How to Complete the Trap Grinder

The Best Shoulder Release

Are you constantly checking for and writing stressful emails? Or going into stressful meeting or teleconferences? If yes, I will bet you get constant neck or shoulder pain from subconsciously bringing your shoulders up to your ears as a form of comfort! Because of this position, your muscles get tight … so you need to RELAX and try out this exercise! It is great for anyone who constantly has that tight spot on their shoulder that they just can’t seem to get rid of. This is exactly how to complete the best shoulder release around; the trap grinder.

Lie on your back and place your tool of choice (e.g. release ball) on the back side of your upper shoulder – i.e. in the meaty part! Through the pressure on your shoulder, roll the ball back and forth into your shoulder muscles. To make this more effective, you can add some movement with your arm while pressing the ball into your shoulder.

Do this for 2 minutes throughout the day. Make sure to move the ball throughout the length of your shoulder during this time.
