Foam Roller Movement #1
Lower Back pain? Roll those hamstrings!
Looser hamstrings won’t just help to cure back pain. They will also improve your overall performance in the gym.
What to do:
1.1 Sit on a foam roller with your legs outstretched, and support yourself by placing your hands on the floor behind you. Position yourself so the foam roller is directly under your hamstrings (not directly behind your knee).
1.2 Slowly roll forwards and back from the base of your glutes (Bottom of your bum) to the bend in your knee for 30 seconds. Try it with your feet turned out and then with your feet turned in to work your hammies from all angles. You can increase the pressure by stacking one leg on top of the other or by using a hard roller (the orange one’s).
