Located at the front of the thighs, the quad muscles are formed from four different muscles. This important muscle group is essential for activities such as walking, running and any physical activity which involves bending and straightening of the knee. As one of the areas prone to sports injuries and muscle tightness, it’s important to look after quads both before and after exercise or training.
A vibrating foam roller can be used to alleviate muscle tightness in quads by using the magic combination of pressure and vibrations to soften the connective tissue around the muscles as well as targeting trigger points, encouraging blood flow to the area and flushing away lactic acid. This can help stretch the muscles for increased performance and range of motion.
In our expert video guide, we show you how to use a foam roller on both quads at the same time, moving over the top of the roller while supporting yourself with your elbows.
