Myofascial release is a form of pressure point therapy that is designed to break up tight tissues as a result of stress that has been placed on the body.

As I was saying a foam roller is also helpful in getting to the larger surface area of the legs and hips. I’ve also included a rather basic method for using the foam roller across the IT band, thighs, and hamstrings right here. Check it out.
Myofascial release should be a regular part of your strength and conditioning program. As a public service announcement these exercises may be uncomfortable which is a sign you need it more. The more you practice the more you will start to feel relief. Myofascial release will also prime the muscles for a good stretch so I would recommend doing these prior to a good stretch.
