- Once I got the hang of the motion and positioning of the body, the exercises became smoother than I had originally feared. The key is to use the Trigger Point on a firm, padded floor, as opposed to the carpet in your bedroom.
- Like one reader commented, the bonus benefit is a really good core and triceps workout; no way around it.
- Aside from the IT Band, I have found that if I do a few sets of 10 - 15 on each calf and hamstring, my legs feel pretty loose.
- It seems to be much more effective following a workout and some light stretching. I’m trying to alternate some core work and stretches with sets of the roller.
- I still can’t figure out how in the world this thing works in the lower back and shoulder blade positions. These exercises just seem to be begging for a pinched nerve or herniated disc.
Again, the real proof is about four to six weeks out. The weekly mileage will run between 38-46 over this period of time and I will know for certain if the Trigger Point has helped, hindered or had no impact at all. Regardless, I am certain to be sporting some killer Tri’s for the rest of the summer! Stay tuned.......
