Hey, I just got back from Denver. The last time I was in Denver, I wasn’t able to enjoy much but this time the city really won me over. One of the highlights was when we went to the mountains and did whitewater rafting activity together with a number of people from the conference that I attended.
During the rafting trip, I noticed a lot people who were sleeping in their chairs. The ones that looked most uncomfortable at their sleeping position and mostly likely be in pain were men. Today, I have quick exercises for men to help get rid of their neck pain.
Enjoy the video and article below!
In today’ video, I wanted to go through the best neck pain relief exercise for men.

I got Donnalee to demonstrate.
# 1 – Fingers into the muscle
Men suffer from neck pain because of muscle tightness commonly in their upper trapezius. Take your fingers and then press into the muscle. You will look for the sensitive spot within the muscle. You will press upon that sensitive spot so it’s comfortable and not in screaming pain. Hold it there and let it relax. When it relaxes, you will then move over to another point. You will work your way throughout the muscle looking for those sensitive points.
# 2 – Ball into the muscle
You use a ball and push the ball into the muscle. Perform one set of 5 repetitions so looking at 5 different spots in the muscle. Utilize a ball and find those sensitive areas, pressing the ball into the hyperactive muscle or tight muscle.
# 3 – Ball between the wall and the body
You can make it even more challenging by utilizing the wall. Place the ball between the wall and your body. Put your body weight into it pressing deeper and harder into the muscle. Find the sensitive area and then press. It will be a little uncomfortable. You will hold it for a second or two until it relaxes and then you will move on to another spot in the muscles.
Give these three options a go for neck pain relief!
