Some of the muscle groups even have higher levels of pressure. Just keep in mind, foam roller may hurt so good but it really shouldn't cause major discomfort. Roll accordingly.
Once I got my terms figured out I started rolling and focused on the glute muscles and I was shocked to feel the difference in the impact of rolling as demonstrated versus how I was. I also liked that the demos were the length of suggested rolling so you could roll along with it. I no longer cared about sound as reading the prompts is enough to set you up for success. And really, what are they going to say? Roll, roll, roll?
I started with the rolls suggested for the hip muscles and then ventured into the Piriformis roll. The first thing that stood out is with this technique I am turning the foam roller 45 degrees from how I normally placed it. Ooo.....that felt good and to the point. Then I tried the roll for the Hip External Rotators, which are very close to your Piriformis by the way, and oowie! And an aha! moment! So, it is this muscle that is peskier! What a great thing to learn and I know this is the case since on my left side I had to "regress" to the main level. I think since I have been foam rolling for so long, even if on and off, I am able to roll most muscles at the progressive level.
Do you have any questions for me?
