SANTA CLARA, California, November 15. Loose and limber muscles are key to swimming performances. When muscles are tight, as they tend to get — and stay that way – during intense training periods, range of motion and technique suffer.
G. John Mullen has the solution, and you might already have the tool to make it happen! Myofascial treatment with a mobility stick may help decrease soreness and pain.
Directions: Have a partner roll the area of tenderness slowly with a mobility stick. When the most sensitive spot is found, slowly apply pressure, do not roll aggressively. Perform for one to three minutes.
