“My Back And Shoulders Hurt” Circuit
Seems like I hear more and more from clients and friends that they have stiff shoulders and backs. This is the time of year when that type of things becomes more common.
Car trips for fall break and holidays, the stress of year end work, holiday stress, etc... When you sit in a car or at a computer for too long, you will experience pain, it doesn't matter if you have perfect posture.
The absolute best way to avoid this is to get up frequently throughout the day. Every 15 minutes if possible, but at least once every hour. Get up, walk around, and stretch.
Something else you can do that is very helpful is this quick circuit:
|Upper back and shoulder stiffness|
Thanks again YouTube for picking a super, awkward thumbnail of me. It takes 10 minutes or less to get through, but it will make you feel so much better. Give it a try some time!
1. 10 Band pull aparts (knuckles up)
2. 10 Band pull aparts (palms up)
3. 10 Dislocators (back to front is one rep)
4. 10 Rolls on upper back
5. 10 Rolls on each shoulder blade
6. Repeat the whole circuit 2 more times as time permits
Fairly simple, but very effective especially when you do it consistently. Hope it helps you!
