[QUOTE=Nik Nichols;825475]Mna I know it, it almost brings tears if you stay on it long enough. i have to time myself to make me stay on the ball, or I would stop. I tell myself. ''ok, atleasy 2 min solid , go'' and I watch the timer. But I feel so much better after, it is worth it.

Also I'm rolling on a base ball, alot harder then a tennis ball. It has gotten to the point that I dont feel the foam roller on my glutes at all. It is to soft.[/QUOTE]

I will have to look into getting a baseball then, its not so painful now for me with the tennis ball and I also got a solid cardboard tube instead of a foam roller, the foam roller is good for the legs and upper back still.

Cannot believe I trained with weights for 20 years before discovering that these things even exist.

Look inti it, the harder ball gets in deeper, any hard ball, wooder croquet balls, anything. Yea I still yse the foam roller alot, butthere are spots the ball is way better, like my shoulders front and back, glutes, hard to reach with the roller.

Thanks Patrick, funny you would say that about lunch coming back up. That is truer then you think. I was nauseous a few time which made me want to stop, but I wanted to use my time for the best I could.

lacrosse ball works great, and they are cheap ($3-5)

I need be more diligent with my rolling....I hardly ever do it.

You guys going sub 10 today?? I know both of you are pushup machines so you have a good shot at it. I probably won't get it sub 10 because my triceps tend to give out quick but I'm gunning to get all the thrusters unbroken.
