This week a client mentioned that it was a real struggle for her to reach around and do up her bra every-day.  If you don’t wear a bra, these exercises are really about shoulder mobility and flexibility which help with posture, golf swings and neck pain.

Tight hamstrings and hips are often the main issues for people that can’t reach their toes.

Most of the foam roller stretches are done on the floor so I wanted to cover some ways to deeply stretch and get knots out of your muscles without having to go down to the floor. In the videos below I use a small hard ball (tennis or lacrosse ball) against the wall to release the often tight muscles of the upper back and hips.
