New Contest! Free "The Stick"

RunnerDude is proud to announce that The Stick is sponsoring the newest RunnerDude's Blog Contest! If you're not familiar with The Stick, it's an awesome massage tool designed to
prevent & predict muscle injuries
dramatically improve strength, flexibility and endurance

rapidly prepare muscles for physical activity
disperse the effects of lactic acid following activity
accelerate muscle recovery

In "medical talk," The Stick converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle by performing what Dr. Travell calls stripping massage. In fact, this noted medical physician relates that, "deep stripping massage of the tender spot in the muscle was generally the treatment of choice for muscular rheumatism (myofascial trigger points) long before the turn of this century, and for fibrositis afterwards." The Stick allows people to self-perform general as well as segmental therapeutic procedures with a high degree of precision. These procedures remove the barriers to peak physical performance. It is the unassisted rolling, stretching, twisting and compressing of the muscle that diffuses barrier trigger points and converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle. In layman's terms? Short-term and long-term PAIN RELIEF!

I've used The Stick for several years along with another product (The FootWheel) made by the same company. Both have done wonders in alleviating post workout pain and muscle fatigue. For more information and a demo on how The Stick works, check out the video clip below.

kind of like my foam roller obsession!

RunnerDude said...

Hey unathleticrunner! Yep, very similar! I have a foam roller too. Both work great. With the stick you're a little better able to reach those tough to reach spots and you can control the pressure a little better, but they both have similar results. Happy Running!

Thad! I tried to enter, but hotmail is having trouble accepting e-mails, I had the same problem with another friend in Greensboro yesterday. Just FYI.

For my trouble, I think I should be automatically chosen. Also, for my aching hamstrings.... :)

Hi Lisa! Your email came through. It's a yahoo address. Anywho...I received it. I've had problems with RoadRunner emails being returned days later not delivered. Don't you just love the technology? :-)

RunnerDude said...

Hey Denise! Awesome! I'll be looking for your email.
