SMR Rectus Femoris Foam Roll Single Leg

The SMR Rectus Femoris Foam Roll Single Leg exercise is essential to any endurance athletes flexibility program.

  • Place a foam roll just above the right knee and elbows just below the shoulders in a plank position. 
  • To increase compression, place left leg on the ground. 
  • To decrease compression, roll both legs at the same time. 
  • Keep the core engaged and slowly roll from just above the knee to the top of the leg just above the hip joint.
  • Hold any tender spots for 30-90 seconds (try to relax and breathe deeply). 
  • Repeat with left leg.
