We have been working on this on Saturdays... Foam rolling is an excellent way to work out those knots - especially when you can't get a massage. It will help you iron out your muscle fibers and break up the fascia so you can use your body more efficiently. Just worked with a client today who couldn't bring her knee up into a knee hug; she said her hip was going out. Then we stretched and foam rolled and she was just fine! She was amazed. We just need to roll more often. It will hurt less every time! I recommend 5 minutes after your workout. Get into the habit and reap the benefits!

If you spend 15 minutes on a high-intensity workout (HIIT), the benefits are magnified. Scientific studies show that they include:
The bottom line is- get moving! Shoot to give yourself at least 15 minutes day (but remember- make it a flexible preference, not a demand). I've been dropping short stretch and fitness videos on my YouTube channel to help you reach this goal. Let me know what you think!
