roll with it baby

yes. i’m a Winwood fan….great song btw and always worth a listen…

but (sadly) we’ll save my nerdy music tastes for another day.

today…i’m talking foam rolling.

my gym has these bad boys and i had no real knowledge of how i was supposed to be using them…all i knew was that they felt darn good on sore muscles after a long run.

awkwardly sitting in various positions and rolling back and forth on a large tube in a public place…hmmm. probably not something my mother would be particularly proud of me doing 😉

i decided to do a little research. (that thing called the internet is great for that) and while i know foam rolling certainly isn’t a new phenomenon, i found this great infographic that summarizes it all nicely. had to share.
