Believe it or not, your glutes can cause a lot of the pain in your body! Tight glutes are a real problem, causing a lot of lower back pain. If you are Foam Rolling, you’re able to release these trigger points, stopping the pain and aiding in movement. For those with sciatica or other lower-back pain, this is a must-have.
- Start in a sitting position, with one leg positioned over the other. You’ll be sitting on top of the roller. Make sure they are at the top of the glutes, just below your lower back. For stability, you should lean on your working leg slightly.
- Now start to roll, in a downward movement. It should only be a few inches. Try not to fall off of your roller!.
TIP: To work every part of your glutes, keep your body weight centred and lean your hips in accordance with the area you’re working.
