I use a foam roller and other things that help

loosen up my joints and ligaments.

foam rolling.

The first time you see someone foam rolling it's probably going to seem pretty weird, but hang on with your judgements because rolling it out can have many positive effects on how you feel and how you skate.

 

Foam rolling is essentially a poor man's sports massage, it's a self massage technique that's easy to do and that leaves you feeling amazing. These days you'll find foam rollers everywhere; The Berrics, your local physiotherapist clinic, the gym, Chris Roberts’ living room, even your grandma's probably got one.

Having a quick razz on a foam roller can help prepare your body for a skate, keep you skating for longer, decrease muscle pain and other pains, and speed up recovery.
