How hard do you like it?!

How hard do you like it?! Smooth, ridged, spikey, little balls, big balls or with a stick…?
Obviously, as a runner we’re talking about foam rolling!
There are so many different types of self-massaging tools, question is, do they really work? Research has found that as little as 20 minutes of high-density foam rolling, immediately post-exercise can combat the adverse effects of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Continuing this every 24 hour thereafter may reduce the likelihood of muscle tenderness. Ultimately enhancing recovery of muscular performance!
This form of self-care could benefit runners seeking a recovery modality that is easy to perform, affordable, time efficient AND effective!
Running hack: Best foam roller around is a PVC pipe… Get down to your local hardware store and pick one up for less that £/$5!
