Do you ever feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders? I’ve been there too! Today we are going to optimize and improve your shoulder mobility so that your shoulders are resilience and ready to take on anything.
Equipment needed: 1. Mobility ball or lacrosse ball. 2. Padded Mat (optional). It’s time to work on those tight, rounded shoulders! Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your shoulders and wrists.
We are starting off with a muscle/fascia release for the front of your shoulders, specifically your pec muscles. These muscles contribute to pulling your shoulders forward and can get tight in part from all of the sitting and slumped over posture most of us have. Next we are working on an end-range stretch eccentric technique to activate and stretch out these same muscles. The key is to maintain your contraction and keep tension in your pec muscles as you slowly stretch them out. Go as deep as you can without pain. We are finishing up with a stretch and activation movement for the back of your wrists aka your wrist extensors. The same principle applies here. Maintain your activation while you slowly stretch your wrists out.
Your shoulders are now ready to carry the world, or a barbell, or your kid, or _______________. Thanks for hanging with us. Have an amazing rest of your day!
