-The Tiger Tail-
Ah…it’s Saturday. It’s a gorgeous day outside, and i’m a bit under the weather. 😦 I NEVER get sick, so i’m thinking this must be allergies or something. I’m sneezing, a bit stopped up, my throat is sore, and I just feel “blah.”
Anyhow, i’m planning on being productively lazy today. What does that mean? Well, i’m going to tackle a few projects while relaxing on the couch, just like i’m doing right now. I’m also spending some quality time with my Tiger Tail, as my right gastroc seems to have become one huge knot.
What the heck is a Tiger Tail, you ask? Well, it’s an awesome little device that, as the Perform Better guys put it, “helps relieve sore, tight, cramping, fatigued and stiff muscles by helping restore muscular balance.” It resembles a skinny rolling pin, and like the foam roller, it helps “release” trigger points and promote healthy tissues.
I think of the foam roller as the “cannon,” while the Tiger Tail is the “rifle.” The foam roller lets you cover large areas, and the Tiger Tail lets you get in and work a bit harder on areas such as the traps/neck, low back, and calves.
Yes, the Tiger Tail is the same kinda thing as the “Stick,” although I have never used the latter. I opted for the Tiger Tail because living in LSU country has somewhat brainwashed me into thinking “tiger everything!” lol 🙂
