    Massage after workout?

    So I'm going back to college and they have a REALLY nice weight room and gym so I will be hoping to lose all the weight again that I gained from being back home for 4 months. I'm getting to thinking that after I lift I will be doing studying and relaxing for the rest of the day/night. So I was thinking of getting a massage chair type thing. Does massage after working out really help your muscles?

    ...plus they feel awesome.

    But yeah, I can imagine that it would be good especially after working out, because it would help to increase nutrient-giving blood flow around your muscles.

    Yea I most likely will buy one of those massage pads to put in my computer chair so that after I weight lift I can write my paper and feel relaxed.

    Massage is CRUCIAL.

    It astounds me how pople will shell out hunderes for suppliment but not a cent on soft tissue work.

    I am a huge fan of deep deeeeep massage and forced streching, today's masage with my coach gave me atleast another 3" of depth in my squat once I got my hips loosened off.

    **** that stupid massage chair, get a proper DEEP TISSUE REMDIAL MASSAGE or a tennis ball and a foam roller.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    I got a foam roller for christmas, well worth it. lovely on the quads, hams, adductors/abbductors after squatting.

    As a massage isnt really possible for me the roller is a good second best.
