Hamstrings Rolling With A Foam Roller

Hamstrings Rolling With A Foam Roller

Area Targeted: Hamstrings


Roller to Body Position: Make a letter "T" with your body and the foam roller - the roller should be perpendicular to your body


Set up/Starting Position: Sit on the floor and position the roller right above your knees. Keep your hands flat on the floor behind you, for support. Extend your legs straight out in front of you.


Roll: Roll your body towards your feet until the roller is just below your butt. Now reverse, and slowly roll the other direction to your starting position. Repeat.


Points To Remember:

1. Use your arms and shoulders to help you roll
2. As you roll, rotate your legs out and in from the hips (this will insure that you target all areas of the hamstrings)
