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/cool 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.

Stretch

 

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.

  • Calves
  • Hamstrings
  • Hip Flexors
  • Lower Back
  • Pecs (chest muscles)
Strengthen

 

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 muscle groups.

  • Feet
  • Shins
  • Glutes
  • Core
  • Upper Back

Our muscles are encapsulated in a connective tissue called Fascia. Myofascial release techniques focus on easing the tension in the trigger points. We will show you how to use a foam roller for effective Myofascial release.

  • Calves
  • Quads
  • I.T. Band
  • Hamstrings
  • Back

Good Form is Transforming Lives

Good running form is the single most important thing I've learned in 30 years at Playmakers. I question why it took us so long to learn it.

Curt Munson

After ten years of not running because of injuries, I've been able to run since incorporating GFR, feeling great and avoiding injuries.

John Benedict

My whole life I've experienced pain while running. GFR got me off running on my heels and onto my midfoot. This not only improved my efficiency and speed, but it's also made me a healthier runner for life.

Dr. Jeffrey R. Kovan, DO

Good Form Running has been very helpful for me. I started out not being able to run very far at all and now am able to run a total of 6 miles!

Kristen Fell

Coming from a cycling paradigm, the last thing I wanted to do was run. It wasn't enjoyable and it was a horrible shock to my quads. Since learning good form, running has become easier and more fluid for my body.

Mike Homan

Starting the program, I could run (slowly jog) about ½ a mile, then had to walk. Now I’m running 5 miles without stopping. The instruction has also kept me injury free, something that hasn’t happened for me in several years.
