Out with the old, in with the new
Mr. Foam Roller, my spectacularly tight IT bands have dominated you.
It is time for you to be retired to that great foam roller graveyard in the
recycling bin sky.
In your place, I introduce…
Mr. PVC Pipe. You will be dominating my spectacularly tight IT bands.
This beauty is $6 of pure, unadorned pain-causing tight IT band relief.
And despite the warnings so delicately imprinted on his side, the adorable old guy at Home Depot claims that both he and I could jump on him for hours without him crushing.
After my 15 miles last night (which was both a joy and torture after a long day at the office, I might add), I spent about 8 seconds on each IT band with Mr. PVC Pipe. I would have rolled longer but this type of torture requires a break-in period.
And today, everything is sore EXCEPT for my IT bands.
$6 well spent, my friends.
