Self Administered Soft Tissue Release of the Pecs (Chest Muscles) using a Tennis Ball
If you suffer with an upper crossed posture or upper body dysfunction, often you’ll find that the pec muscles (especially pec min) will be short, tight and overactive. Before you stretch these muscles you need to first release the tension, and a tennis ball is great for this. You can then go ahead and stretch the muscle into its new found range.
Perform the pec release technique for 2 – 3 minutes working all the soft tissue around the anterior chest, hold on any areas of tenderness for about 30 seconds or until you feel a release and then move onto the next area.
