Greg cannon here today I'm going to go over a quick trick you can use to relieve sore type muscles if you've been been out hiking or you've done a workout with lots of squats in and your legs may feel pretty tight pretty sore so I'm going to show you just a quick trick you can use to help alleviate some of that pain or tightness so I've got a

good old-fashioned kitchen kitchen rolling pin here and this is a tool we're going to use to help roll out our muscles you can get different myofascial release rollers at stores Luke's locker or any pretty much any running store or shoe store maybe a Sports Authority or Dick's Sporting Goods might have something similar some of them may have different kind of spiky parts on each each thing but just for starters if you have a kitchen

rolling pin it will work just fine so what we're going to do is let's say you've got really tight calves we're just going to lay on the ground bring this leg up at a slight angle or start on the upper calf on the inside part of the leg can apply light pressure up and down that calf muscle if you've got any tightness in here you're certainly going to feel it so it's

kind of searching for any tight spots when you find one just says tight right there I'm just going to do some small one to two inch rolls over that area about twenty to thirty and kind of hunt around use different angles to find spots that might really be tight so you're kind of looking for trigger trigger points or just tight tie balls a tissue inside of the muscle a lot of us are

going to be tie it down here towards the Achilles tendon the soleus so pretty much underneath the calf this will affect our a core range of motion so anytime you've been do any hiking or running down through here the lower lower calf from the area might be tight so to get that just down a little bit our leg on an angle do the same thing applying pressure up on to that muscle and

you'll definitely feel feel this most of us are pretty tight through here it's about 20 to 30 rolls looking for tight spots pretty tight right there just going to hang out on this spot so I'll loosen up a little bit this is good to do before you work out or after you work out I prefer to do more of my rolling after half-hour workout usually before I feel pretty good I'll I'll

just do a little bit of walking maybe some jogging to get the blood flowing and feel pretty loose after workout if I'm sore I'll do this to help help prevent it from getting too tight and to help work out any tightness you can also do it on the front front part of your have your leg here the anterior tibialis if this this tissue this part of your leg is going on pretty tight

it's the same d same idea here just light pressure down rolling back and forth so it's basically like you're just giving yourself a massage and sometimes it may hurt that just means are really tight spend a little bit of extra time on on that area where it feels painful and over time you know if you do this every day for a month or so it won't hurt nearly as much it'll feel it'll

feel good so another part of our leg let's say your quads or quads are pretty tight like mine usually are the same thing down user role tight on the inside part of my quads down towards my knees spend a lot of time through here about 20 to 30 rolls and then just do big rolls on the main part of our our quadricep the front part of our thighs here and this will

just help loosen up the tissue it gets them the blood flowing in there I do about 20 to 30 on each section obviously do the right leg do the left leg and you should feel better I would do this every day every day that you came for at least at least a week or so see how it feels and once you start doing it you'll be addicted anytime you start to feel tight

you feel sore just use the roller and you'll feel great thanks for watching hope that helps
