  1. Mechanoreceptors.. GTOS overriding your muscle spindles results in autogenic inhibition relaxing adhesions and knots followed by stretching realigning the fibers. SMR is a no brainer when it comes to corrective exercise.

  2. Rolling sticks are so awesome for quick recovery because every time i finished a sprinting race during the track season i used to roll out and felt fresh and ready to go again! Once i finished a 400m that completely killed me, what sucked was that i could hardly move and had another race in a few minutes, i got my roller and rolled out, i felt great!! Like god i could do the 400 all over again lol, so yeah, im pretty sure their good for moments like those.

  3. I have chronic exertional compartment syndrome, so I have to foam roll my calves before doing any sort of cardio, otherwise my fascia isn't loose enough to stretch to compensate for increased blood-flow. If I don't I can only run for about 1 minute at a time before the pain becomes unbearable and my calves start tingling from the pressure.

  4. I know that temporarily increasing hamstring ROM by stretching or rolling just before squatting may hinder overall performance, but couldn't it also improve form in someone who's squats suffer from poor flexibility?

    Personally, my abysmal squat form seems to improve when I stretch or roll before I squat. I can keep my back straighter and stronger and reduce butt wink a fair amount. I don't quite know what it does to my intensity, but I hope it increases safety.

  5. would've been cool if you included some cellulite facts as that's as well what they're promoting with foam rollers! 🙂

  6. I've asked this a million times… do most lifters experience some kind of long term joint pain ?????????????

  7. would you make a video about how to fix rounded shoulder? it will help some of us 🙂 thank you for your amazing content!

  8. Best put, foam rolling won't help you squat more weight but it'll help you hit greater depth. This is a leg foam rolling example

  9. Can you do a video on Nausea after working out and how to avoid/maintain it? I struggle with it a lot 🙁

  10. Can you make a video about intense traning with 6 – 12 minutes and normal training with an hour which is better ?
