So, I've been trying to get my left hamstring to let go for weeks.  The foam roller wasn't doing it. The stick wasn't doing it. So I decided to try a uniquely Italian device, as a last ditch preparation for the Rome Marathon.  The bocce ball.  Who knew??  A new addition to the training arsenal!


  1. Nice! I foam roll but much prefer that exquisite pain from rolling on a tennis ball for the really bad knots. haven't tried the bocce ball. I have a metal boules (petanque) set but rolling on one of those would be too hard core even for me!

  2. The petanque balls are too small. :-)
