K...don't want to fag this up...but I tried some of this nonsense...and it actually appeared to work for me on some forearm issues.

Fuck you, I was posting about Gua sha shit years ago. Those are cheap, and maybe better than my pumpkin scraper, Chinese soup spoon and jar lid...that shit is kinda crazy. The pumpkin scraper would act like the sastm tool and make noise going over adhesions.

Does that stuff really work? I'm all about pain and I'll do anything once. Just ask BD.

It's a nasty, deep tissue management technique.

I've used it on the forearms like BD for elbow pain, I've used it on my upper traps for a knot up there. I've used it on calves and quads as well.

25 minute walk with the dogs. 82F/90%RH caused me to break a sweat.

To completely get gay, I might start walking with a 22# chain around my neck which is slightly less gay than weight vests...it will cement my reputation as a weird fat guy who walks instead of runs

I probably ignored it because it seemed dumb...but the wife was using a TV remote to scrape out some forearm issues and I thought WTF. The package came direct from china all wrapped up like drugs, I was kinda sad when it wasn't drugs.

Car buffer is ok, it is just not as precise as I need in some stuff...and I can't reach other areas.

I think I'm getting sick. I feel fucking awful right now. Was going to train, but instead I thin I'm going to bed

Dragged myself out to the garage. Haven't trained in 2 weeks. Relatives visiting, kind of not been firing on a cylinders, rewriting the ladder booklet.

Bunch of 'bell shit, swings, snatches, c&jps
SSB: 245x2/3/5, x2/3/5
- yeah, time to take my own medicine
Curl and press with trip: 3 x15, just the bar
Crunches, knee pull ins
Grip

Felt pretty decent afterwards. Beat the shot out of watching tv.
