Exercise three: IT band

Start: Lie on your side, resting the outside of your thigh on the roller as shown. Prop yourself up on your free foot and elbow or with your hand gently resting on your top leg  – depending how much pressure you want to apply.

Roll: Using your weight to put pressure on the outside of your thigh, roll from your hip to just above your knee.

Tip: Go slowly and don’t rush through this one as it’s often the area that can be the most painful  – hold on a spot until you feel it gently release.
