The foam roller is a fantastic piece of kit that should be used in any workout programme. This exercise improves core stability and abdominal strength without putting pressure on the lower back.
Lay flat on the foam roller with it running down your spine. Your head should be supported. Place your feet flat on the floor with your knees bent at 90 degrees. Contract your core muscles by abdominally hollowing, pulling up the pelvic floor, and tensing.
Now, lift the left leg in its bent position towards the chest, then extend the leg out straight, keeping the back flat on the foam roller. Slowly return to the start position. Repeat on the right leg.
Reps 10 or 12 each leg
