I know this seems like a strange topic for my blog but, heroin use among kids is way up. Are prescription painkillers part of the problem? Dr. Mercola thinks so and, so do I.
I owe my friend Anderson Bourell for this one. Take a look at the image below. It’s a sock in a tennis ball. My friend Anderson had mentioned keeping a ball in my backpack and doing some self massage in the seat while traveling. This worked out awesome and I would recommend every try it. Just put a tennis ball in your backpack and stick it under a glute or hamstring. I know you are thinking “why the sock”? I one upped Anderson because my mid back was sore and I needed a way to position the ball.
If you coach, get every player a tennis ball and a sock for the next road trip and thank Anderson.
Thanks to Dr Mercola. Keep trying to make small dietary changes. Pay a little more and get better products.
I had to post this even though it is ridiculously self serving. It is so cool to know that you are really making a difference in someones life and in the lives of their clients..
