Q: Should I use a Foam Roller before teeing off? And for how long?     A: 7 to 8 minutes should be about right.

Q: Should I use a Foam Roller before working out?  A: This is a great way to stretch and warm-up the body before the start of your workout!

Foam Roller Workout every golfer should be doing.

Quad Foam Roll: Place the roller underneath the thighs.  Gently roll along the length of the thigh putting gentle pressure on the muscles to stretch and lengthen.  When you find a tender spot, stay on the spot for about 20 or 30 seconds.

IT Band Foam Roll: As with the Quad Foam Roll, move along the outer thigh (or IT Band) in a steady motion, pausing for 20 to 30 seconds when you hit a tender spot.

Hip Flexor Foam Roll: Lay on your stomach, supporting yourself with your forearms.  Place foam roller just inside the boney notch in the front of your hip.  Maintain for 20 to 30 seconds when you find a tender spot. Repeat on the other side.

Glute Foam Roll: Place your butt on top of the roller, assume a figure 4 position with the legs, roll back until you find that tender spot and hold for 20 or 30 seconds.  Repeat on the other side.

Subscapularis Roll: Assume a side-lying position with the foam roller right into the armpit.  Start by maintaining pressure on the armpit and begin to slide the arm away from the body, hold for a few seconds before returning the arm back towards the foam roller.

Thoracic Spine Roll: Lie down face-up placing the foam roller between the shoulder blades. Put your hands behind your head and slowly drive your elbows towards the floor.  Move the roller along your back, holding for 20 to 30seconds on any tender spots.

Pec Minor Foam Roll: Assume a face-down position over the foam roller trying to get the edge of the roller into the upper chest portion.  Slowly move to a different area once you feel the tightness release upward or downward by just a few inches.
