      Thanks, that's very useful. I got a roller recently - it works wonders! Can't believe it took me this long, given all the knots, etc I've suffered through in the past!

              I have a love-hate relationship with my foam roller. I love how I feel when I'm done...but people ask me if I'm okay because of the faces I make while I'm rolling!

              I'm glad it was useful! Trust me, I never heard of foam rolling before college. I was a sprinter in high school and a firefighter in the Air Force...my calves are shot and will still take years to work all the knots out!

                I don't use mine as much as I should, so thanks for the encouragement and the routine.

                Re: the faces made when foam rolling.

                I was at the gym and had brought my kids along. We were just about done, rolling things out a bit and my son walked by. My coach said not to let them see my pain face, cause it freaks them out. I had to look away.

                  No problem! I've had kids walk by me and laugh, saying "Look at the funny faces!" I guess it's better than scaring them...

                        First, I have that same love hate relationship with my roller.

                        Second, you must be wrecked if the Rumble Roller causes you pain. I tried one out at a Tough Mudder and felt next to nothing, it needs a solid core.
                        I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

                          Really? Are you sure it was the actual Rumble Roller you tried? Mine is just as firm as a closed-cell roller and does have a solid core. I've used smooth rollers before and they weren't as aggressive as the Rumble. It's also the only thing that gets deep enough to get my soleus, where I have 3 really stubborn adhesions. I am pretty wrecked though.

                            Yeah, it was at the Rogue tent, they had the black one. There isn't a foam roller out there that does anything for me, they just aren't dense enough. I like the idea of the nubs but they need to make it denser (personal opinion). I use a Travel Roller, essentially pvc pipe wrapped in yoga mat. My wife hates the TR, it's too dense for her.

                            Keep in mind this is coming from a 280lb man with a healthy amount of muscle mass, I tend to squish lots of things when I sit/lay on them.

                              Ah, yeah that does make a difference. I weigh 160 soaking wet (whether I like it or not, it seems), plus the fact that I'm pretty jacked up...but I would like to see a denser one come out. I plan on trying out The Grid soon to see if that'll be something good to switch to once I take care of a lot of my issues with the RR.
