Did nearly an hour of yoga and stretching tonight. At the end I felt much better so I used my foam roller to get all the knots and kinks out of my body. The term for this type of recovery is self myofascial release. Now, get your mind out of the gutter there, quit sniggering and take a look at this LINK if you participate in any form of exercise or sport. Using a foam roller will, I believe, improve your performance.
Here is a link about rollers with a suggestion of soft-core porn.
