Like you mentioned, if I'd sort of cut it off at the pass that afternoon I think I could have avoided much of the agony. Ultimately though, prevention is definitely the key.

This mobility kit looks awesome. I just recently opened my eyes to the absolute necessity of mobility exercises and could use some basic equipment. It not only seems necessary to avoid injuries, but also to make gains and continue progressing. I finally realized that it's not only strength limitations that hold me back from new pr's, but a lack of mobility.

Thanks also for the exercise suggestions, this was a very helpful response!
Glad to be of help. Good luck with your training!
