    I've got both. PVC for when I'm sore, Rumble Roller for when I'm mad at myself and deserve torture.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    Oh I wouldn't necessarily say so. The PVC does a great job; I have the RR for when there's a particularly stubborn area that won't release, or when I'm in a bit of a hurry. It just DIGS in a way a smooth roller can't.

    IT bands are particularly "stimulated" by the RR for me.

  4. I could start a new thread, but everyone who has commented in here will have good advice.

    Any site or book I could get for some good info on foam rolling. I hear powerlifters talking about it all the time and I really need to loosen up. I have done zero stretching and I know I can't continue or it will catch up harshly.

  5. Scroll to the bottom-you're looking for "DeFranco's Agile 8"

    Little foam roller info

    Great book (just got mine)-

    Becoming a Supple Leopard: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance
    http://amzn.com/1936608588

    There are also endless YouTube vids on foam rolling any specific body part you choose.

  10. Sweet, thanks for the info Swanson.

    Just made my own foam roller out of a 4" PVC pipe, pipe insulation, and duct tape. Gonna try her out tonight.

    I just use straight PVC pipe.

  12. Yeah, I was thinking about doing the same, but I read that the insulation isn't used for padding, but to grip some surfaces better. Besides, the 1/4 inch insulation foam isn't going to provide much padding lol.

    I've considered adding stripping (or something similar) to the outside to create raised surfaces. That way I can hate my life more when I use it.

    I wrapped mine with athletic tape.

  15. Used mine for the first time tonight and I'm not going to lie I underestimated it. Hurt, but could literally feel a release of tension. Looking forward to seeing what it does for me.

  16. A tennis ball against a wall does wonders as well. A lot more pressure in one spot.

  17. Started a log if any of you guys want to follow, add suggestions, or bust my balls when I F@&ck up.

  18. Link? I don't see it

    Nvmd got it

    CONTROLLED LABS products are produced in a GMP for Sport certified facility.

  19. It won't let me post links since I haven't met the minimum requirement. It's called killin' the cube: my powerlifting venture begins.
