    If I did my quads/IT band with a PVC pipe I think I'd die.

    I actually like using a PVC pipe or softball instead of the foam. It hurts alot more, but it just feels better when i'm done.

    Some parts are no issue. I hardly feel it doing my hams, front of the quads hurt a little bit. Sides...suck.
    Calves hurt like a motherfucker too.
    I just did PVC followed by lacrosse ball on my calves, OMG I'm fucked.
