I’ve got a quick fix for you and it has nothing to do with stretching your hamstrings or lower back. Watch the following video and notice how much lower I’m able to reach my hands to the floor after rolling out the bottom of each foot with a lacrosse ball for 60 seconds.
This video illustrates the importance of doing some sort of self myofacial release work on your own and how it can affect your flexibility and movement patterns. I’ve told you about in previous posts and now I’ve shown you. I’m not asking you to spend your entire week with a foam roller or tennis ball. I’m just asking for a couple of minutes a day. That is only if you want to move well.
