So I've been reading lately about how foam rolling and static stretching work best in combination. I know foam rolling is popular around here.... 1) Who utilizes both together? 2) Anyone got any good routines for this? I worked up a decent one today based on the foam rolling out of maximum strength (Cressey's book) and different static stretches I picked up. Felt great afterwards (as usual for foam rolling) How I do it: set my interval timer to 50 seconds, roll the area for 50 seconds slowly, stopping on any pain until the pain is significantly reduced. On the beep I get up and move into whatever stretch for that area and hold until the next beep. 3) How do you guys decide which areas to foam roll? The routine out of max strength hits most the major hot spots then I just added in some areas that feel tender when I use some myofascial release on them (such as the muscle on top of the forearm when typing...). 4) Frequency per week? I try to foam roll 3 times per week, and will continue the same frequency with static stretching added in. I never do it before exercise because it seems to relax me. But if there is a TV program I wanna see (such as sportscenter on the daily). I get my timer and foam roller out and get it done. At night or in mornings to kinda wake up.
