I have trained and competed raw in the past. Multiply is just so much more fun and technical than raw. I am in the offseason now and train raw only in the off season. Will not be back in gear until I start meet prep which will begin end of August, early September.

Cool cool.

In no way did you "bounce ideas" off of anything. There were no questions asks at all. You even decided to make up a quote (smash shit out of it) for full effect. 

 

Ive been on internet forums for far to long to not see where this line of "bounce some ideas" leads.

I'm just trying to bounce some ideas off you, seeing as u do this professionally, I'm not attacking u. I'm not sure why ur so defensive. Too many youtube comment threads? Or is it that someone who went to school for physiotherapy has the end all be all answers to all the questions, and there should be no further discussion.

Leg Tendon Injury

LeoTouchdown says

you wouldn't be smashing the ITB. only idiots still do that. 

 

You would be doing enough to get the neurological response you want and then move on to other tissues. 

 

Btu what do I know, I only do this for a living. I'll go to the school ot internet next time instead. 

 

reminded me why I stay the fuck out of these types of questions. 

 

if you enjoy rolling then roll away. At worst, MSk wise, you are wasting your time. At best, it relaxes you which helps. Have fun. 

 

 

its comic book day, why am I here lol

Hmm... Yes, I have seen the studies on how much pressure it takes to cause change in the ITB tissue. However by the same token, getting someone to "smash it really fucking hard" aka the methods you described would work just as little. In general, my thinking on these rehab methodologies is that of those at JTS that most of it is dubiously backed by scientific research, and if it feels better and you think it works, then it has done its job.

well, every bit of research on foam rolling the ITB came back with the researches laughing that any one ever thought you could do anything to a super thick taunt band with a piece of foam. 

 

the ITB is relatively hard to cut with a fucking scalpel lol. ive done it, its a beast. 

 

get ART or Deep Massage or Graston done and come back to me about why one might work and the other is child's play. Plus, the practictioner based ones are performed by someone who, well, shoudl know what they are doing... not someone who saw a cool IG post and starting lacrosse ball and rolling everything in site 

 

ive routinely had crossfitters who "mashed it with a lacrosse ball" or "rolled it every day" yet 5 minutes of targeted graston was like day and night 

 

I actually get Deep Massage done weekly, but I also find rolling my quads on a foam roller after some squats is quite relaxing for me, and that alone is worth it for me. Same with static stretching.
