Weightlifters are on another level of mobility though.

Big guy at the end looks pretty limber

So in contrary to p0rn, you want to watch that clip from the beginning and not directly skip to the middle and the end drool.gif
Impressive mobility though.

Seeing how I won't get anywhere with diet or training in the time frame until Xmas (we baked 9 different types of xmas cookies last weekend, the gf and me got really into food photography since a few weeks, etc.) I hopped on PSMF too for weekdays. I think it's actually really easy to do, not harder than regular low carb... curious what the results will be. I plan to do it this week and next week till Wednesday night, then we're off to the Alsace.

If I never post again I have probably lost all lean body mass I had and am unable to type.

Sometimes I like watching the beginnings : /

But seriously, do foam rollers/lacrosse balls really help for day to day lifting? Or you guys only use if something is bothering you

I've given up on my foam roller. It's often painful without producing any noticeable benefit. I get a massage every now and then and it seems to do the trick for me.

I try to lacrosse ball my glutes and stretch hip flexors daily. This helps combat my daily desk job and getting tight. Even if only psychological, I like the boost.

I have never used the foam roll but from a year or so back to today seems to be all the rage at the gym. One of these days I might try it.

I do several self tests that indicate whether I need to correct something. If it's something that can be corrected at least partially by soft tissue manipulation using a lax ball, roller, theracane etc, then I use those.

Rolling etc is about what you do in the 22hrs you're not in the gym

Read this and immediately realized I forgot my lacrosse ball at the gym today. At least they're easily replaceable.

I can't say scientifically, but because I also practice martial arts I need to maintain high flexibility, especially in the legs, while still building strength and speed… so I find they really help. I stretch daily, use the rollers to relieve knots and static Qi and generally use them to warm up and down.

^^^Flexibility is my weak point though it has improved significantly over the past three years that I've been doing yoga. I'm pleased with my strength right now, though I know it could be better. The stretching that's part of yoga has helped a lot, too. My typical daily morning routine is to go to yoga for an hour, then from there directly to the gym for 30-50 minutes.

I can do this. Then again I have been doing yoga 3 days a week for 3ish years too.

It would like to be able to do it, but my hamstring mobility is lacking a lot. I've found hamstring and overhead mobility the toughest to improve.

Then again my mobility is good enough to squat, bench and deadlift with solid form so I don't really need to do anything about it.
