Hey! So here is some good info on foam rolling. When I first did it, it was not very fun (it was a bit uncomfortable, but the more you do it, the better it gets).I found these two articles that give some basic info.
Here's one from Prevention Magazine:
http://www.prevention.com/fitness/streng
th-training/foam-roller-strengthen-mus
cles-and-relieve-pain

Here's one from Sisterhood of the Shrinking Pants. http://shrinkingjeans.net/2014/04/the-basi
cs-of-foam-rolling/

My trainer has me foam roll my quads, inner thighs, IT band, back/T-spine and lats. I also use a lacrosse or tennis ball to roll my trapezoid muscles against the wall. It helps loosen them up a bit.

I feel like it's definitely helped me, personally. I feel like it loosens me up a bit, makes me a bit more flexible and is a good start to my strength training workouts. You can do foam rolling anytime though. I know a bunch of people who do it before bed because it helps relieve tension. Anyhow, just figured I'd send you the info in case you are interested.

I'll check out the plank challenge!

Thanks for the app suggestion. I looked it up, and it's highly rated, but my phone started acting up before I could download it. It's about time for a new Android. I'll keep it on my list, though!
