    Massage and Supps


    I've been really busy working on my house so I haven't really looked into it.

    I'm getting a massage tomorrow night, my first massage in a long time. Anyway I'm thinking about taking something like Hemavol or Potassium Nitrate before the massage. Mainly to increase blood flow. I'm looking for opinions on if this will increase the benefits of the massage or am I nuts for thinking this.

    haha i was thinking that earlier because i'm currently taking bulbine and intimidate srt...could be dangerous, but i'm thinking hemavol over a nitrate anyway because i'm not currently taking PN anyway

    but i know the therapist, shes legit, i've been getting my massages from her for awhile now

    how about a couple glasses of wine prior to your ar*****. not only will it relax you but it may thin your flow out a little.

    I wouldn't take either. When you get a deep tissue massage your muscles need to be relaxed to get the full benefit of the massage.

    Would you suggest getting a deep tissue massage the day before a rest day because of the soreness?

    i don't remember be that sore last time, but then again i used to massages a lot more often

    I hear you on the epson salt bath. I take one at least a couple times a week. I also try to take an ice bath once a week.

    i've been interested in the ice bath thing....how do you go about it? how long do you stay in?...i'm just not sure i'll go out and buy bags of ice all that often

    i did the polar bear plunge last year in 12 degree weather and a frozen lake....i felt amazing afterwards, sort of euphoric

    Holy **** 12 degrees! I'm going to have to try that.

    If you live in an area where it gets cold enough. I bought a plastic tank that I can fit in, screwed a thermometer to the inside and I fill it up with water. You want it to be between 65-55degrees, no colder.... When it is not cold enough outside then I buy 4 (8lb)bags of ice, pour them into my bath, then fill it up with cold water. You don't want to stay in the bath longer than 15mins. After about 2 mins you go completely numb and you no longer feel the cold.

    DON'T ADD EPSON SALT TO THE ICE BATH. I did this once for foot ice bath and i almost got frost bite.... My foot was all purple and bruised...

    Also you can buy 8lb bags of ice from most McDonalds for only $1

    After talking about this I had to pick up 4bags on the way home. It's really not that bad of a price $4.00 once a week. And it does wonders for the body. Once I make it to my computer I can post this study Harvard did with ice baths and recovery

    Though, I believe it was found that an ice pack to the upper back is nearly as effective.

    When it's unilateral like that, there's usually a nerve lesion

    I usually just down a few grams of beta alanine and chug tons of water before and after. The BA tingles feel amazing during the rubdown.

    Nerve lesion? Couldn't it just be the result of a lot of adhesions?
