So i've been 'rolling' now for 3-4 weeks and just have to say: LOVE IT.
I rarely ever get sore after runs/workouts if at all anymore. My back pain has nearly vanished. Overall my body feels so much healthier and happier!
After reading about so many of the possible benefits I decided to give it a go. Best $35 I ever spent. It's like getting a massage anytime I want (and way cheaper!). I usually roll a little bit before and after my runs/workouts, then really get into it on my rest days.
If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it! If you're a roller already, what's your favorite and least favorite roll?
My favorite would have to be the hip rotators/piriformis area while my least favorite is definitely the adductors (inner thigh). Ohgawd, it hurts and I need a lot of work there...but it feels great afterwards!
