Foam Roller, I Choose You!

So I just spent like an hour with my new best friend, the foam roller.

In the past, I’ve mostly just rolled my calves. Tonight I rolled errrrrrrrthang, then stretched, did shoulder stands and “air splits,” and then rolled errrrrrrrthang again. Even my back. Even my sides. Especially those weird hypertrophic glutei medii that are endemic to male ballet peeps. I even managed to roll my pyriformes (which really, really needed it). Okay, I didn’t think of how to roll my upper arms until just now, so I’ll have to do those in the morning. And my neck is out of scope for this roller, I think.

OMG, you guys, why haven’t I been doing this all along? Every part of my body feels better (and my foam roller only cost me $5!). Parts of me that I didn’t even know were sore feel better. It is like having a whole new body.

C’est tout. À bientôt, mes amis!
