Similar to training tools such as balance boards and discs, foam rollers can also be used for a variety of different balance drills and exercises. Take advantage of the roller’s cylindrical shape (and it’s ability to move with you) and use it for exercises like this rolling lunge:
Move Targets: Abdominals, gluteus and quadriceps
Step 1: In a split stance, place your back foot on top of the roller.
Step 2: Bend your front knee and extend your back leg out straight as you lower into a lunge, sliding your shin over top of the roller.
Step 3: Slowly rise up out of the lunge, drawing the roller in towards you as you stand.
