If you find yourself constantly shrugging your shoulders or asking a friend to rub them, I think you’re going to enjoy this fascia-releasing exercise. Tension in the upper shoulder or back area can be due to lots of things – such as shoveling snow, computer use or general poor posture.
You’ll do some warm-up movements, then we’ll bring in the tennis ball to add to movement to create some gentle yet satisfying fascial release. It will bring fresh movement, blood flow and help built-up toxins to mosey on out of your shoulders, neck and upper back.
After you’ve given it a try, please leave a comment below and let me know what you’re feeling in your body now.
How did you know?! Tidbit – snow shoveling muscles are the same as rolling out cookie dough muscles. Thanks, Jason!
Ha! You’re totally right about the cookie dough rolling muscles. Thanks for the insight, Lisa :)
Hey Jason. Totally excellent exercise. Thank you! A sensation of—Brand new! Head. Neck. Shoulders. Blood flowing in and more freedom of movement.
I miss you. Happy Spring is coming!
