Exercise #1: Roll with your Hands

Best Quad Exercises using a Massage Ball: Roll with your Hands

This is a great starter exercise for using a massage ball to work on the quads as you can vary the pressure you use. Sit on a chair and place the ball on the front of your left thigh. Use your hands to increase pressure through the ball and start to move the ball around. Look for tight areas on the thigh and then work around those. As we’ve said you can adjust the pressure that you put on the ball, starting with light pressure then increasing the pressure depending on your comfort.

Aim: 1-2 minutes then try on the other side.

Exercise #2: Squash Against the Wall

We cover the ball with a towel for this one, so it doesn’t mark the wall. Position the ball on the side of your thigh then squash it against the wall. Roll the ball up and down, side to side, or around in a circle. Place the ball at different points on the thigh to find the tight spots.

Aim: 1-2 minutes then try on the other side.

Exercise #3: Squash Against the Wall with Leg Movement

Again, cover the ball with a towel so you won’t mark the wall. As with exercise number 2 above, position the ball on the side of your thigh then squash the ball against the wall. This time you’re keeping the ball still and bending and straightening your knee, which will put the quads on a stretch.

Options:

  • Time: 1-2 minutes
  • Counting: 2-3 x 10 repetitions

Try the other side.
