In our day-to-day existence of life, the average person spends a vast majority of their life in a sedentary (seated) environment. Nothing wrong with this, it’s just life and how it is!
The problem with this seated posture on our “biological structure” (our bodies tissues) is that our tissues moulds, adapts and remodels to what the environment is exposed to, in a condition called Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands (SAID principle).
This means our connective tissue, skin and muscles in and around our hips and hamstrings become “squashed” against the chair. The human body is incompressible, therefore when we do compress, it displaces. This results in muscle fibres becoming de-hydrated, pushing necessary and critical water out of the channels between our muscle connections, and in-between each individual muscle fibre in the muscle.
Well, if you have muscles stripped of their fluid, it begins to “glue” muscle fibres together resulting in “sticky and restricted” motion and muscles that are stuck together, move together. Which leads to “expensive metabolic cost”- energy ineffective movement.
During periods of rest between training, why not spend time Foam Rolling these affected areas? How Do I Foam Roll?
Make Foam Rolling part of your training regime, it makes a huge difference to your training.

Excellent service and help provided throughout, thanks a lot! Andy McGlashan (tutor) replied 99% of the time within a couple of hours to any questions and when providing feedback to me, top guy couldn't ask for more
The course was really helpful and it gave me the skills I need to become a Personal Trainer, I have now started work at Pure Gym in Warrington.
All of the admin staff were incredibly helpful and instrumental in my attendance and attainment of the course, and my tutor Tracey Lilburn at the Newcastle school was overwhelming supportive and absolutely the reason for my success.
I get very quickly answers to my questions.
