Tight ITB bands are many runners’ bugbear and can lead to lower back pain during or after your run. The Foam roller: ITB release exercise gently irons out sore points you might not even know you had until you try. Make sure you keep your neck straight as you carry this move out.
- Lie on your side, with the foam roller at the top of
- your thigh.
- Roll the foam roller down towards your knee.
- Feel where the ITB is the tightest, and roll forwards and backwards over that point.
- Return to the start position.
Never roll over your knee.
