This is a comprehensive step by step guide on how to do SMR, if you wish to know MORE about, trigger points and self myofascial release (SMR) please refer to our article, WHAT IS SMR.

Equipment you will need?

You will need a roller and a lacrosse ball.

The roller is a good tool to cover more surface area as you roll. This means that it is more like a sports massage and does not penetrate as many layers of tissue. The lacrosse ball is smaller and harder. This is going to get results similar to a deep tissue massage.

Foam rolling is often used interchangeably to my self myofascial relate (SMR) but it is in fact a form of self-myofascial release. SMR is where pressure is applied to certain body parts to relieve muscle tension and release trigger points. It is a great tool for injury prevention and aides in increasing range of motion.

SMR works by returning your muscles and soft tissue to their native form. Exercise, injury, and the rigours of life can cause knots that restrict mobility and performance. By smashing those ‘knots’ and allowing soft tissue to operate co...

Operation Broken Wing has been an event where various fitness enthusiasts across different gyms and different disciplines come together to do a workout to raise funds for the Forgotten Youth.

Young people are, quite literally, the future. Using the UN's definition of Youths as individuals aged 10-18, these people are in the prime stages of emotional, mental and physical growth, this is a critical time when they are shaping their personalities, likes, dislikes, interests and friendships. This stage of life is over in the blink of an eye and with the busy lives we lead as adults this important time is often overlooked. 

But what if Youths in Singapore have potential? What if one day they could be the next Prime minister, Movie star or Nationa...

I was having a conversation with my wife and asked her, “ If I started up a women's defense course would you attend?” Her response both surprised me and after thinking about it was what inspired me to write this post.

She said, “If I truly wanted to learn how to defend myself why would I want to learn and train only in a women's only class. If I’m training in a comfortable situation and need to feel ‘safe’ in order to do so then I’ve missed the point of training and I would question its efficacy.”

I have been considering coining a “Women’s Self Defence...

Neglected. Misunderstood. Disregarded. These are the common issues that the forgotten youths usually face. “Who are these people?” You may ask. As the name suggests, they are youths who are usually ignored and brushed off by others, youths who “act out” as a way of coping because of the circumstances that they are placed in, youths who are termed as delinquent youths or youths-at-risk.

These youths carry different identities and labels, of which are placed upon by society’s expectations and norms of this world. Negative identities and labels that event...
