Rolling, rolling, rolling

Day 22 – Last week, after BODY STRONG & BODY ROCK, I talked about the benefits of stretching. I am more convinced than ever that if I had stretched, like I should all the years, I would’ve been injured less and felt better after every workout.  Now I’m learning to do good warm-up stretches before I start working out.

Today, I did another stretching session at home and it really gave me relief all over–especially in my back. My favorite kind of stretching is done with a foam roller. It’s great for finding knotty muscles before gym time and very good for dissipating muscle lactic acid afterward.

I’m hopeful that I’m setting myself up for a better experience tomorrow. We’ll see.
