- Place the Rollga foam roller horizontally under your lower back, just above your tailbone.
- Cross your arms over your chest or place your hands behind your head without interlocking your fingers.
- Engage your core muscles and slowly roll your upper body up toward your knees, exhaling as you crunch.
- Inhale as you lower your upper body back down to the starting position.
- Perform 12-15 reps for a complete set.
2. Rollga Planks (Forearm release as well as core engagement)
- Start in a plank position with your forearms resting on the Rollga foam roller, which should be perpendicular to your body.
