The ITB (Iliotibial band) is a ligament that runs from your pelvis to your shin and it’s quite common for runners (or anyone who exercises) to have a tight ITB. To release the tension of the ITB, lie on your side and slide the roller under your hip. You can perform this exercise with the upper leg bent (as pictured here) or with both legs straight and crossed at the ankles. With your hands helping you to balance, gently and slowly roll from your hip to your knee. Repeat this a few times and then switch to the other side.
