Actress Jordana Brewster once told ELLE.com that coming out of a foam rolling session makes her "literally feel high." Who can blame her? The simple tool is a savior for stress and sore muscles when you use it right. As for how to get that sweet relief, FLEX Studios Director of Pilates Jenn Seracuse has one tip: "Search and destroy." By that, she means you should avoid the common mistake of rolling over the entire length of a body part mindlessly and instead find an inch that's tight, focus on it for a few seconds, then slowly work your way over the muscle group.
Here, Seracuse demonstrates five easy foam rolling moves you can do to undo sitting all day at a desk, prep you for a high intensity workout, or help you recover after exercising.
