    The cult of mobility says I should foam roll every part of my body because another mobility issue could be causing my plantar fasciitis.

    I did buy a foot massage ball. It's less likely to damage anything in my house than a golf ball.

    Tfw a layman diagnoses himself then ignores the advice of his betters.

    Okay, I'll foam roll everything if it makes you and K Starr happy.

    K Starr?

    If you want to talk about how the rest of your body could be influencing your foot pain and whether or not "foam rolling everything" will have any effect, too bad, that's beyond your ability.

    Go ahead and get an actual dx then go to a PT. If it is actually plantar fasciitis you'll end up with exactly as I recommended.

    Or don't and continue in pain.

    Folks and their Google

    Alright I may get shit on for this but, are there any frozen meals that are good for gains and/or cutting? Being a full time student and working full time it's hard enough to find time to lift; and cooking is even harder. Plus I kinda suck at cooking.. so any recs?

    For cutting... If you can find the brand "Eating Well," a few of their meals have very good macros. Spicy Asian Chicken is 24g protein, 39g carb, and only 6g fat. They have a few meals at or near 20g and at or under 10g fat. AFAIK that's about as good as you're going to get from frozen meals.

    Healthy Choice has some good options, too.

    If you want more protein and aren't worried about price, get some precooked chicken (they have it at Trader Joe's) and throw that in with it.

    :cheers:

    My PF is improving to where it's not super painful in the morning. Been massaging and stretching every day, stopped wearing the Nike Frees, and stopped going barefoot in the house.

    @Van Veen @MGoCrimson thanks guys, I actually picked up one of those eating well ones to try them out cause they have decent macros. MGoCrimson, is that like an accelerated crockpot or something, never seen one before

    Cash me in 990s all the time. How's your hips van? Got good external and internal roation in them? You got to keep a healthy arch in your feet and the hips mainly dictate that.

    After the better part of 2 years out of the gym I've been consistent now for 2 months.
    TFW squatting 225 for sets of 10 is "hard" :(

    @DeBo it's an electronic pressure cooker so yea, basically a crockpot that cooks things much more quickly.

    You can throw whatever in there e.g. a roast, chicken, beans etc toss in some spices or sauces and come back from class to a giant batch of food. A shoulder will be fall-apart tender in about 2 hours.
