After rounds of pushups, planks, and ab workouts, treat yourself to a relaxing back massage via foam roller.
Not only will the roller knead those tight upper back muscles, but you’ll be getting a good quad and glutes stretch as your legs do the real work.
This will also get your muscles ready for tomorrow’s workout.
Duration: Do it from 30 seconds to 1 minute
- Lie on your back, placing the foam roller underneath your shoulder blades.
- Prop yourself up with your feet, raising your knees so your glutes are off the floor.
- Start rolling your way down. Focus and hold on the tight knots for at least 10 seconds.
Tomorrow: Pretend you’re Superman.
