This is counter to what I have heard previously, but so far I must say that it really seems to help "loosen" me up for my mobility drills.

Just some food for thought.
Thanks Andy, I have thought about it but the majority of my workouts are at the gym and they have no foam rollers to speak of, and the few times I have worked out at home I just didn't think about it. Next time I work out at home I'll give it a try, I think "quick/light" might be the key here, after reading about Ronnie A's experience doing deep tissue foam rolling before a workout was eye-opening.
