This is one of the more important areas to foam roll. Because of most peoples lifestyles this muscle tends to be one of the tightest.
- Sit on top of the foam roll, positioned on the back of the hip. Cross one foot to the opposite knee.
- Draw abs in.
- Lean into the hip of the crossed leg. Slowly roll on the outside hip area to find the most tender spot.
- Once identified, hold tender spot until the discomfort is reduced by at least 75 percent.
- Progress to the next tender spot and hold again.
- Repeat on opposite leg.
