Inspired by some other members, I’ve decided that I’m going to start doing total-body soft tissue work daily. I’m sick of popping my neck every 2 minutes and I’m just fucking tired of all this nagging-ass joint pain.
So I’m doing something about it.
My past efforts have been spotty, but the nagging injuries and shitty ROM are getting to the point where I can’t stand it anymore, and it’s really holding my training back. I’m making some good progress, but I KNOW I could be making at least 25% better gains if my ROM and tissue quality were better.
Just for some starting info:
I can barely get to a 60 degree angle above horizontal when raising my arms up from my waist, my hip ROM is even worse, my sacrum pops all the time and…well I basically all around suck ass when it comes to ROM/flexibility and joint issues.
In addition to the soft tissue work I’ll be doing static stretching afterwards and more dynamic stretches directly before training, mostly the one from MM.
Well, I’m off to go do some foam rolling and trigger point work. I’ll post again tonight when I finish.
And if anyone wants to post advice or ideas in here, awesome. I’m willing to do anything to get rid of this pain.
