Introduction: The $1 Foam Roller

Foam Rollers are being used a lot these days in Taichi, Yoga and other types of exercise to really loosen joints and muscles in a very effective manner. However, simple as they are, those chunks of round foam can run upwards of $50-$100, or even more in my end of the world. SO I decided to make my own, using a chunk of PVC pipe from the local hardware store, an old torn (thus unused) yoga mat I had lying around and a roll of everyone's favorite tape, duct tape!

    Great idea! What diameter of PVC did you use? What is the total diameter of the finished product? How does it compare to a commercial version?
