    I've seen Defranco's stuff recommended by a number of people, but never really got round to checking it out. I'll put it on my list!

    Yeah thanks frodo. I realised I've been spelling it wrong in my searches.

    Bloody dyslexia.

    Not a problem!

    There's an upper body version as well:

    Awesome. Need to start hitting this stuff up, I'm starting to get slight aches in my hips, a bad mix of heavy squatting and zero mobility/flexibility work is starting to show.


    I'll just make sure I stay well clear of kayacks too!

    When I do mobility work regularly I find it helps with a lot of niggling pains I have, particularly my bad back.

    Probably a wise move! :D

    Well as my next fight draws ever nearer and road work and conditioning increases All of my lower body joints are agony. until training last night when my hamstring tweaked.
    Thankfully at my training camp we have a number of specialists on hand, and after an assessment apparently my tendons are crazy short and inflexible.

    I've noticed it recently but just not thought about it.
    They recon unless I sort it out soon I'm at risk of a serious hamstring tear.

    GREAT.

    I recommend getting a regular deep tissue massage and buying a foam roller. Both of these help with niggling day to day issues! I feel your hamstring pain though - mine are horribly tight.

    On the shoulder front, I now have strapping all across my back, courteousy of my physio. It seems to be helping though!

    Ah good news, how long is it on for?
    I've a PNF stretch I was told to do and it's helping already.
    Desperately want a foam roller, I'm using tennis balls in a sock at the min.
    Do you think it makes a difference getting a cheap naff one or an expensive on?

    At least a week I think. I have to go and have it changed on Monday and then see the physio properly again on Friday

    I'd say get a decent one. I think the blue ones are harder than the white ones and the black ones are harder than the blue ones.

    A black one.

    That is a log surely. Hardcore Frodo, hardcore.

    Me, I have the white one and it is the best bit of training equipment I have.

    Oh, I'm not that hardcore, I have a blue one. Actually that's only because I didn't know they did black ones when I got mine (it was a birthday present a few years ago)!

    I'm wondering if it's a good idea to do any lifting tonight with my sore(presumed injured) right lat? Monday is usually Squat and Deadlifts

    Not a good idea. Particularly with those exercises.

    I stuck with it but adjusted my sets, did less weight. The hanging leg raises were okay surprisingly but didn't try any chin ups, upped my incline row/push ups sets

    I was about to suggest PNF stretches. I recently did a course on PNF stretching and am loving it in a big way, trouble is to do it 'properly' you really do need a partner.

    For 'self massage' I have a tennis ball, two tennis balls taped together (the dip between the balls is where my spine goes ;) ), a mini football (pumped really hard) and a white foam roller.

    Depending on what I'm massaging dictates the tool I use (also how tender I'm feeling). The football is fantastic for the piriformis in the butt, tight piri is directly linked to knee pain.

    I take a strange pleasure in telling people I finish my tabata session with a 'ball massage'! :D
