Rolling Out the Latissimus Dorsi / Teres Mj
Place the roller on the ground or your yoga mat and lie on your side below your arm pit. Roll back and forth releasing your latissimus dorsi muscle for up to 2-3 minutes doing 2 sets. Stretching this area with the 1-arm prayer stretch after rolling it out is great for stiff shoulders where the latissimus dorsi muscle can pull down the scapula contributing to shoulder impingement syndrome. Rock climbers, volleyball players, weight lifters and swimmers would benefit greatly with rolling out this muscle!
