To foam roll the lat muscles:
- Start by resting on your side, the arm on the bottom extended out, but not rigid; keep it relaxed. Place the roller just above the bottom your ribs, midway up your torso.
- Roll upwards. You should stop around your underarms.
TIPS: Shoulder blade tightness is a common problem. So, it is likely that you’ll come across a sore or tight spot during this. When that happens, keep breathing and continue working for about a minute. You’ll need to adjust your angles to roll other parts of this muscle group, similar to the legs.
