Tension in your middle/upper back from sitting too much?

Try this with a foam roller for better thoracic mobility!

• Begin by sitting on the ground.

• Position a foam roller on your middle back
(Just below the shoulder blades).

• Lay back with your arms cupping your head.

• Try keeping your chin tucked whilst lying back.

• Engage the abdominals and keep them a little tight.

• Arch back only using your middle back.

• Progress by shifting the position of the foam roller upwards till it’s located just at the trapezius
(Hunching muscles).
