Where Do I Put This Damn Lacrosse Ball?

November 05, 2015

So you got your lacrosse ball ready, and you're dead set on using it to roll out all of those gunky areas no matter how uncomfortable you know it's going to feel. You lay the ball on the ground, lie back on it, and then start to squirm around like a fish out of water. 

As that feel good pain starts to build, you ask yourself: "Am I doing this right?". Just aimlessly rolling on a lacrosse ball, or any other type of roller/mobility tool is not enough.

The fine folks at ROMWOD have put together an easy to use guide that shows where on your body exactly you should be using your lacrosse ball to improve range of motion and mobility for particular lifts and movements.
