Benefits

Your chest muscles help with pushing movements. Whether it’s pushing yourself up into Upward Dog, or supporting a low push-up position, these big muscles are used often. Needless to say, they get tight, especially the pec minor, which helps internally rotate the shoulder.

Keeping your chest loose is crucial for healthy posture.

 

How-to

To roll your chest, lie on your stomach and bring one arm to the side. Place the roller under your chest, angled by the front of your shoulder. Move around a little until you find a trigger spot, and simply hold, breathe, and relax until there’s a decrease in pressure.
