I've been seeing foam rollers all over YouTube and Instagram lately. Are they worth all the hype (and money)? Are they really that much better than doing standard stretching? What kind of benefits have you experienced?

I have seen some people used it; one even used a tennis ball! If you do a squat movement and feel pain somewhere, then you can use the rollers. They help to release the compressed muscles which promotes healing. I'm not planning to try it soon since manual massages and plenty of rest work just fine for me. Have you tried it?

You saw someone using a tennis ball? Huh, that's interesting. That would certainly be a lot cheaper than a foam roller. I wonder how good of a substitute it is. I don't really do any kind of massage, just stretching. I guess it's something I should look into more because my muscles generally take a bit to recover. Thanks for the help! I haven't tried it yet but I'm going to look into the tennis ball thing.
