A foam roller is great for self-myofascial release massaging, but did it ever occur to you that you can use it for a complete workout?

This short workout will tone your butt and thighs. By using a foam roller, you’ll engage more muscles in the glutes and hamstring. You will feel the burn!

If you don’t have a foam roller, you can also use a stability ball. Just place your feet on top of the ball. You can be in shoes or without. 

  • Do each exercise for 30 seconds back to back without any rest.
  • Rest for 60 seconds after the whole set. 
  • Repeat one more round.
