If you’re anything like me, tight shoulders are your constant companion. Tight shoulders are common with the amount of time we spend;
Do you know what that tension turns into??? Tight shoulders equals PAIN! Put your hand up if you love pain…
I know ABSOLUTELY NO ONE raised their hand.
The worst thing is people make their tight shoulders worse! They make it worse by one thing they do while exercising. Perhaps you are doing it too.
It is holding your shoulders up during whatever exercise movement you are doing. This is often done subconsciously increasing your case of tight shoulders. I am going to give a yoga example but it happens in so many different movements.
See how my shoulders are level with my ears – that is adding to your shoulder PAIN! You don’t need anything else in your life adding tension to your shoulders. I dare you to just pop on the floor and see if what your shoulders look like when you do this position.
Are your shoulders level with your ears???
See how there is a space between my shoulders and ears. When you perform this posture using this type of alignment you strengthen the supporting muscles that surround the shoulders creating space in the spine. Pressure is released from the shoulders lessening tension.
As you train your body to utilize proper alignment you may even forget you once had shoulder pain… Who am I kidding, that may never fully happen because you know life happens. Perhaps your like me; your shoulders are like the secret box where all emotional tension lives. Ha!
Try this and say goodbye to unnecessary shoulder pain.
