Comedy Catalyst Today Announced The Release Of Its Scripted Series ‘ROOMIEZ’ About German Standup Comedian Ulrich Unsuccessfully Trying To Find A Roommate On Craigslist.

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2014

Comedy Catalyst, a leading webportal for original comedic webseries, announced today the world wide release of its scripted series Roomiez, and its first episode entitled “Dog F*ckers Anonymous.” It premieres today, April 17th, on Youtube and Funny or Die.

“Roomiez” is a web series about German comedian and former Groundling Ulrich (Chase Ulrich) trying to find a roommate through Craigslist, but coming up short in every episode.

Said Ulrich, “If you go on Craigslist to find a roomie, you have run out of other options, and the people looking for a place are typically as desperate as you are. Now, you can’t discriminate against anyone for anything, so you have to come up with creative ways to tell them it’s not a match. I’ve lifted my shirt a couple of times, asking them: ‘do you think that is a lot of hair?’ They usually leave very quickly, if not, I follow up with ‘do you want to touch it?’”

In the first episode, a recovering animal sex addict, played by Casey O’Keefe, wants to rent the room. “I laughed out loud when I first read the part; it was so far out there, but still relatable…when I first moved to LA and looked for a roommate, I encountered all sorts of different types…everyone has their weird ticks and tendencies,” O’Keefe said when asked why she took the part. “As an actress, it’s just so much fun to make other people laugh and put fun, silly things out there. I love sketch comedy and it’s a blast to push the envelope.

Adds Ulrich, “This is the internet; it’s no holds barred.” When asked how he came up with an episode called ‘Dog F*ckers Anonymous’, said Ulrich: “That’s a loaded question, but harmless answer. The story of this episode is inspired by Edward Albee’s famous play The Goat (2002), where the main character fell in love with a goat.”

This 18 episode series, of which a new episode will be released each Tuesday, begins April 15th on ComedyCatalyst.com. The series was produced by Keppler Entertainment and is distributed by Comedy Catalyst.

Myofascial Roller Massage Reduces Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, Announced Performance Health


Akron, OH (PRWEB) April 17, 2014

A recently published study in The International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy demonstrated the effectiveness of an inexpensive, easy-to-use massage tool on reducing hamstring muscle soreness after high intensity exercise. The study, conducted at the National Research Centre for the Working Environment in Copenhagen, Denmark, investigated the acute effect of massage with the TheraBand Roller Massager+ on delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).

DOMS, often observed in athletes, is a common consequence of unaccustomed exercise or overtraining especially with the inclusion of extensive eccentric contractions. The presence of DOMS inhibits muscle activity or motor performance for up to several days following the initiating event. One of the major symptoms of DOMS is muscle pain and stiffness, which can cause inhibition of force production of the involved muscle. Treatments such as ice, stretching, exercise and massage have been recommended to reduce DOMS, but the research remains unclear on how to best to manage DOMS.

Myofascial rolling has become popular in fitness for both warm-up and recovery, but published research remains scarce. This study involved 22 healthy untrained men performing high volume stiff-legged dead lifts to induce DOMS of both hamstrings.

In addition to sports performance, soreness, pain and stiffness of muscles and joints can interfere with work and activities of daily living for millions of individuals, stated Lars L. Andersen, PhD, Professor with the National Research Centre for the Working Environment. Because of this, we elected to use non-athletes in this study so that the results would be meaningful and transferable to a larger population base.

Approximately forty-eight hours after performing the DOMS-inducing exercise, the 22 participants were asked to rate the level of their hamstring muscle soreness. Hamstring flexibility and hip flexion range of motion (ROM) and pressure pain threshold (PPT) were also recorded. Each participant was subsequently randomly assigned to either a roller massage treatment group or a control group. The TheraBand Roller Massager group received a roller massage for 10 minutes on one hamstring with moderate pressure at one to two seconds per stroke. The other hamstring remained untreated.

Study participants that received the roller massage treatment had significantly less soreness and tenderness compared to the control group. There was no significant difference in flexibility between groups.

Our research team concluded that the massage administered with a TheraBand Roller Massager+ had a soreness reducing effect to the affected hamstring, continued Dr Andersen. Interestingly, there was also a significant reduction in pain in the non-treated hamstring, suggesting a central nervous system or cross over effect of the Roller Massager+ on DOMS pain.

About the Academy

The TheraBand Academy was formed to scientifically document the benefits of resistance exercise and pain relief, guide the company in its development of new products and exercise programs, and to promote therapeutic exercise and pain management through professional and consumer education. The Academy web site is a unique resource that connects healthcare professionals and consumers to the ever growing body of knowledge on exercise. Registration is free and provides access to the largest database of rehab exercises, protocols, research and education in the world.
