As its name implies, a foam roller is a large “log” made out of foam that helps your body to warm up for exercise and recover afterward. Among its many benefits are:
- Improved circulation
- Increased blood flow
- Releases muscle tightness
- Breaks down knots in your muscles
- Reduces pain
Using a foam roller is actually similar to getting a massage (only less expensive!). As you roll on it, fibrous tissue is broken down and circulation is boosted, helping to relieve tension and pain. When you perform various exercises with the roller it also helps to engage your muscles and build strength. Plus, because the foam roller is unstable, using it works your core muscles and helps improve balance.

We’re told a judge had issued a warrant for the UFC star’s arrest for violating the terms of his probation after he was cited for drag racing in Albuquerque last week.
Jones was sentenced to probation last year after being convicted in a hit and run case in which the UFC star crashed into a pregnant woman’s car and then ran from the scene on foot.
One of the terms of Jones’ probation was to not get into any trouble with the law — and the judge felt the drag racing citation qualified as a violation.
What are your thoughts on the video? Do you think Jon or the policeman should have handled it differently?
Earlier this week made remarks on a Filipino television station earlier this week.
“Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?” Pacquiao said. “If you have male-to-male or female-to-female [relationships], then people are worse than animals.”
Manny Pacquiao: Gay People Are Worse Than Animals
Pacquiao apologized on Twitter within hours.
“I’m sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals,” Pacquiao tweeted. “Please forgive me for those I hurt. God bless!”
In the tweet, Pacquiao had a video message in Filipino wearing a Nike shirt with the special logo the company has for him.
Nike terminated its endorsement contract with boxer Manny Pacquiao on Wednesday after he made derogatory remarks about same-sex couples.
Manny Pacquiao apologizes for Comparing Homosexual to Animals
“We find Manny Pacquiao’s comments abhorrent,” the company said in a statement. “Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community.”
Based on Pacquiao’s comments, a spokesman confirmed that he is no longer on the company’s endorsement roster. Pacquiao, 37, had endorsed Nike for a little more than eight years.
On Thursday, Pacquiao said he respects Nike’s decision to drop him but stood pat on his opposition to same-sex marriage and added that he is happy that “a lot of people were alarmed by the truth.”
On Friday, Manny Pacquiao stood by his homophobic comments and said he was telling the truth when he compared gay people to animals, two days after Nike cancelled his $1million-per-year contract because of the slurs.
The eight-division world champion spoke to reporters on Friday after a training session in General Santos, his hometown in the Philippines, ABC reported.
‘What I did wrong was just comparing the people to animals, but you know what I am telling is the truth,’ he said.
‘I mean I am just telling what the Bible says. We believe God and then we should honor the word of God.’
What are your thoughts on his comments and do you think other endorsements should follow Nike & drop him?
