Instead of a foam roller for my IT band soreness, I use a tennis ball. I use it the same way as the roller, but it's a little firmer. Although, I don't think a tennis ball would work to help your knees when doing push ups. emoticon

Foam rollers can really help work out soreness and lactic acid in muscles. You can get them online or from running stores like Roadrunner. We have a couple of smaller travel ones that we pack (when there's room) if we're running a race out of town.

I've considered getting one so I can do modified pushups without putting strain on my knees. I don't usually get sore if I stretch daily.I do three compound stretches that are supposed to hit everything.

Love my foam roller - not as good about using it as I should be, but really helps to work out the lactic acid and reduce soreness.

Isn't that the stuff that people use to roll on when they lay on their back or other parts of their body. Basically for helping with muscle soreness. Like giving yourself a massage. Here is a spark video on how to use a foam roller...

I thought foam rollers were what we used to curl our hair with. They were pink.
