In this video, I wanted to go through the best mobility exercises for the neck.
Best Mobility Exercises For The Neck
CLICK HERE to watch the video.
I will get Andrea to demonstrate.
Perform four exercises to help mobilize your neck. Focus on the mid back. Start off crossing your hands onto opposite shoulders and then doing a side bend. Try to focus on the mid back area where the movement is happening, and then you are going to move your head. Your head is going to follow this movement, and then you are going to move to the other side. Do side bending with the mid back and your head and then return to the start. You are then going to arch, focusing on arching in that mid back area and bringing the head back. Move forward, rounding through mid back area and bringing the head forward.
Start off with 2-3 repetitions in each direction. When it comes to length of the hold, go for 1-2 seconds hold. After you have done that, see how you feel. If you feel worse, make sure you are doing the exercises correctly. If it still doesn’t feel right, discontinue the exercise. If the exercise makes you feel better, you can progress the exercise. You can progress to about 5 repetitions in each direction. You can do this exercise every day. We are loosening up the mid back and the neck in order to give the neck more movement. Make sure to go through all four of those directions: left side, right side, back and forward.
So give that exercise a go! I am certain that this exercise will help you improve the mobility in your neck and in your mid back.
