day 1035 – all knotted

image

everything on my legs are all knotted up and a bruised and tender knee from taking an ego damaging fall. this is what happens when i don’t exercise for three weeks, then go all out at the gym and go crazy kicking bags without stretching. i guess that’s when proper warm up and cool downs come into play. i had to skip gym today because all i can do is roll them out on the deathly foam roller

day 521 – another roller

image

giving up my foam roller because i have no need for it anymore when i have this baby. upgrading from the soft stuff to the hard stuff was a necessary change because it simply wasn’t serving me well anymore. now i can get my stuff done consistently and rely on this to work its magic and stay somewhat unknotted. this pvc pipe should last me a long while before my body gets immune to this and then i’d probably have to look at metal spikes of some sort

day 492 – stop drop selfie

image

my interpretation of a constipation face or just a normal reaction from the pain of rolling out knots. i figured the most appropriate response to the stop drop selfie challenge is to do a stop drop and roll selfie, literally. thought this was a pretty good way to end the week by taking awkward pictures of myself foam rolling on the ground after a friday night class. the truth is, i do this quite often

day 453 – foam roller

image

extended time away from my regular gym routine really doesn’t sit well with my body. my legs are sore to the bone after leg day it hurts to do any kind of movement including walking and standing. rolling out the tightness is brutal but it must be done and all i can think of is it hurts so good. i guess this is what i must pay for when i don’t keep up with my gyming

day 216 – rolling it out

image

feeling the muscle tightness and knots on my legs of what is the after effect of yesterday’s skiing adventures. on the floor rolling it out like there’s no tomorrow, first with the foam roller then with the tennis ball. going up the mountain a few more times would solve the problem of muscle tightness
