The goal of this exercise is to stretch the fascia lata which is a tightening muscle. The side of the leg is worked, an area that tends to be overloaded and often receives little attention.

The most effective is to give yourself a self-massage on a roller or foam roller. An alternative is a long float used in swimming pools.

  • Lie on the floor on your side.
  • Using your forearm closest to the ground, which rests at a right angle to your body (shoulder to wrist), raise your trunk and hips.
  • Place the roller under your hip and let the weight of your legs fall on it.
  • Roll on the roller as if massaging yourself.
