Dr Fontaine: How to use a foam roller

Posted by:

Everyone knows that after an exhausting WOD, the one thing you (should/sometimes/kinda) look forward to it using a foam roller to help those aching muscles feel better later on.

Here’s a great video from Trident’s Dr. Matt Fontaine on how best to use the roller after a work out. You’ll recognize some of the movements, but there a few we don’t normally see that could be helpful if you ever feel tight in certain areas. It’s also a good way to see how it should be done to better your own post-WOD cool down.

    I saw your foam roller review and wanted to share my product information with you maybe you can do another review when my product is available to you. My name is Gary Miller and my company is launching its first 5 in 1 home and travel fitness product next month called the ProUnit Performance Trainer. Once the site is up you can find us at http://www.TheProUnit.com until then find us on Facebook at the ProUnit Performance Trainer.

    The ProUnit is a 5 in 1 product…
    1) Foam Roller
    2) Ab Roller
    3) Rotating PushUp handles
    4) Ab Wheel
    5) Stretch Strap
    The other great advantage of the ProUnit is that since the tube is hollow you can put extra fitness products in the tube like fitness bands, jump rope, agility ladder, suspension straps…pretty much you can be creative even a mat wraps around outside for a place to work out on. The ProUnit Performance Trainer is the fitness tool of 2013.
    We are planning to launch feb 1st so hopefully we can share the ProUnit with you then. Until that time please like our ProUnit Performance Trainer Page here on Facebook. We would love to share content as we grow.

    Gary,
