Here is a great alternative to a traditional arm and leg lift movement. Begin the exercise by lying flat on the floor, on your back. Hold the roller straight above your head so that it is touching the floor. Squeeze your abs, your thighs and your glutes as you raise your legs and arms at the same time. Bring the roller up and over your head as your arms and legs come closer together. Recline back to the starting position and repeat.

Here is an alternative to the full body roll up with a twist. Begin the exercise by lying down on the floor. Hold a foam roller straight above your head and make sure that your arms are parallel to the ground. Your legs should be glued to the ground as you squeeze your abs and roll up. As you roll up bring your arms overhead and then out in front of you as you twist to one side. Twist back to the center and recline to the starting position. Now repeat the movement on the opposite side.

Try the v-sit rotation using a foam roller. Start the exercise by sitting on the floor with your legs stretched out on each side. Keep your back straight, your abs tight and your shoulders back. Hold the roller up, parallel to the ground. Keep your arms straight out in front of you. Rotate to the right and then come back to the center. Then rotate to the left. Repeat this pattern for 2 sets of 12 repetitions (6 on each side).
