Many thanks to Mike Perry, owner of Skill Of Strength for this excellent video on foam rolling. Mike addresses several key factors that many other videos haven’t addressed:

  1. Pain should not be a part of a foam rolling practice. Foam rollers are not torture devices but tools to help you move and feel better.
  2. The IT band, although often tight, doesn’t necessarily need to be rolled. Mike gives a great explanation of best practices to address an overtight IT band.
  3. Breathing should be a focus of a foam rolling practice.
  4. Use foam rolling as a “checklist” to get in touch with your body.
