I am a believer now! Recently converted with my 4 inch PVC pipe.

In case anyone is interested, here is what I currently do to ward away pain/tightness and honestly, my legs have NEVER felt younger. When I am done with a workout, my legs feel like they did when I was a teenager, no kidding:

10 leg curls

15 bridges with legs on bench

15 reverse hypers BW

20 front to back leg swings

20 side to side leg swings

Roll IT Band, Vastus Lateralis

1 minute jump rope on mats

5 shoulder dislocations, 5 military press to 5 regular squats with just a light bar

5 shoulder dislocations, 5 military press to 5 split squats each leg with just a light bar

5 BW lateral squats each leg

5 BW reverse crossover lunges each leg

1 minute jump rope on mats


20-30 reps light DB Swings

Roll IT Band and other muscles if I have the time

Stretches: (mixing in 1 minute ab planks for 2-4 reps)
Quad stretch with knee on pad and foot on bench

Standing quad

Kneeling Groin (or seated if done without knee pain)

Calf/Hamstring/Lower back runners stretch

Floor Hamstring
