    So I've been hearing recently that massage is beneficial if you're building muscle.

    Why is this, is it true, or is it just an excuse for some rubbin' and maybe a wank at the end?

    And if it is true, how does it work?

    There is no wank in a real massage. icon_eek.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    I can attest that the right kind of massage is helpful if you have certain injuries such as trigger points or knots from scar tissue in muscles and connective tissue.

    All serious sportsmen and teams have massage as part of their regimen. That should tell you something about its usefulness.

    Hmm. I suppose it could be both, if the indulgence is a reward for working out.

    I try to get one every couple of weeks because my masseur knows my body and can tell if my development seems balanced... and it just feels great.

    And, okay, sometimes we fool around afterwards, too. I can't help it. He's hung like... well - that's off topic.
