Dan talked about a piece of equipment his trainer had him use to help with cramps in calf muscles. I'd never heard of the foam roller.....now I can't wait to get one...
You Tube has some demos and exercises and, of course, a ton of videos to show how to use this (some not so good). My calves and IT Band will be thanking me!
I also read this somewhere...You need to be moving very slow like 1 inch pre second searching for the tender spots once you found it hold it for about 20-30 seconds or once the pain decreases to 50-60%. When you use the foam roller fast like you are doing it can cause muscle spasms promoting more knots to develop.
DAN - any idea what size and/or density to get???
