Runners, on your mark!🏃🏽‍♀️

Before you “GO,” get your body SET for a stress-free run with a proper foam rolling (aka “myofascial release”) sesh.

It’s recommended that runners complete this version of a “self deep tissue massage” 5-10 minutes before your run, then 5-10 minutes after your run to keep your structural integrity intact. This will help reduce any inflammation in your overused muscles and facial system, increase range of motion for a better, more flexible stride, plus blood and oxygen flow throughout the body.

⚠️ Foam rolling the IT Band is NOT recommended if it is inflamed. Roll out corresponding muscles that contribute to the IT Band’s tightens instead. These muscles are the glutes and thighs (inner and outer).
