Roll out, roll out... pain be gone!
Stretching but still tense? Can't reach to massage that knot in your back? Here's where the foam roller comes in very handy.

Foam rollers can cost around $45 for a very basic one, but Matt uses a piece of storm water pipe from the local hardware store ($15!) Images original source:Robertson Training Systems
