How can foam rolling prepare the body for a triathlon competition and also help it recover quickly after?
Foam rolling or self massage can improve the performance of the triathletes by ensuring that the muscles are warm and knots free before the race and for the endurance of the race. If used on a regular basis as part of the preparation for the competition the body will feel less tired during and after the race and the muscle recovery time will be reduced.
It is so important to remember that the training before the race needs to be a balance of intense running, cycling and swimming and enough resting period for the muscles to build strength, endurance but also flexibility which is where the foam roller can really help.
The most effective way of releasing muscle tension/soreness and active trigger points is through deep tissue massage, which is the most traditional way. Why, because the masseuse is able to locate the trigger points through feel and touch and then apply direct pressure for about 30-60 seconds or until the client cannot take the sensation any longer. The pressure has to be significant for the release to take place and the knots to smooth out and muscle to lengthen and relax.
Not many can and are having deep tissue massages after each training session as it is very time consuming and costly. The TLV Fitness massage roller is really just a tool used as a substitute for the hands, elbows and forearms of the massage therapist. The roller is used to locate trigger points and then apply direct rolling pressure to those trigger points to help them release. The truth is that applying direct pressure to trigger points can be painful.
The TLV Fitness roller can aid the Triathlete lovers by withstanding heavy use and is designed to treat those painful knots and stiff muscles, working through the fascia to ensure they get the best out of their game.
