Ultimate Foam Roller Exercises

The Foam Roller isn’t just for Self Myofacial Release (self massage) anymore! Carla Zeitlin demonstrates how to use the Foam Roller as a core-training tool to inspire a full-body toning, strengthening and stretching workout that will get you into the best shape of your life!

Zeitlin’s foam roller workout strengthens, stretches and defines all the major muscle groups of your body, especially your core musculature! Look and feel stronger, improve your posture, prevent and cure back pains and injuries, lose weight, and improve your cardiovascular health! You’ll feel like there’s nothing you can’t do!

  • Perform between 8-12 repetitions of all the exercises.

  • Go for the burn!

  • Keep core engaged, neck long, shoulders back and relaxed, breathe, and aim to move with control, fluidity and stability.

  • Pregnant? No problem! The only exercises to modify if you are 24 weeks or more pregnant, are the exercises Carla performs on her back, in the “supine” position. You may either do these supine exercises propped up on pillows (with head high, legs low), or take frequent breaks sitting up or rolling onto your left side, if you feel dizzy, short of breath or nauseous. Be sure to get your doctor’s approval too, before beginning any new exercise programs :)
