Foam roller: Glute releaseTightness through the muscles in your bottom can lead to lower back pain when you increase your distance or run for long periods of time. Try theĀ Foam roller: Glute release to keep your posterior in a positive place!


  • Sit on the foam roller.
  • Place your right foot above
  • your left knee.
  • Place your hands behind
  • you on the floor.
  • Roll forwards and backwards over the whole muscle.

Be safe

If this is too painful, take more of your body weight onto your arms.
