­set mus­cle sore­ness. Sub­jects who used the foam roller for the next three days felt and per­formed bet­ter on sub­se­quent sprint­ing, power and dy­namic strength-en­durance tests, and they were able to per­form the same num­ber of squats 48 hours post-ex­er­cise. The con­trol group, how­ever, needed an­other full day to re­cover. Go to Page 22 for more on the lat­est in foam-rolling re­search!
