Introduction: Foam Rolling for Tight Hips, Shoulders, and More

This is our second foam rolling tutorial video where we demonstrate how to SMR (self Myofascial release) your hip flexors (tensor fascial Latea, TFL), adductor complex, piriformis (hip rotator stabilizer), latissimus dorsi, and thoracic spine. These are other common short muscles due to our sedentary lifestyle.

To learn more about SMR or foam rolling you can check out our previous foam rolling tutorial video here,

In general foam rolling is recommended for corrective exercise day, warmup, and cool down. It helps speed up muscle recovery. If you consistently combine SMR with static stretching for the short muscles, then you should see a significant improvement in your daily functional movement as well as your fitness performance.
