In today’s video, I wanted to show you a must-do rounded shoulders massage exercise.
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
I got Andrea to demonstrate the exercise.
You need a firm and hardball in a good size. You can use a dog ball, cross ball, baseball, golf ball, or tennis ball.
With rounded shoulders, your shoulders are rounded forward. The pec minor and pec major are tight bringing the shoulder forward. We need to massage that area in order to loosen up the muscle so that the shoulder will be in a good position.
Start off by just pressing the ball into that area. Roll the ball in circles clockwise and counter-clockwise and move it up and down. In order to progress, move towards the wall where you will have the ball between yourself and the wall. Roll the ball in circles clockwise and counterclockwise. Start off with 5 repetitions clockwise and counter-clockwise then see how it feels. If you feel better, continue on and do couple more repetitions up to 10 repetitions in each direction.
