A few people have mentioned to me that they have become increasingly sore as the weights have increased lately for back squats and shoulder press. To help combat this soreness even though it isn’t always programmed during class time you may want to roll out using the foam rollers and lacrosse balls. Basically through strength training you are creating micro tears in your muscle that as they heal make your muscles stronger and/or bigger. On top of loosening tight muscles foam rolling promotes blood flow to these muscles healing them faster and getting rid of the soreness a little quicker.
