In this video, I wanted to go through a great foam roller exercise that you can do if you sit a lot.
CLICK HERE to watch the Youtube video.
I had Sonya 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.
Lie on your back and place the foam roller at your ankles. Tighten up your abdominal area, push down with your legs, tighten up your glutes, and lift your seat off of the mat.
Foam Roller Mini Bridge
Why is this a good exercise?
This exercise makes you activate the glutes. 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 often don’t get to when you sit a lot at work. We are working on having a really good alignment in the body.
If you have a foam roller and you sit a lot, give this exercise a go.
