Foam Rol-oh-Oh-OH-ler

For anyone who’s ever spent 30 minutes rolling around on the floor in awkward contortions just so that the right spot gets the much-needed attention it deserves, you know exactly how good it hurts!

(Now, now, Lovelies. Minds out of the gutter, please. You know what I meant by it, and it wasn’t that).

This is more what I had in mind:

For anyone who has yet to get down with a foam roller (like the fellow above), I ask, “What are you waiting for?!?!?” Here are some quick tips to hopefully assuage your roller fears.

Is it the price?

Yes, some foam rollers can be expensive, but there are lots of great DIY ideas out there–just look at the two below!

(Click on the pics to be taken to the tutorials, & you could be foam rolling yourself into heaven this evening!)

Is it the fear of someone someone seeing you like this?

I firmly believe in locks on doors and A-L-O-N-E time, Lovelies. Your poor, tired, achy muscles deserve a little lavishing one-on-one time! (This is not to say that I am against couples’ foam rolling time by any means πŸ˜‰ ).

Is it lack of know-how that keeps you from rolling?

Let’s remedy that, shall we? Click on any (or ALL) of these great guides! Some cover the WHY, & some cover the HOW.

Once you start incorporating foam rolling into your routines, I am certain that you will find all kinds of benefits!

Have a great weekend! (And don’t forget to share your roller with the ones you love! They can benefit, too!)

P.S.~Does anyone have a favorite roller move to share????? Variety is the spice of life, right? Go be spicy!
