Myofascial Release and Foam Rolling

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

This study found that using a foam roller can increase nitric oxide levels in the blood. This can improve blood flow and enhance recovery. Try rolling sore muscle groups for at least 15-seconds for best results. Objects like baseballs and lacrosse balls can also be used for more direct pressure on tricky spots like the upper back and shoulders.
