Following a training block of mostly intense turbo sessions, my legs are feeling the build-up of fatigue. They’re especially tight and “achy” this week. Something I tend to neglect is a routine of stretching and foam rolling. Unfortunately I don’t have the budget for my own personal in-house sports masseuse so the next best thing is using a foam roller. This video from Garmin-Sharp outlines a good routine for cyclists:
If you’ve never used a foam roller before it can be a painful experience, but it’s a good type of pain! Or maybe that’s just me? Regular foam rolling is great for loosening stiff muscles and massaging away any knots or tight spots. Make it part of your regular routine and reap the benefits (I should really follow my own advice).
