All you need is a Ball and a Stick

These 3 moves are my “GO-TO” moves whenever I feel anything funky in my shoulder before/after a workout.

You will need a couple of things:

First, you need a Ball.

The Ball can be any small ball (tennis ball, golf ball, baseball, softball) but I prefer a Lacrosse Ball for a few reasons. The Lacrosse ball is tacky so it will stick to the area well without slipping. Also, the Lacrosse ball is not too soft or too hard. If you need something softer though, I’d go with a tennis ball or racket ball.

Second, you need a Stick.

I use a broomstick and prefer a wooden one. If you don’t have a broomstick…you should probably get one.

Areas Targeted on The Video are…

1. The Pectorals Minor (front shoulder)

2. The First Rib (top of the shoulder)

3. The Rotator Cuff Muscles (back of the shoulder)
