So you hit the gym the other day after an extended layoff, and now your body feels like someone tossed you out a window. You're too sore to move, and going to the gym seems much less appealing than staying in bed and watching SportsCenter 30 times in a row. Unfortunately, lying around all day won't help your body recover. Getting back into the gym—and going back consistently—is much more important (and impressive) than going hard once a week.
Don't be embarrassed. Check out some exercises you can do with a foam roller that will help alleviate your soreness and get you back in the gym in no time. Because really, one can only bear Stuart Scott for so long.
