Core exercises = Get on the ground and do crunches, sit-ups, and planks….Sound familiar?
While these exercises can be great, if this is all you are doing to strengthen your core, you are neglecting vital muscle fibers in your mid-section that are critical for posture, strength, balance, and coordination. By simply adding a foam roller to your core routine, you can achieve that beach body you are striving for AND at the same time train the little muscle fibers in your abs and back that will bring balance, functional strength, and control. These magic fibers are called proprioceptors (AKA muscle spindles) and are too often the neglected brother of the glamour muscles.read more

April 26th, 2007 – Spokane, WA
We open the door to our extended stay hotel and see a bottle of cheap sparkling wine and some chocolate covered strawberries. We laughed. True, my wife and I had just gotten married a few days earlier. She thought it would be funny to call and tell the hotel we were on our honeymoon. In a way it was, but Spokane was not our first choice for our after-nuptial excursion. We were here for another reason altogether.
I had just finished my 3rd year in the NFL, and I was recovering from my 3rd surgery in 5 years. This time it was my spine. I had herniated two lumbar discs playing for the Saints. I first felt a twinge of low-back pain coming out of training camp and fought through it as long as I could. I made it 2.5 months.
