Expert Answers: Upper-Body Foam Rolling
Foam rolling your upper body muscles can be tricky. Our expert’s guidance will help you make the right moves. Most muscles in your upper body can benefit from foam rolling, but they’re harder to reach and a little trickier to release than the muscles in your lower back, glutes, and legs. Done right, though, you can safely and comfortably use a foam roller to target back pain, relieve kinks in your shoulders, and soothe overworked biceps and triceps. Click here to learn more.
