Serratus Exercise Video

This video illustrates the serratus exercise on the foam roller.

The serratus exercise on the foam roller targets the back extensors, the serratus to maintain scapular stabilization, transversus abdominus, rectus abdominus and obliques. Focus on pulling elbows toward ribcage, preventing overextension of the thoracic and lumbar spine.

As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any exercise program. If you should experience any pain or discomfort, please discontinue the exercise and consult your doctor immediately.

    Be aware some clients will use their lats instead of their seratus on this exercise. Also if there is any shoulders problems, this might be too much range of motion. Here is an article I wrote on the shoulders and an alternative exercise for the serratus.

    Thanks for the educating Pilates teachers about this important muscles.

    Both are important comments on the exercise. Thanks for the helpful feedback.

    I find the angle the foam roller creates is uncomfortable for a lot of my clients so we use a pool noodle instead, those thinner tubes used in water aerobics classes. Same effect of the roll, but shoulder is in much less extension.
