Foam Rollers are the best when it comes to relieving muscle tension. Who would have thought that they would become so versatile! At the gym we use them for everything from push-ups, to floor pikes and now this great ab exercise! Take a peak and add it to routine for some added fun!
1. Lie face up on a full-length, round foam roller with your head and hips supported on the roller. Place your hands on the floor with your palms down. Start with your knees bent above your hips at a 90-degree angle. Focus on keeping your abdominal muscles pulled in toward your spine. Straighten your right leg out in front of you. Pause for two seconds.
2. Now switch legs by bending your right leg and extending your left leg in front of you. Pause for two seconds, making sure your midsection stays flat. Continue alternating sides until you have done 30 reps (15 on each leg) (source).
This exercise tackles so many muscles at once, we would be insane not to try it and use it in our routines!
