Hey guys bit of a bump as some of you may know I have recently been to the doctor plenty of times and can not continue any further till this holiday season is over, I will be back to visit the doc in January 2.
I just had some questions I wanted to ask :
I have been researching into foam rolling because T nation told me to start from the top of the muscle and go all the way down spot by spot and build pressure and I can’t do it. To put it bluntly apparently building pressure towards the bottom of the muscle is dangerous I was rolling towards my knees and I had nerve jolts going down my legs when I was rolling which I neglected and this may have resulted in a severe injury.
The person who said that foam rolling like this is bad is “MyFoamRoller” on youtube and he seems to have good information, he says to roll over the whole muscle slowly up and down all the way, so my question is:
HOW DO I FOAM ROLL?
Should I perform myofascial release on my shoulders? is it necessary?
Should I foam roll my feet? does it do anything?
Should I perform myofascial release on my upper traps?
BY THE WAY I have internally rotated shoulders from too strong of a frontal upper body and my upper back is weak so it caves in. I don’t think foam rolling the shoulders is necessary and my instincts tell me it may be dangerous should I do it or should I not?
I also have flat feet, but I don’t know if foam rolling my feet will help at all, I remember a “specialist” I went to who recommended this.
Here is some pics btw:
