Foam Rolling- A guide for manual tissue manipulation
Foam Rolling has almost become synonymous with training and performance these days, where more often than not, athletes and gym goers are seen either spending time on the floor rolling around, or carrying coloured logs around with them where ever they go.
The real questions become of course, what are these coloured foam logs? What are the benefits of utilising these pieces of equipment? And what is the best way to use these tools?
This Ebook aims to answer these questions, hoping to clarify all of the key points and benefits to Foam Rolling, as well as some integral exercises and techniques for getting the absolute most from your Foam Rolling sessions.
By integrating some or all of the information in this book, you can gain some key strategies for not only helping mobility, range of motion and wellbeing but some great methods for preparing for exercise and training, and recovering optimally from those tough and challenging sessions.
Rolling and Self Myofascial Release (SMR) strategies are handy tools that anyone can utilise and can be both therapeutic and performance enhancing in nature.
To quote the world renowned author and strength and conditioning coach, Mark Rippetoe, “Training is physical activity performed for purposes of satisfying a long term performance goal, and is there- fore about the process instead of the constituent workouts of the process.
In a nut shell, Mark Rippetoe highlights the importance of training being more than the crazy workout you lay down in the gym or sporting field, but involves a specific process that leads towards a specific goal.
After all it is this process that leads us towards why we are in the gym in the first place, which is why we follow particular programs designed to meet our individual needs.
1. Peace of Mind
With over 200,000 satisfied customers, Iron Edge is Australia's No.1 high performance strength training brand. We've been fitting out elite high performance gyms for the likes of Collingwood Football Club and the Australian Defence Forces for years. We know what you need and what you don't. Our products are constantly being tried, tested and improved to be the best they can be. And we stand behind them accordingly.
2. Product Range
Iron Edge has one of the biggest ranges of high performance training equipment available in Australia. From Nike Romaleos weightlifting shoes, through to kettlebells, Power Bands and weightlifting equipment. In all we stock 100’s of different products at our warehouse facility in Melbourne so you'll always be able to get what you want and, most importantly, when you need it. That's why Iron Edge is the choice of Australia's best athletes, coaches and gyms. And why anything else is just compromise.
At Iron Edge we employ experienced and qualified engineers to design, test and then source the best manufacturers of all our equipment. Up until 2017 we manufactured in-house, but market pressures forced us to move manufacturing overseas. However we weren’t going to compromise on the quality and structural integrity of our products, so after rigorous research, we’ve been able to partner with some of the industry’s best and most experienced equipment manufacturers. In many ways they are more advanced and sophisticated than our in-house work shop, so you can be assured that the quality of all our products meet the same high standards and are worthy of the Iron Edge brand.
When you promise 'serious training' you have to back it up. Fortunately we do, drawing on our extensive experience dealing with Australia's best coaches, athletes, sports scientists and exercise physiologists. It's enabled Iron Edge to be one of Australia's leading authorities in high performance strength training- and with an educational arm of the business comprised of over ten certified courses launching soon, we plan on increasing the industry standard across the board.
5. No 'BS' Guarantee
We don't just say our products are the best available. We back it up with an industry leading guarantee. That means if your Iron Edge equipment is faulty or fails to deliver on its promise we will replace it. Conditions do apply.
