Less is more.
We have known this of all massage and manual therapy in last 5-10 years.
Short bouts of light soft tissue work can be just as effective as smashing yourself with a steel rod and causing bruising.
There seemed to be a fad of, ‘how hard is your roller’ or even, ‘I’m bruised from massage’. This is ACTUALLY crazy. You are causing capillary damage doing this that is not required. A light, gentle foam roll will get you a decrease in soreness the next day. There is no need for steel, hard stuff or bruises.
I would say, just test it out. Even if it feels like your roller isn’t hurting you anymore just give it 30secs to 2min on a muscle and jump up and squat. I bet it will be easier and you will feel free in movement and have less pain from your previous workout.
Please, please, please stop bragging, advising and spruiking unnecessarily hard rolling or hard rolling tools.
