When is the best time to preform mfr, before or after a workout? Or does it not matter when it is done? Just curious cause i would like to add mfr to my training.
Both. I try to do it before if I have time. If I don't have time then I do it after or later that night. It is amazing.
I foam roll in the evenings, while watching tv. weather I workout or not. It feels great, after a workout. Or the day after, when your sore.
nice im definitely going to start doing it soon haha
I do a full-body session in the morning and then a smaller session before training.

Combine it with stretching for the best results. It feels great by itself (not when you're doing it though) but stretch yourself out before and after for optimal returns.
Word of warning, I threw my back out towards the end of last year by hammering my back a bit too much. Very careful rolling that area now. Legs/glutes where I really notice the difference and that drives the squat and deadlift up so I'm happy.
Very helpful imo.
seems like the benefits of mfr are pretty good im excited to start using it
It really is helpful. I don't do it enough.
