Foam Rolling Basics

So you’ve got a foam roller, now what do you do?  Foam rolling doesn’t take any special skill.  You basically lie on the foam roller and move around.  The primary use of a foam roller is myofascial release on the thighs.  This includes foam rolling the entire thigh: inside, front, outside, and back.  In other words, you foam roll the hamstrings, quadriceps, groin, and hip muscles.  I could have made a video of foam rolling on the thighs, but this British dude did a great job of that (I’ve reviewed all 80 something foam rolling videos on YouTube and this guy is the best).
