Got any niggly aches in your bod right now? If you’ve got a tennis ball lying around the house, use it on these four common trigger points, as shown by our resident Pilates expert, Steph Prem. “This sequence is great for a pre- or post-workout tool or anytime you need relief after a long day at work,” Steph tells us.

“Myofascial trigger points, also known as trigger points, are described as irritable/congested spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle,” says Steph. “The tennis ball or trigger-point ball is great for targeted relief to manage minor aches and pains. It’s easy to apply pressure directly to the point where discomfort is felt by using the floor, wall or any hard surface to stabilise the ball. For best results, build pressure and then roll the ball up and down, or in circles to release knots. Always remember to stay on the muscle, NEVER the bone. Use the breath to release the triggers.”
