    Complete Guide to Foam Rolling is the answer to improved athletic performance. Foam rolling before, during, and after a workout can get blood flowing, stimulate muscles to work more efficiently, and initiate the recovery process to reduce soreness.

    Backed by scientific research, Complete Guide to Foam Rolling provides step-by-step instructions for 27 of the most effective foam rolling techniques for muscle preparation and recovery. Reduce pain and restore function with therapeutic movements that help rehabilitate the body and reduce the risk of injury. Learn proper techniques to breathe, relax, and roll through tight spots as part of the warm-up, flexibility work, and cool-down. Then adapt any of the ready-to-use protocols to create a customized program to address specific problem areas as well as overall muscle and nervous system needs.

    In addition, the book reviews the various types of rolling equipment and which is best for particular needs. Special tips throughout the text provide further advice for preventing injury to muscles and joints.

    Invest in your training success—and that of your clients and athletes—by applying these proven self-massage techniques. Complete Guide to Foam Rolling paves the way for better overall performance while offering certified professionals the opportunity to earn continuing education with the companion exam.

    Foam Rolling

    I really enjoyed this course. After being in the fitness industry for over 30 years, I am finding that continuing education online is just not the same as what we have been used to over the years. This course was the first one in a long time that I enjoyed, and was able to pick up some great ideas.
