There’s a lot of fear around foam rolling – yes, it can be uncomfortable, but man, it does the job; especially in times when you can’t get to a physio or a sports therapist.
It’s pretty simple really – you just lay the offending body part over the roller and roll! To increase the intensity of the roll, reduce the amount of bodyweight you ‘take’ with your arms or lay your other leg (if doing legs!) on top to increase the weight.

In the meantime, here are my top picks.
1. This Trigger Point roller is the one I use. Yes it is amongst the most expensive, but I’ve had it for YEARS and it’s light weight, hollow and extremely durable. Since I purchased this one, there are many more to choose from now, but I stand by this as a great purchase!
There really are endless products to choose from, don’t let overwhelm stop you.
Like so many things in life – you get what you pay for!
