Foam Roll: Latissimus Dorsi
Body Part: Mid Back
Equipment: Foam Roller
Step 1: Lay down with the foam roller under your arm pit. Using your arms for support, increase the amount of pressure on the muscle until you feel a manageable level of tenderness.
Step 2: Then, roll the length of the muscle to about mid rib area at about 1 inch per second looking for the most tender area.
Step 3: Once you've found the most tender area, hold the position and pressure there for the recommended time. Maintain posture throughout.
Step 4: Repeat on the other side. Avoid continuous movement, letting the head fall forward or holding your breath.
