Yoga Exercise Tips: Lying Foam Roller Leg Curls

To increase strength and stability in the glutes, hamstrings, and hip while improving on core stabilization and strength.

1st Progression: Lying on your back; place the foam roller under your calves but slightly above the ankles. Lift the hips in the air and squeeze the glutes; maintain this position throughout the range of the motion; curl your legs towards your glutes and hold for 1-2 seconds and slowly return to starting position. Do for a desired number of reps.

2nd Progression: Maintain the hips up in the air; lift 1 leg up in line with the torso and curl the other leg towards the glutes. Return and repeat for a desired number of reps then switch legs.

The round 3 Foot Foam Roller is traditionally used for stretching or massaging tight and resisted muscles to improve mobility, flexibility, strength, and performance. But the foam roller can also be a helpful tool in your training, like improving on balance/stability, core stabilization, and advanced balance/stability training with strength training. Our Objective is to learn and apply these exercises with your training.
