This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is a ball foot massage, which is one of my favorites.

You should do this because–  It helps improve your circulation as your feet rarely get any exercise due to the fact they’re cooped up in shoes all day.

Makes your everyday life easier because– it can help with stress, lower blood pressure and when combined with feet strengthening/ stretching exercises, can reduce foot and ankle injuries.

Form tips – Sitting makes the exercise easier for balance purposes and standing make this a little more intense. You can vary the amount of pressure you apply to the ball to make more or less intense also. Do 50 rolls on each foot daily and before each training.
