Instead of: A long foam roller
Use: Go Roller by GoFit ($30 at store.gofit.net/GoFit-Go-Roller-p/gf-fr4.htm)
Size: 4 inches in diameter by 12 inches in length
Expert says: You can get the same investment from this size roller as you can with the traditional size, which is usually about 3 feet long. "Foam rollers can be used to minimize joint stress when performing some exercises," said Dr. Levi Harrison, an orthopedic surgeon in Los Angeles, and author of "The Art of Fitness: A Journey to Self Enhancement." "They are also easy to use to improve range of motion and stretching."
