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 blood circulation to your feet which rarely get any love due to the fact they’re cooped up in shoes all day. It helps work out the “kinks’ in your feet to help prevent foot injuries and may improve single leg balance.

Makes your everyday life easier because– it can help with stress,  can 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 makes this a little more intense. You can vary the amount of pressure you apply to the ball to make it more or less intense also. Do 50 rolls on each foot daily and before each training.
