Pilates on the Foam Roller
This video is great for creative exercise inspiration or for following along and getting a challenging stability workout in. The foam roller provides an excellent stability challenge and identifies any muscular imbalances in the core (you'll fall off if you have imbalances!) I use this routine as a warm up and with clients that have significant muscle development differences from left to right in the back and abdominals (especially scoliosis clients). Put your foam roller to good use while you're not rolling your fascia & enjoy the workout!
