Through the years I have seen post about using a roller stick like "The Stick" to massage your leg muscles. I am not a racer and I never thought that a stick roller would be of any help.
Well I am taking yoga classes and the instructor brought in a large 6" diameter roller and demonstrated how to use it. My wife decides to get me one of these rollers and finds a 3 in 1 roller system which contained a stick roller.
I take this stick roller out and start rolling it along my leg and I would hit sore spots that I didn't even know that I had. I rolled my legs for at least an hour for the first massage and my legs felt great. I found two hot spots or sore spots about 4 inches below my knee on the back and outside of both of my legs that are still sore so the stick does not cure everything immediately. I am hoping that I can get these spots to lose their soreness in the next few days.
If you have never rolled your legs, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. I don't see any reason why you could not just use a rolling pin like what is used for cooking. If you want to see some demonstrations of how to use the stick, then go to youtube and take a look at the stick roller videos.
If you use a stick or give one a try give me your comments on how you like it.
