Overview

Quadriceps self-myofascial release (SMR) is a self-administered soft-tissue treatment for the lower body, usually using a foam roller, lacrosse ball, or other 'trigger point' massage tool. By applying pressure strategically to the quad muscles of the upper leg, some people find they can cause this often painful and tight muscle group to relax or 'release.' Quadriceps SMR is often accompanied by SMR on the calf, glute, or hip muscles, or by stretches that target the calves or quads.

Variations

Variations of fitness exercises refer to different ways of performing a specific exercise or movement to target various muscle groups, intensities, or goals. These variations aim to challenge the body differently, prevent plateaus, and cater to individuals with varying fitness levels.

Alternatives

These alternative exercises can be used as substitutes when the original exercise is unavailable or challenging to perform due to various reasons such as equipment limitations, injuries, or personal preferences.
