The “Mobility at your Desk” series was created to help people stay mobile when they are at work. In this 10 week tutorial we will take you through 10 parts of the body that will only take 10 minutes a day to mobilize!
WEEK 9/10: PEC RELEASE:
Most people don’t realize they need to release tightness in their Pec muscles. The Pec is a major muscle that contributes to neck pain and tightness when working at your desk. Try this pec release and feel the immediate difference!
WHAT YOU NEED: 1 Acumobility Ball
1. Single Ball: Using an Acumobility ball as a self massage tool, work the Pec muscle with the rounded side applying deep pressure on each tender spot. If you find a really tender spot that needs more focal pressure, use the knife edge to get even deeper. Also move the arm through range of motion to enhance mobility: lifting the arm through flexion and internal and external rotation. Try to work the entire Pec muscle from the chest all the way out to the shoulder.
MOBILITY TIME: 9 minutes – Forearm, Tricep, Neck, Foot, Hamstring, Quad, Glute, Back, Pec
*Always consult a physician before beginning a new exercise, massage, mobility regimen.
