Video: IT Band and Foam Rolling

5 to 7 years ago I had significant IT band problems. I did a stretch of simply raising and extending my arm towards the other side of my body.

Recently I have not had IT band issues, but my wife has had some as she began a half marathon training program. She is finding that ice after running and simply becoming a stronger runner as well as cross training is helping her.

I have never used a Foam Roller but know they are quite popular. Have you used a foam roller? What techniques are working well for you.

The reality is I do very little stretching, core strengthening, or flexibility exercises. How about you?
