This is also called Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness (DOMS). Have you ever worked out so hard that the next day you can't even sit on the toilet? You're practically holding on to the walls just to sit down? That's basically DOMS! It's when a couple of days pass by after your workout that you actually feel the effects of the workout. Anywho, that's what I'm feeling today on my quads. So, instead of getting a massage, I'll be massaging myself:
This is my recovery roll. You start off like this.... then you do this:
You put it up-right on your quad muscle and you roll it up and down. It could also be used here:
That's my calf muscle. I really like the recovery roll because it's small and you could take it everwhere. I also have the foam roller:
But the foam roller is not as handy. What I also like about the recovery roll is the fact that you don't have to get on the floor. You could just sit down and roll.... Massaging your legs after a run is important in order to remove toxins from your body and to get rid of lactic acid build-up. Kapish?
How often do you get a massage?
