Great Chest Stretch for Back Pain

Great Chest Stretch for Back Pain


Hi everyone! it’s Barbara Depta, high performance
coach, founder of Beyondstretch. After labor day weekend, I bet you’re sore for many reasons.
I’m not here to judge you, I’m here to take you to the next level and help you to feel
better. So, going into next weekend because today is Friday so we have Friday, Saturday,
Sunday. I wanna make sure that your body feels great. Not just your lower back, not just
your hips but also the upper body. and as a female, I can say that sometimes our upper
body, chest, our boobies contribute to a back pain. So, I wanna make sure that females with
it pretty gifted chest, stretch the chest properly. So, they don’t get any back pain,
because usually we walk that way. And the guys that’s says “I lift things up and I put
them down” they need to stretch them as well, not just the chest but the bicep, the forearms
and the fingertips because that’s how fascia connects the muscles. I’m not here today to
talk about fascia, but I want to make sure gifted ladies and guys with those big chest
and weak back, actually get streched and start paying attention to their body, energy and
their health, so to give you a good stretch the possibly you haven’t seen it, it’s not
one of those holders, ” oh I just stretched my self again”, I want the chest, bicep, forearm
and the fingertips for that I am going to use my ball, which I’m going to bring, give
me a second and I’m going to show you few stretching that I want you to do. So, probably it will be better if I’m on this side, utilizing first two hands together and then, one at
a time. So, I want you to put your hands on the top of the ball on inhale, just smile
and on the exhale look down and press your hands on the top of the ball. come back, let’s do it at least five more times. I’m not here to tell you how many, I’m here to tell you,
listen to your body what it tells you. But, I don’t feel stiffed but five sounds good
to me so I will do three more. exhale, come up exhale. Again, in here deep inhale exhale and move and one more time let it go. Now I wanna extend this a little bit more I warmed up my entire chest. Now I wanna go one hand at a time. and you will see my forearm and my elbow will be on the top of the ball. My shoulder will be aiming to my opposite hand, that’s how I wanna stretch the pec. Then I will extend my hand and stretch entire hand not just the pec. However, like I said it’s all connected, so I just can’t pay attention to individual muscle, if I wanna be a high performer, feel better and be more energized. So hand right under my shoulder, elbow on the top of the ball create few circles warm
up the shoulder a little bit. and now again this shoulder is being push down to the ground to my opposite hand hold it for three seconds and relax take a deep inhale, on exhale pulled this shoulder down towards my head you can even look down. And again one more time, and now I wanna play with the angles. Because the muscle is not just that long, and in one direction, actually it spreads out this way so I wanna make sure that I stretched every single fiber or as many as I can. So I move along a little bit forward. And again pulling my shoulder down towards this hand. On exhale, one more time. And I’m extending my hand again, I can roll it a little bit more and eventually guys
I’m going to straight head and stretch I can circle open up my shoulder and again stretch my chest, my bicep, my forearm including my fingertips. That’s a stretch for chest. Where you might just go against the wall and really lock yourself quiet well and stretch maybe one fiber of your chest not the entire two muscles plus your bicep plus the front Altoids, plus your ex tensors and your fingertips. So again., fascia connects one muscle with another and it doesn’t start from the sternum and goes to your shoulder it actually is everywhere under your skin connecting one muscle with another your ligaments, tendons, it allows you to move back better, think quicker because it also surrounding your brain as well, yes it’s everywhere so you have to make sure that you stay pliable, flexible, as that keeps your energy high, it really does. Negative thought actually influence
fascia, dehydration influences fascia. So, the one thing that you can definitely do is
to stretch properly but don’t be one of the ignorant people to say, “Oh I do
stretch, yeah, ahuh!, ahuh!, I do.” Those are very old fashion that high performers
don’t do. When high performance stretch they think of the entire hand with the entire leg,
opposite shoulder, opposite hip. They think of lines that different muscles are involved
and allowed them to throw, to run, to sit, to do everything. So without going on and
on and on and on about things that I love which one of them is energy and one of them is Fascia, flexibility, and many more. I hope that you liked this stretch and if you wanna get more to avoid back pain and just to feel better, please go to Beyondstretch as I have over there my excellent E-book with videos, great exercises and assessments that you can put yourself through and see what muscles are stable what you want to have to work on to maybe get rid of your back pain or to increase energy in your day. Have a
fabulous Friday and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
