Stretch, Strengthen, & Roll
You're constantly on the move. Whether you're running, walking, biking, or skipping around town, you don't have time to let aches, pains, and injuries slow you down. Learn how to stretch, strengthen, & roll your way to feeling great, every day!
What is Stretch, Strengthen, & Roll?
Stretch, Strengthen, & Roll (SSR) was designed to introduce particpants to best practices to remain injury free. Over the years, we have found that injuries often persist or reoccur due to unchecked muscle imbalances in combination with improper warm up/cooldown routines and myofascial release.
In this class, we will discuss common muscle imbalances and why they occur, demonstrate and practice dynamic and static stretches, then demonstrate and practice strengthening exercises. Finally, we will go over the importance of myofacial release and how to do it effectively.
Stretch, Strengthen, & Roll: 3 Simple Points
From your head to your feet, keeping your body well-balanced is key to leading a healthy, active, & pain-free life. In this free clinic, we'll teach you the techniques we've found to be the most effective at doing just that.
Whether it's from training or everyday use, our muscles can get tight very easily. These tight muscles can cause loss of flexibility and eventually lead to injuries. We will show you how to stretch the most commonly tight muscles groups.
- Hip Flexors
- Lower Back
- Pecs (chest muscles)
We tend to use the same muscles from day-to-day. This can cause muscle imbalances & eventually lead to injury. We will show you exercises that help to strengthen some of the most commonly underutilized and weaker muscle groups.
- Upper Back
Our muscles are encapsulated in a connective tissue called Fascia. Myofascial release techniques focus on easing the tension in the trigger points, or knots, of the Fascia and muscles. We will show you how to use a foam roller for effective Myofascial release.
- I.T. Band
