    I use the foam roller after every ride, that way I'm nice and warm and the muscles need a stretch! Since I've been using it, it not only cured problems I had at the time, but I haven't had any since. I used to get a different leg/knee problem every few weeks. I may try one of the other ones in this thread now that mine is getting a bit soft.

    Tony Horten (P90X) has gotten into using the foam roller. P90X2 uses it extensively in warm up and cool downs. There's also a recovery and mobility workout (60 minutes) that's really quite good.

    I'm not a big fan of p90x. Haven't seen x2, but if it's like teh first one it's way too long on isolation exercises for my taste. I thought the core synergistics one was pretty good, but other than that i didn't like them.

    Just a regular cheap one, or is he going for a trigger point? I swear that one is friggin' gold.

    My high density red foam roller (the basic spongy type material) has gotten all soft and mushy. Recommendations for a new and/or better one????

    EDR (remember him?) turned me onto these before he split this place. After 18 months of pretty solid use, it's still going strong.

    The rumble roller looks like something used to coerce a confession

    I know this is a bit off topic, this being THE Foam Roller Thread and all, but do any of you use those sticks? I like my roller for my IT, quads and hammys, but I feel the stick would work better on the calves, and more specific spots.

    I had one and sold it. I didn't think it worked that well and was kinda hard to maneuver.

    I love the grid (used it last night and tonight), and when I want to induce tears, I break out the Trigger Point roller.

    I like the stick for a few spots i have a hard time getting w/ the foam roller. Inner thighs come to mind.
    ^Yes, I know that's a hanging curve.

    I use the grid a lot, pre and post workout but also use the other rollers (footballer and quadballer) for more pinpointed stretching/massaging. When I was at Interbike I talked to the TP people and told them about issues I was having with forefoot pain. They recommended this exercise
    with the footballer
    to stretch the soleus and it's helped a lot. However I also have very poor dorsiflexion. As for the inner thigh somebody mentioned...I saw a picture where they were using the quadballer for that (I can't find it now) although I don't personally do that exercise and will now give it a try, I hit virtually every other muscle in the legs, glutes, and lower back.

    I recently got this gizmo from Amazon.


    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002C8LMAK

    I'm still getting used to it, but it's great for working out individual muscles / vertebrae, slowly, one at a time.

    No, I'm old enough to predate such silly things. I usually grow some sort of facial hair over the winter. I kept a long scraggly goatee last year until it started to warm up.

    Face warmer, got it.

    Earlier this week a woman in my office asked me if I grew my beard for Movember. I gave her a blank stare and said, "No." I don't think she believed me.
