www.kettlebells****.au - Kettlebells are basically cast iron, cannonball-shaped weights with a single handle on top. Working out with these weights requires dynamic swinging movements, and are thus more fun than the static act of lifting weights or even jogging in place on a treadmill. All the lifting you will do in kettlebell workouts will make use of lots of muscles, including those in your arms, back, and core. This exercise will also strengthen joints, ligaments, and tendons, and the swinging action will help you stretch. As such, you get a full body workout that provides cardio, resistance, and flexibility training all in one go.

A Short video by www.bacpain2leanframe**** on how to use the foam roller to roll out the lower back.
Tight lats are a muscle imbalance which many people suffer from.
If you apply your lats to the foam roller you will get the answer to if you have tight lats or not.
To test if you have tight lats, stand against the wall and lift your arms straight up from in front.
Try to touch the back of your hands to the wall above your head.
If you can't get the back of your hands to the wall or your back arches doing so, you have tight lats.
Perform SMFR after your general warm up or after your workouts.
SMFR is not just for muscle imbalances and injuries.
If bodybuilders or anybody interested in building bigger and more defined muscles takes the time to do SMFR before they work the body part, they will notice a better pump due to better blood flow in the muscles.
Remember to relax each muscle you apply to the foam roller for SMFR
Personal Trainer Michael Behnken, MS, CSCS

Rolling with your MuscleRoll is one of the best, most effective, and most pleasurable ways to give yourself a soothing deep muscle massage. The patent pending 18-rib technology on your MuscleRoll allows you to have many points of contact on the muscle tissue and on the trigger points, which ultimately reduces pain and discomfort.
Your MuscleRoll is made of a baby-soft material that exhibits a smooth surface and offers excellent flexibility and resilience. It is buoyant, strong, shock absorbent, flexible, and it is resistant to mildew, mold, rot, and bacteria; it also has a superior chemical resistance. Your MuscleRoll outperforms and outlives other foam rollers, and its unique rib technology, compared to other foam rollers, delivers a superior experience every time.
The process involved when using your MuscleRoll is called Self Myofascial Release (SMR), which is a technique used to release tension and realign the body. (The word "myofascial" is derived from the Latin words myo, meaning "muscle," and fascia, meaning "band.") Fascia is tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web, from the head to the toes. Fascia surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve, and organ in the body.
In its normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and able to move without restriction. When the human body engages in any type of activity, whether it's daily walking, standing, light exercise, or strenuous exercise, we generate slight micro-tears in our muscle tissue, tendons, and ligaments. Likewise, when we experience physical trauma, scarring, or inflammation, the fascia loses its flexibility; it becomes a tight, restricted source of tension to the rest of the body, and over time it has cumulative negative effects.
Changes in the fascial system influence the body's comfort and functionality. The fascia can exert excessive pressure, producing pain or restriction of motion. As a result, scar tissue forms, our muscles become tight and knotted, and our bodies become stiff. Rolling with your MuscleRoll, however, breaks up scar tissue by softening, lengthening, and realigning the fascia. Freeing constrictions in the tissue alleviates pain and improves blood circulation, and, ultimately, balance is restored back to the body. Your MuscleRoll will assist you in breaking up the scar tissue that your body has formed and will help you feel more flexible, more limber, healthier, and happier.
