In this video, I wanted to go through a great foam roller exercise that you can do if you sit a lot.
Great Foam Rolling Exercise If You Sit A Lot
CLICK HERE to watch the Youtube video.
I get Sonya to demonstrate the Foam Roller Mini Bridge. You do not need to have a full foam roller. You can use a one foot foam roller for this exercise.
Sonya lies on her back and she puts the foam roller at her ankles. She tightens up her abdominal area, pushes down with her legs, tightens up her glutes, and lifts her seat off to the mat.
Foam Roller Mini Bridge
Why is this a good exercise?
This exercise makes you activate the glutes if you are sitting a lot. When you are activating the glutes, you are stretching out the front of the hips, which is good. You are also working out your core, which you oftentimes don’t get too when you sit a lot at work. We are working on having a really good alignment in the body.
If you got a foam roller and you sit a lot, give this exercise a go. It doesn’t matter if you have one foot or a 3 foot foam roller.
