70: How and Why You Should be Foam Rolling with Nick Mueller

Nick Mueller joins us again to discuss how important self myofascial release/massage (SMR) can be for a golfer, and how it can be done very effectively if you have the right kind of tools, like a foam rolling.

Nick is the head of Golf Performance at Innovative Fitness in South Surrey, BC , Canada.  Nick is an expert when it comes to strength and conditioning, especially in the world of golf and fitness.  Nick was a guest on an earlier episode of the 18STRONG Podcast (Episode 010) which we discussed regressing and correcting movement in the golfer in order to progress and make improvements.  This episode falls right in line with the last one.

Knowing SMR techniques and how to properly do them with a small piece of equiptment (like a foam roller or ball) can save you lots of time and money trying to get your body back in order or recovering from a tough day on the course.
