Recovery and mobility are very important to maintaining a high level of performance in the gym to get the most out of each workout. Foam rolling is an easy technique you can do on your own to increase blood flow to muscles and alleviate any pain you might be feeling.

I covered foam rolling for lower body a while back (Foam Roller Techniques To Help Optimize Recovery) so I thought it’d be a good idea to focus on the upper half. Here are eight techniques for upper back, upper lats/rear delts, triceps, chest, biceps, and shoulders.

I do foam roll at least once a day for around 5-10 minutes, usually in front of the TV. 😁
