15-Min Lower Body Foam Roller Workout

15-Min Lower Body Foam Roller Workout

Foam Roller Routine

I have found people fall into two camps when it comes to foam rolling.

Camp A, know about foam rolling and do it as regularly as they can.

Camp B, have heard of foam rolling, but they just aren’t quite sure why they need to do it.

What is foam rolling?

Foam rolling is a form of myofascial release, which is just a fancy word for releasing muscle tightness and trigger points, or “knots”, in the muscles.

It’s been used for years by professional athletes and therapists, and now can be found in gyms and studios throughout.

Rolling is likened to the “poor person’s” massage and a regular romp with your roller will help prevent injuries, improve your spinal alignment and posture, and increase your flexibility and mobility.

Tips When Rolling

  • Keep your rolling slow and controlled.
  • Move in multiple directions, don’t just roll up and down and down and up.
  • Add side-to-side movements, cross-friction and flexing and extending of the joint being rolled.
  • Roll for 30-60 seconds an area.
  • Use your arms and legs to help move your body and roll the roller.
  • Rolling a muscle may be a little painful, however, you don’t want to be screaming in pain. Rolling too hard on the muscles will activate the muscle spindles causing more muscle tightness. Not our goal with rolling.
  • Don’t roll right on a joint, keep ti soft tissue only.
  • Do not roll along the spine – again, avoid bone, hit flesh 🙂

15-Minute Booty Lift Workout

OMG, this workout was kind of a disaster.

From a sore mouth (from dental surgery the week before), to feeling like I’m talking like I have a mouthful of marbles in my mouth throughout the whole workout, to the mic falling off the camera during filming, to my hard drive getting what Apple said is similar to us humans getting a “cold”after I uploaded the video.

(And this “cold” my computer caught meant that I needed to give it some oil-of-oregano-and-echinacea love in the form of resetting my hard drive to factory settings and then migrating my data, piece-by-piece [cue Kelly Clarkson] back onto it.)

Whew.

Getting this workout to you was harder than filming the damn thing.

However, sadly, all that BS was as good for my posterior as the actual workout was.

Sigh.

Why can’t running from problem to problem be as good as an actual workout?!?

40-Minute Lower Body Workout

40-Minute Lower Body Workout

While editing this workout I realized that in parts of it I sound like an ass. Sorry about that.

Comments like “I love my lower body workouts” sounded effing self-righteous and self-promoting. I make fun of other people who talk like that, so I thought this was only fitting I make fun of myself.

And it’s not actually what I said either.

But, alas my mic kinda sucks.

What I did say was “I love me some lower body workouts”, meaning I love lower body workouts. Period.

They don’t have to be mine.

Actually, in all honesty I prefer Lyndsey’s lower body workouts (she’s an instructor at The Studio), cause she kicks my ass better than I can kick my own.

However, in my defence my mouth was killing me.

You see I had a wisdom tooth that was infected and impacted (meaning it hadn’t pushed through the gum line yet), and not 12 hours after recording this workout I was at the dentist getting that little sucker pulled out.

PJ-Wren-Impacted-Wisdom-ToothThat’s me and my chipmunk face the next day after filming after surgery.

35-Minute Low Impact Lower Body and Core Workout

It is way more fun to workout with a friend. Don’t you agree?

Yeah, most of us tend to workout alone (due to schedules, busy lives etc). But… when we can workout with a buddy it just makes the workout that much better.

We’ve got someone to sweat with, laugh with, commiserate with.

Someone who can take our mind’s off what we are doing.

Steve-Dotto-PJ-Wren

And, today’s workout I have myself a workout buddy.

My co-pilot for today’s workout is Steve Dotto (www.dottotech.com).

Steve’s a good friend of mine, a member of The Studio, and one of my mentors who helps direct me, and my business, in the right direction.

I had fun filming this workout (more than Steve I think), and I hope you have fun too!

I’m gonna start this blog off with two words… “I’m sorry”.

I’m sorry for the sore tush you are gonna have during, and after, this workout.

I’m sorry for the sweat and discomfort I will cause you. And, I’m sorry for any swear words I may drop during the workout.

However, with that said I am also gonna end this blog with two words… “You’re welcome”.

You’re welcome for giving you a booty that won’t quit.

You’re welcome for giving you the best looking legs and rear end, both in clothes and out of.

And, you’re welcome for the compliments you are bound to receive for said legs and rear end.
