The foam roll for the upper back is an essential mobility exercise for the thoracic spine (upper back). Using the grid foam roller in a supine position, it targets the erector spinal, trapezius, and rhomboid muscles – helping to improve mobility of these important postural muscles. The foam roll for the upper back is a great warm up or cool down exercise for everybody, especially those who sit down a lot during work, or have stiffness in their upper back.
Training tip: if you find any tender points in the muscles, hang out for a few seconds, breathing slowly through the nose. Then continue rolling.
