How To Use A Foam Roller: An Illustrated Guide for Cyclists

By Sarah Bonner

Want more flexibility? Greater strength? Increased endurance?

how-to-use-foam-rollerLGAthletes of all levels have started using foam rollers to do just that. Why has foam rolling and self myofascial release become so wildly popular? Maybe it’s the tremendous health benefits. Or because it’s inexpensive. Or due to the fact that you can do it at home—whenever it suits you. Or at the gym, if you’d rather. You can even take it along on your travels. Like a dedicated 24/7 massage therapist, your foam roller is waiting there when you need it.

Here’s a short list of what foam rolling can do for you:

  • improve range of motion
  • improve joint mobility
  • assist warm-up before workouts
  • speed up recovery
  • reduce muscle soreness post-workout
  • increase circulation
  • improve core strength and stability
  • reduce tension
  • restore and maintain healthy fascia

Regular use of a foam roller may even keep you more youthful. 90-something track star Olga Kotelko, claims that self myofascial release is a big part of the reason for her continued vitality and resilience.

In How To Use A Foam Roller, Sarah Bonner shows you the A to Zs of foam rollers and self myofascial release. First she explains what it is, how it works and why it’s so beneficial for cyclists. She follows that with a section for beginners on how to choose the right foam roller. Sarah then shows you how to use one.

Illustrated with 90 photographs (yes, 90!), How To Use A Foam Roller demonstrates clearly how to use your foam roller for a complete head-to-toe massage—and how to get to those tight sore problem areas.

Whether you’re new to self myofascial release or a regular user, there’s something useful in How To Use a Foam Roller for everyone.

  • A couple of years ago, I paid $9.95 for an email instruction book on bicycle fitness. I cannot find it in my email. I’m sure your records indicate it. Is it possible for you to resend this email booklet to me?

    I love your website and take note of several of your “hints,” like the one today about adjusting your brakes.

    Thank you.

    I want to order the book “How to Use a Foam Roller” but the order form only offers the use of Pay Pal. I don’t like Pay Pal and have never used it. I want to use my MC credit card.

    Will you pls send me a reply that will allow me to do that. Thanks
