The “Mobility at your Desk” series was created to help people stay mobile when they are at work. In this 10 week tutorial we will take you through 10 parts of the body that will only take 10 minutes a day to mobilize!
WEEK 2/10: TRICEPS MOBILITY AT YOUR DESK
This week we are tackling an area of the body most people don’t think about mobilizing; the Tricep! The triceps are a major source of tightness and tension for both sedentary people and athletes- you just don’t realize it! We suggest beginning with the Level 1 Acumobility Ball and advancing to the Level 2 Acumobility Ball when ready!
WHAT YOU NEED: 2 Acumobility Balls, oil (optional)
- Single Ball Tricept Release: Lean forward with your tricep contacting the ball. Apply downward pressure on the ball as you work from elbow up to the shoulder. When you find a tender spot or trigger point stop on that point and move your arm through range of motion.
- 2 Acumobility Ball Release: Place the 2 Acumobility balls together to create a Vise. Place the tricep between the balls and work from elbow up to the shoulder applying downward pressure and moving the arm through range of motion.
- Advanced Release with Oil: Apply a small amount of oil (any kind) on the top of the Acumobility Ball and on the tricep. Then work from elbow to shoulder applying downward pressure as you slide the muscle over the ball.
MOBILITY TIME: 2 minutes Total including – Forearm and Tricep
