Hey guys, just tossing it out there for those of you that may not know.
Get a Tiger Tail or The Stick or something similar.
I recently got the Tiger Tail after reading something on another board concering prehab / rehab and foam rolling and such.
That is an amazon link to the one I bought. Been using it only a few short days now, but already it is worth it's weight in gold. I normally foam roll with a pretty dense (hard) piece of foam, but I still couldn't get my kinks out (IT band in particular). Now I have a lot of injuries related to 2 car accidents and the sedintary lfiestyle those led to, but I have to say, I am super impressed. The feeling after rolling everything out is much the same as I would feel after a ROLFing / SOMA session. Just broken down, but euphoric. I got the Tiger Tail over The Stick only because the tail is supposed to be able to deliver more pressure while The Stick is more user friendly and able to adapt to the size of the body part rolling over. I appreciate the Tiger Tail and it's ability to apply a lot of strentgh into the roll, but I can see now why The Stick being able to adapt might be a good thing too, especially on the legs.
Anyway this is starting to sound like a commercial, but I am just excited and wanted to share. They are both cheap, just get one and make it a part of your daily training. I know I am from here on out.
