6 Foam Rolling Exercises to Improve Lower Body Mobility

Meet Andrew Beattie

Australia's best youth dance roller skater

Andrew has had an extremely successful year, winning gold at both the Australia and Oceania Championships.

We recently spent some time with Andrew working on his lower body mobility.

In dance roller skating, Andrew is judged by his symmetry and posture while he skates.

Some of the manoeuvres are quite difficult and require a large range of movement. By improving his flexibility, Andrew can perform with better fluidity, which ultimately affects his score. This is why it is vitally important for him to have good mobility.
