    Complete Guide to Foam Rolling is your answer to helping clients move better, feel better, and improve their athletic performance. Foam rolling before, during, and after a workout can get blood flowing, stimulate muscles to work more efficiently, and initiate the recovery process to reduce soreness.

Reduce pain and restore function with therapeutic movements that help rehabilitate the body and reduce the risk of injury. Learn proper techniques to help your clients breathe, relax, and roll through tight spots as part of their warm-up, flexibility work, and cool-down. Then adapt any of the ready-to-use protocols or create a customized program to address specific problem areas as well as overall muscle and nervous system needs.

    In addition, the book reviews the various types of rolling equipment and which is best for particular needs. Special tips throughout the text provide further advice for preventing injury to muscles and joints.

    Great book so far

    I've just started the reading for the course and it's an easy book to follow along with. I work with a lot of clients and people who are just tight and I'm looking to expand my toolbox of exercises which can help them.

    Easy to read, great content

    Highly recommend. As a long time SC coach, this was mostly a review, but still many new great areas to learn and implement in personal and professional fashion. Well worth the CEUs too.
