      Hi Jesse,

       

      imho, the single best suggestion I see in all your links is the use of the foam roller/tennis ball to release myofascial tissue.

       

      It requires very little energy and doing so after exercise is a tremendous counter to my running, yoga, and swimming.

       

      Not only does it feel great, but I am able to recover much more quickly.

      Requiring only a tennis ball, I can do this any time I need a break.

       

      Thank you so much for suggesting this.
