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 then lay back on the roller so that it is positioned underneath your shoulder blades. Keep your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Now place your hands behind year head (don't pull), and lift your butt


Roll: Slowly roll your head away from your feet until the roller is under the middle of your back. Now reverse, and slowly roll the other direction to your starting position. Repeat.


Points To Remember:

1. Keep your abs tight throughout the movement
2. Keep your head and neck in line with your spine (Don't tilt it forward)
