I Start My Day with Foam

9783490I Start My Day with Foam

(You will still need a stretching routine)
Do you wake up with your neck and back as stiff as a board? Do you feel like a mummy, getting out of bed? When was the last time you touched your back? No seriously. When? Most people can barely put soap on their back, let alone stretch it.   Why is reaching your back important? If your back is very stiff now? How are you going to feel in 10 years?  That’s what I always think about and you should too. It’s important to have a healthy supply of blood surrounding your spine . Before you drink your coffee, roll on foam!

I can Move Like a 20 Year Old
When I foam roll my back in the morning, I can feel the warm flow of blood ripple throughout my spine.  My head turns side to side easier, the release of tension leaves my neck, and I feel a new sense of mobility. Foam rolling, before you start your day will help energize your body.

When you are sleeping, your body is lying in a docile position and your blood is basically sitting in a pool resting until you wake up. When you attempt to get out of the bed in the morning, you are moving body parts  that do not have enough blood flow to move fluidly  yet.  It takes a few minutes to get your blood  flowing throughout your entire body .  How can you make the transition from lying in the bed, to beginning your day easier than before ? Roll with foam.

Always remember that foam rolling does not increase the length of your muscles.  You will still need a stretching routine to maintain flexibility

A healthy Spine is crucial to whole body health. I remember being an undergrad at Montclair State University and being obsessed about how the spine works. I studied how it moved intensively for 4 years and realized it was in fact the muscles  surrounding the spine that was the most prominent factors in how old we actually  look and feel. A healthy spine = a healthy life.

How to foam roll your spine
Gently rolling your spine  on a foam roller will help send blood throughout your spine, which will in return give life to your entire body and rejuvenate tired and tense muscles. One of the primary benefits cells derive from blood is oxygen. Muscles need oxygen to operate effectively .
Please consult with your health physician, before trying this.
