You may find yourself wondering what role foam rolling plays in preparing you for your workout. We have received multiple questions on the significance of foam rolling prior to working out. The simple answer is it loosens up the body’s muscles. Foam rolling is a method of self-massage, which works to release “knots” in the muscles. This decrease of tension can relieve pain (including knee, back and shoulder) as well as improve flexibility and posture for various exercises, such as squats and deadlifts. Below, we will take a look at the importance of foam rolling and a dynamic warm-up prior to squatting.

Hey Kansas City, Jamie Plunkett here, I’m here at Jamie Plunkett Fitness this morning, we’re here with Robin Samberg, she’s doing her bench press workout, she’s one of our strength athletes. So this morning so far, she did speed press – 27 reps with 100 lbs, she does 9 sets of 3 with 3 varying grips. Then we did 2 sets to failure with 100 lbs, working on her bench press form, then we did a little bit of tricpes – did 4 sets of 10 on a barbell extension. Next thing we’re getting ready to do is upper back. This is gonna strengthen her back which is going to improve her bench press whenever she controls that bar down to her chest, it helps to not wear out her triceps. So, here comes her high row right here…check out how strong her back is, that’s pretty good. This is going to be her 5th year doing the Corporate Challenge – she started out at 80 lbs, this year our goal is 150. So again, Jamie Plunkett Fitness – if you have any questions on your bench press, levae me a message underneath this blog post.
