Tight muscles can restrict proper alignment and hinder movement.  Often times the inner leg is overlooked during stretching, which can lead to further imbalance if left unaddressed. Try these foam roller moves for a muscle release:

1. Lay on stomach and drape one leg over foam roller. 

2. Starting at the knee, roll body weight forward as foam roller rolls up towards top of leg.

3. Roll back towards knee, but don't pass over knee.

4.  Remember to relax the muscle, don't resist the release.

Repeat 5-7x's
