Bespoke Treatments: Self Myofascial Release Techniques, Part 3

Your glutes are powerful muscles. And when they’re tight, they can definitely be a pain in the butt. One way of loosening up this tight tissue is through foam rolling. Follow these steps from the experts at Bespoke Treatments to find relief.

  1. To begin, sit on the foam roller with one leg extended.
  2. Bend the other leg and place the foot flat on the floor for leverage and support.
  3. Place your hands on the floor behind you for support.
  4. Gently roll from the top of your glute (close your belt line) until you’ve moved the foam roller down several inches.
  5. When you find sore spots, spend extra time resting on those spots.
  6. Make sure you breathe deeply and exhale slowly as you roll.
  7. Don’t forget to switch legs.

This one may be uncomfortable. The more uncomfortable you feel, the more the area needs to be released.
