All right. I have a little tip for you this morning for the foam roll. This is great movement, feels good on the shoulders, feels good on the mid-back. I highly recommend keeping one of these in your office or at your desk if you have one. you're gonna start by laying on the foam roll with it vertically underneath you, head supported, and butt supported. And you're gonna start with your arms out to the side, then you're gonna bring them up. You're gonna do 10 of these, just as some dynamic movement. It's a nice warm-up, and then you can do some swimmers, some shoulder flexion. This helps open up the lat, open, open up everything to help your shoulder range-of-motion. You wanna make sure when you're lying on the foam roller like this, that you're not arching, that you're keeping your back flat, your pelvis tilted. You wanna make sure your abs are engaged, and you can also just simply keep your arms open here, and this is a great stretch to help open up the pec and really combat the negative effects of leaning forward. All right, well, thanks for watching.
Hi, I'm going to give you guys a stretch that is nice to do if you're having some shoulder pain or if you're having any mid back pain. This is a nice stretch to help relieve the serratus anterior, the lats, the intercostal muscles on the ribs and you'll even get some in your rotator cuff with it. So, here we go. You're going to lay with the foam roll horizontally. You're going to put it right underneath your chest and you're going to kind of go back and forth. Find a good spot where you feel like, oh that just needs to let go, kind of roll up and down if you need to, and this is a great way to release all of those muscles, help improve posture, shoulder range of motion, and then decrease some of that mid back pain that we get with posture-related issues. All right, good luck.
