*Do it yourself! Every Friday we do a roundup of great posts, videos, or other resources around a theme that help people to turn their bodies from cranky to happy.*

This DIY Friday I’ll point you all to an article I put up on Breaking Muscle this week where I get into the difference between Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls (my self care tool of choice), and the two other most prevalent tools; the lacrosse ball and the foam roller. I get asked about this all the time, so here you go! Complete with a research study and everything… All that information lives here.

    Great review! I personally haven’t used the YTU Balls yet, but they’re on my Christmas List. I have however, used various Lacrosse Balls with various densities and in different configurations (individually and taped together), with great success. I’m also interested to hear your opinion on advanced foam rollers such as the Rumble Roller.
