Foam Roller IT (iliotibial Band) Stretch
1- Lie on your right side with the roller positioned beneath the outside of your thigh, just below your hip. Propping yourself up on the right forearm, with your left hand on your hip, cross your left leg over the right, placing your left foot flat on the floor for support.
2- Using your right forearm, gently push your body over the roller so that the outside of your right thigh slides up and down the roller, as far as your knee. Slide back the opposite way to your hip. Repeat for at least 30 seconds, then swap sides.
- This exercise loosens your iliotibial band (ITB), the band of muscular tissue on the outside of your upper leg, and helps general mobility in your glutes and hip muscles.
