Foam roller for abs and core - PICTURE - Women's Health & Fitness

Exercise four: Quadriceps

Start: Lie face down with the roller positioned directly under your thighs. Bend your elbows so that your forearms are flat on the floor to support your weight – your feet should be suspended above the floor as shown. You can also stretch your arms out in front of you if this provides more stability.  

Roll: Keeping your abs drawn in and core muscles tight, use your arms to gently roll your body forward and back to move the roller up and down from your hips to just above your knees.

Tip: Isolate your quads and roll one leg at a time.
