"The point of rolling your thoracic spine is usually to get a bit more thoracic extension and help improve your efficiency with overhead lifts. Remember that your shoulder joint only really achieves 165 degrees of overhead flexion and in order to get that big weight overhead we need to get that last 15 degrees from our thoracic spine. Thoracic spine extension is also a major player in shoulder health so we better get this hammered down."
