Lats SMFR Foam Roller

The lats are prone to tightness in some individuals and using the foam roll for SMFR (Self MyoFascial Release) is a method used for reducing that muscle tightness by yourself. Using proper technique is essential for rolling out the lats completely on the foam roll from origin to insertion. You may not realize it but the muscle tightness in the lats can cause movement impairment during chest pressing exercises so make sure you perform your SMFR on the lats with the foam roller if you have any symptoms of overly tight lats.
