#1

heated blanket.

heat it up to max
warm up a bodypart really hot
it becomes super pliable.

you can fold it into a square or a rectangle and lay on it to work your back

or you can wrap it around your lower body like a mummy and sit down in it for a while, then you can work on your hips with a baseball and foam roller.

you could wrap it around one leg, or even drape it like a cloak around your shoulder girdle.

after heating up the area, smash the hell out of it with soft tissue work and stretching.

this is fucking amazing. I stole the idea from my chiropractor. I'm sure tons of you guys have tried or done it but it's a great tool.


#2

baseball in a sock is great to throw behind your back and lean against a wall.

two baseballs taped together is amazing for the spinal erectors.

The most effective way to do all this shit is completely naked.


#3

Excellent idea with the blanket, thanks!


#4

shoulder blade right on a medicine ball on the floor and roll around. Stronger than most massage therapist hands, pinches less than a baseball.

You can take the heated blanket to the next level and use icy hot on it too.


#5

Putting some rice in a long sock and microwaving it is also great for soreness.
