KNOCK OUT NECK TENSION
By show of 👋 hands, how many of you feel tight and tense across the top of your shoulders? And how many of you have experienced that slow, 😖 creeping tightness set in after a set of heavy squats or bench? Monica (@quaddoc) was dealing with it tonight so we decided to show you a quick way to get some relief.
The traps are chronically 😠 tense in a lot of people I see due to bad breathing habits, stress, and poor ergonomics. And that can wreak havoc.on your neck.
Luckily, we can do something about that. Now, you're absolutely going to have to address those causes 👆 up above if you want long term relief. But if you feel like you need a quick fix, this barbell release can do the trick.
Be nice to yourself with this one. 🙅 Don't load up a bunch of weight on the bar and don't spend a long time on it. Roll the bar around, reach down, and move your neck a bit. It's gonna hurt, but you're neck and shoulders will 😍 thank you later.
