Your Favorite MOBOT move?
Handstand! JK I like rolling my butt. :D

 

When did you start foam rolling?
Probably about 10 years ago.

 

  How has MOBOT helped you?
I love traveling with my Mobot! It’s really hard to bring a foam roller on trips but this way I can stay hydrated and stay limber--especially after long plane rides.

 

Your advice to anyone new to foam rolling?
Slow down and feel the force, Luke. Most people think that when you use a foam roll you are somehow mashing your muscle fibers and fascia back into the proper shape or pliability. No pain no gain, right? Not quite. If using a foam roller could somehow rearrange or distort our muscles or fascia we would be in big trouble!

 

Instead, think about it like sending a message to your nervous system. We apply pressure, our body senses it and it adapts (gets more relaxed/flexible). So stop trying to smash your body. Slow down and FEEL. If you find a tender area try backing off a bit until the pain feels more like tolerable discomfort. Try slowing down or stopping completely over the area, allowing your nervous system to make the adaptations.
