Enhance Overhead Mobility with this Foam Roller Exercise

Posted by Bruce Carrington on

You can use the Amazon Basics High-Density Foam roller for this exercise. The muscle being activated in this exercise is the serratus anterior which is involved in the performance of many overhead movements such as throwing a baseball or pressing a barbell overhead. 

Check out more details in the video below!

The muscle assists with rotating the scapula upwards and tilting it backwards which is important for optimal overhead function. It also protracts the scapula during arm function and therefore is commonly known as the “boxer’s muscle”.
