Can You Foam Roll Your Chest?

I love my foam roller.  Even as a runner, it has helped me most with my back (maybe I’m not using it correctly with my legs, but honestly it’s awesome with my back).  Let’s hope it can work wonders for your entire body.

Remember that  side stitch I was dealing with this morning? Welp, I tested it out this afternoon with an easy one miler.  It was definitely manageable (I didn’t push the speed too much), but it still hurt.  Which means I likely very minorly pulled or stretched something something too far doing yoga and core work.  Upps.

For the time being I will be switching back and forth between foam rolling my chest, and sitting with a heating pad.

That’s a mix of broccoli salad, orzo, falafel, lemon herb chicken and some parmesan pasta.  You know that’s all going on top of my greens and enjoyed in one big bowl.  And I can’t wait 🙂  I’ve done good about sticking to good simple and healthy foods today to help ease my stomach, so hopefully this continues that trend!

And of course, I’ll be enjoying dinner with JP.  You know.  Juan Pablo.

Miss you, Zach 🙂

Question of the Night:  Have you ever foam rolled your chest?  Did it help?  Where is the weirdest place you have foam rolled?
