What size roller should you get? I have a half roller, or short one. I later regretted not getting the longer one. I plan or ordering one and using both. The book says, "If you're a beginner, a half roller is best. If you're looking to challenge yourself, you'll want a circular roller. Some people purchase one long roller and cut it to best meet their needs."
The book shows you how to get on and off the roller, how to sit on one and even lay on one correctly to do your exercises.
The foam roller is a great help for poor posture. In the book we read, "Poor posture doesn't just affect us cosmetically --- it can also affect our breathing. Hunch over and try to take a deep breath, then do the same thing but while sitting or standing tall. Notice how much your ribs expand and how much air you take in."
Part 2 offers sports/activities-specific foam roller exercises to help with those specific needs. For example, there is a program for golfers, runners and tennis and racquetball among others.
Part 3 instructs the reader in all the many exercises, complete with photos to show how to do them correctly. They include exercises in . . .
There is an exercise on each page and each page generally has two or three photographs, demonstrating the correct way to do the exercises.Read more ›
This book takes foam roller usage to the next level. It has exercises for rehab and strength from beginner to more advanced levels.
Ideal book for home exerciser or exercise professional.
Note of caution: if you have never used a foam roller, start with a half roll or have someone spot you.
It is printed very poorly, the pictures are in black & white which may have been OK if they were printed a bit darker or on better quality paper.As it is, they are so faint, it would be an effort to follow the exercises using the images & really not worth it.
I am returning it right away & getting a DVD set instead.
