What will you need?

You will need a hockey ball or a foam roller. Ensure that you are wearing comfortable clothing.

How to perform this exercise?

Sit with your right glute on a hockey ball. Alternatively you could use a foam roller. Now bend your left knee and cross your right leg over the left. Keep your hands resting on the floor behind you for support.

Now gently roll the muscle over the ball. Then relax the muscle and pause on areas of tightness.

You can thereafter roll on the foam roller for approximately two or so minutes, before switching sides.
