Eric Cressey wrote a second excellent article on foam rolling that complimented the first one that he wrote. He basically said that foam rolling, just like weight lifting, requires progression. He suggested that you use a tennis ball or a lacrosse ball. I currently use both to great advantage.
You could also try rolling one leg at a time so that you can provide more pressure. I would recommend that you search for the article by Eric Cressey and get yourself a lacrosse ball.
Thanks for your suggestion. I’ll look into a tennis/lacrosse ball. Do you do both of these for your entire body? Do you do them in addition to a foam roller?
I already roll one leg at a time, and every position I do I already manipulate it to put the most pressure on the desired bodypart to be rolled.
Tennis Ball, then
Golf ball, then
So your saying use a tennis ball for my back, and then a golf ball for my back? All alongside a foam roller? Sorry, you weren’t very clear.
