The glutes are located in the bottom, supporting various functions such as running and hip rotation. Therefore, it’s important to give these muscles attention both before and after exercise or even if you’ve been sitting at a desk all day!
If not, tightness in the glute muscles can be felt in other parts of the body such as the hips, back, legs and pelvis. Because the glute muscles are so large, they usually require extra pressure to get the full effects of the self-myofascial release produced from foam rolling.
For this reason, many find it useful to use a peanut massage ball to target trigger points while sitting on the roller for added pressure.
You can target one glute by crossing a leg over the top of the other, rolling back and forth over the glute. In our handy video guide, we show you the right way to use a vibrating foam roller ball while safely supporting yourself using your arms.
