AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 5: Piriformis Syndrome

AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 5: Piriformis Syndrome

Nicole Hart, a mom on the move in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, had a massive pain in her butt for months. “I haven’t been able to do any real speed workouts, just all easy runs,” she told us. “Foam rolling, stretching, core exercises are helping my Piriformis Syndrome, but they’re not perfect. Sitting is the worst for it!” Sounds like she was the next perfect recipient for the AMR TriggerPoint Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit.

What Piriformis Syndrome is: When one muscle—the piriformis muscle, which is your in your butt near the top of the hip joint—gets too aggressive and compresses the sciatic nerve…

Brrrrr, I shiver just thinking about the ice and cold water on my lady parts!! But while my biscuit-and-bum freeze, my upper body and noggin will remain warm thanks to midweight wool.

I emailed Adrienne after the mistake was brought to my attention to tell her that she didn’t need to do one for today, but like the true BAMR she is, she wrote two posts. Lucky us: we get a double shot today. Thanks, Adrienne!
Shot One

I’m certain that you all have been on the edges of your proverbial seats and unable to focus on anything other than which 13…
