A few words of caution before we get started: foam rolling should not be used on body parts that you have recently suffered an injury to. You should consult your physician about foam rolling if you have circulatory problems or chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Please also take note that while foam rolling is a cheap and easy way to improve tissue quality, results will not appear overnight. You will have to work on your fascia daily for a week or more in order to notice improvement. With foam rolling you’re targeting your soft-tissue (. you should not be rolling your joints or other bony structures).
Natalia Trukhina has always been open about using anabolic steroids, as well. She has admitted to taking 150 – 200 mg of Primobolan or proprionate before competitions, and 20 mg of oxandrolone on training days. She claims she was at one point tempted to also try growth hormones, insulin and peptides, but ultimately decided they were not for her. Natalia says she performs well and manages to keep in great shape even without doping, but claims steroids give professional powerlifters an edge during competitions. Luckily for Trukhina, the sports she is currently involved in do not require drug tests.
