Cool little tip I picked up from the interwebs yesterday watching foam rolling vids. One of the videos I watched mentioned how foam rolling the target muscle prior to exercise will increase blood flow and generate a greater pump, hence a better mind muscle connection. Well I had back tonight and I always have a hard time activating my left lat. Foam rolled each lat for about a minute and the pump on both sides was incredible and I had a much better MMC than normal.
Conclusion: Have a lagging body part? This is generally caused by a poor MMC so foam roll the muscle prior to working it, follow it with a 20 sec or so static stretch and see if you notice a difference.
I posted this elsewhere in a private group but I figured some people here would benefit from seeing it. The difference I noticed was pretty insane. I'm going to do my best to foam roll every body part I have targeted for the day prior to lifting and see what happens.
