Unwinding Neck and Shoulder Tension
One common movement mistake we make ALL the time as humans is thinking we are moving one part when actually we are moving another. We raise a shoulder to move an arm in some way long enough, and all of a sudden the neck, shoulder and everything that hangs off of that are all glued together 🙄
And then, pain. Or not, depending on how much you listen to your body. But it’s oh so easy to see when it’s happening to someone. It looks like they’re wearing their shoulders like earrings, and you think “that can’t feel good”. This series on the Gyrotoner is one of my all time favorites. You basically explore PNF spirals in every way possible: palms up, palms down, facing the top arm, facing the bottom arm, facing away from the top/bottom arm, and you can even play with torso rotation, depending on how long you want to spend geeking out on all the possible minutae.
The Gyrotoner is an intimidating beast for the same reason that it’s exhilarating. You can adjust nearly everything on it! For example, the “arms” I’m holding on to can be lengthened,the width of the V can be adjusted, the handles can be rotated by 1/4 turns, and the central pivot point can rotate in a full circle as well as raised or lowered. So no matter what your range, you can work it.
Strength within range of motion is crucial for stable movement, and building strength is so much easier with feedback.
Because the tension ALSO can be adjusted, you can find the level of resistance that challenges as well as supports, and work that sweet spot until you change it once again!
The Upper Trapezius and shoulder muscles can get tight and full of trigger points from doing the activities we love, causing neck and back discomfort, as well as decreasing your mobility. The Wave Tool’s Trigger Point Knob and Levering Disc are essential for Upper Trapezius and Latisimus release as a part of your #wavetoolstherapy self treatment.

THE BENEFITS OF DOING PUSHUPS by -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was a young kid growing up, my dad would always talk about this famous NFL player named Herschel Walker. This guy was one of the strongest and fastest running backs I had ever seen. Fast forward more than 20 years and he decided to start an MMA career at the ripe age of 48 years old...and of course, he won both fights...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💪At that point, I had to do some research about Herschel Walker's workout routine. Do you know what his secret was? PUSHUPS.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉That's right. Herschel Walker claimed to have never touched a weight in his entire life. He attributes his upper body strength to pushups. Walker started by doing a couple of hundred reps, then eventually worked his way up to 3,500 pushups daily.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✔️Here are 5 simple benefits that you can experience by adding pushups to your training routine today:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
