Compendium on Foam Rollers
We're spending a lot of time researching foam rollers right now. We'll release our findings here once we're finished.
More specifically, what we're looking into are the published benefits of self myofacial release with respect to foam rollers.
What you can expect in the near future
Our main focuses at the moment are:
- Building an exercise database (Beta Users). Evaluating and breaking down various foam roller exercises with an emphasis on proper execution.
- Evaluating exercises within the context of the respective goal(s). Items such as SMF, increased flexibility, point sources, strength, and scar tissue breakdown
- A realistic database of which muscle group(s) can be targeted using a foam roller and to what extent (Beta Users)
Which foam roller?
For the current build stage, we are focusing primiarily on a database of exercises. Once completed, we'll look more closely at the roles/impacts of using a different foam roller types. (Stiffness, surface properties, length, etc.)
