Trap Mash (Lacrosse Ball) - 1:00 Each Side
Seek out the tight spots here, and steadily increase pressure with our bodyweight. With a locked our elbow, mobilize by raising the arm overhead and back to the floor. Aim to bring the bicep as close as we can to the ear, and pause at the limit of our range of motion. Over the course of the 1:00 on each side, move the ball around slightly to seek our more tight spots.
Foam Rolling: Thoracic + Lats (Upper Back) - 3:00 Total
Thoracic - With the foam roller on the ground, wrap your arms as far around yourself as you can, as if you are hugging yourself. This will open up portions of the back that you can isolate pressure on with the foam roller. After 90 seconds with arms across your body, complete the 90 seconds with both arms extended above your head, elbows locked out and hands together.
Lats - Tight lats restrict high elbows in a front squat. Mobilize these by laying on your side with the foam roller high towards the armpit area. Pinning your lat to the foam roller, make large sweeping motions. 90 seconds on each lat to round out the 3:00.
Childs Pose on Box - 1:00
Slowly allow our chest to sink lower, as we keep the arms locked out. Although we can relax our midsection to some extent, don't allow a full disengagement here. At that point, we are stretching our the abdominals, and not the shoulders. Play around with different hand placements, with a narrow grip being the most aggressive.
Banded Shoulder Distraction - 1:00 Each Side
Lace a stretching band onto a pull-up bar, and with one hand wrapped inside, face the band and step away to create tension. Allow your torso to pitch forward and allow the arm to relax into the stretch. If your right hand is inside the band, take a small step back with your right foot, and slowly rotate your torso to the right. This will further open and stretch your lat.
Laying Front Rack Stretch - 1:00
Elbows as far out in front of you as possible, and then work them in close together. Imagine turning everything off in the shoulders and triceps, allowing the muscles to sink into the floor. The aim is to close the gap as much as possible between the armpits and the ground.
Foam Rolling – Quads and Adductors – 2:00
Start high towards the hip, and work down towards the knee (core to extremity). Mash the quads with a foam roller, slowly moving high at the hip flexor down towards just above the patella(knee bone). After a full pass, from hip flexor to knee, go high to low again but this time on the inside of your thigh (adductor). After a full minute on the first leg, change to the second.
Couch Stretch - 2:00 Each Leg
Facing away from a wall in a kneeling position with hands on the floor for support, place one leg so that the shin bone is as close to the wall as possible (the respective foot will be in the air). Slowly bring the opposite foot up in front of you, and keep the heel down for a base of stability. Slowly bring your chest up as you imagine driving your waist forward, and hold at a position that provides a deep, but overwhelming stretch. Focus on your breathing.
Pigeon Pose – 2:00 each side
From a pushup position, sweep one leg beneath your body. Let’s use the right as an example. With your right leg beneath your body, aim to adjust your shin so that it is perpendicular to your torso – in other words, horizontal in relation to where your torso is facing. Slowly imagine sinking your waist back and down to the floor as you feel the stretch in the outside of your hip.
