5 Muscles Runners Should Foam Roll For Best Recovery And Performance

fitness Aug 08, 2018

Foam rolling is an incredibly beneficial and often neglected component of your training routine.  

Foam rolling loosens muscles, increases blood flow, increases your range of motion, helps to prevent injuries, and improves your overall recovery time.  Not to mention, your body will thank you with less stiffness and discomfort after just a few short sessions!

We recommend creating a goal for yourself of 30 minutes of foam rolling per week (3x10 minute sessions).  This can be done pre or post workout (or both!)  Set an interval timer to 1 minute intervals, choose these 5 different muscle groups and be sure to perform on your right and left side.  

Here are our top 5 muscle groups for runners, but feel free to interchange any others you like!

1. Glutes

2. Hamstrings

3. Calves

4. IT Bands

5. Quads
