Two weeks ago I shared a few Strength Exercises for your IT Band.
Today we’re foaming rolling it!
There are a lot of different foam rollers out there in the world. The one with ‘bumps’ is not for the faint of heart.
If you don’t have a foam roller yet here are some options:
The white ones are often a little softer than the blue or black foam rollers. (This isn’t always the case so compare them in person if you aren’t sure what you need.) The more firm, the more it’s going to push into your sensitive spots. Softer ones are also going to break down sooner, so be aware of that.
Mine is similar to this one. High density, 36 inches long. I prefer a long one because size matters…
This is a trigger point one. If you have been rollin’ for a while this is a good option.
