A couple of recent studies caught my eye…
FMS research on how the DS, TSPU and RS look at core musculature.
Spoiler alert… pretty good.
Looks like there were immediate range of motion benefits to the foam roller but dissipated quickly (meaning there is a small window to take advantage of this) and Vertical Jump was not negatively impacted. A combo of dynamic stretching and foam rolling seemed to be beneficial to vertical jump performance.
