Repeat for each spot along your back that feels tight. Typically Magnussen does four levels along his spine.
• Lie on a mat, with hands behind your head, and place the foam roller just below shoulder blades. • Push up with your core until there's a straight line from knees to shoulders. • Push back with heels, until the foam roller is at a position where you feel tightness in your spine. • Drop bum to the floor and lean back so elbows touch the mat. • Hold, nice and tight, for one-two seconds. • Repeat, as required. DO THIS TIP BEFORE AND AFTER A REGULAR EXERCISE ROUTINE. IT WILL OPEN UP THE VERTEBRAE AND ALLOW A BETTER RANGE OF MOTION. FOAM ROLLERS ARE AVAILABLE FROM MOST SPORTS OR YOGA STORES.
