    Try touching your toes and measure how far you can reach, then do the above exercise and try to touch your toes again. Our physio at work uses this technique with some of the more inflexible clients, and the effect is really impressive.

    I like this approach to training. I wonder, would massaging and slapping the muscles be a good way to prepare them for this more intense form of scar destruction?

    I actually heard Clark's Foam and Rubber didn't have the goods when it came to home-made foam rollers. Maybe my coach wasn't looking hard enough!

    Santeria Claus - holy ****, you heard a deep-tissue tearing noise? Sounds like something ripped, not in a good way. Nodes and trigger points don't make noises, at least not when released.
