Fascia is the sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin that stabilizes, attaches, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.
Tension from either inactivity or overuse can cause your body to become sore. Myofascial release therapy aims to help treat that pain and immobility by relaxing the muscle, improving circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.
You add a lot of stress to your body when you work out and myofascial release is a perfect way to work that stress out of your body.
Three main actions aid in myofascial release. Vibration, stretching, and gently working the targeted areas. A great way to achieve this is with a foam roller. Those allow you to stretch and work problem areas at the same time.
Rollers like the Victor Fitness X come with an added vibration feature. If you take 10-15 minutes after your workouts to work on recovery you're sure to feel better faster.
Sleep, rest and hydration will keep you feeling refreshed and you can start seeing results from the gym faster.
