Triceps Myofascial Release and Stretch

Triceps Myofascial Release and Stretch


Dom McKay musculoskeletal therapist
in this video I’m going to be teaching you how to release and stretch your
triceps now the triceps are these muscles here
that sit on the back of your arm so it’s got three head three heads hence the
name triceps so the first thing we’re going to do is to stretch them so the
way to stretch it is is an exercise called cow face now essentially what
you’re going to be doing is putting your hand up and over your head and then
we’re going to assist the stretch by grabbing the hand from behind so I’m
going to give you a demonstration of that now so up and over and then if you
can link your fingers and you can pull that arm down and you can see I’ve got a
nice big stretch through the the back of my arm through those triceps there now a
lot of people aren’t going to have this shoulder mobility so what I’m going to
do now is show you how to do it if you lack that mobility and the ability to
grasp your hands behind your back so what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna throw
the band you can use them you could use anything a towel whatever you’ve got
available to you so throw the band or the towel over your shoulder grab it
with the other hand and get your arm as high as you can and then just simply
pull down here so you can see by doing that I’ve created a force that’s
allowing you to stretch that the tricep even stronger okay so doing this will
really massively increase your shoulder mobility if you tighten the triceps so
to get a nice release into the triceps here we’re going to place the ball onto
the onto the desk here and we’re just gonna put our weight onto the ball so
bang that’s that’s right on it on a trigger point I can feel that we’re
referring all sorts of places so you can even move the arm a little bit and find
the most painful points and is holding on those points for a
little while and work your way all the way up the arm
