Tight traps are a common problem not only in athletes, but also those people that find they spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer screen throughout the day! Here’s two simple ways you can help relief some of the tension that can often present up into your neck and/or between your shoulders.
Trap Release – Using a lax or tennis ball, lie on your back and place the ball at the base of your neck off to one side (towards your shoulder). Hold on this spot for 30secs and then slowly move it along to another tight spot. For added release, come up into a glute bridge and hold.
Flame Stretch – A great one to do when sitting at your desk! Cross your arms in front of your chest (as shown). Then, pull your shoulder down so they are away from your ears, push your arms forward in front of your and then gently press up until you feel some tension at the base of your neck or in between your shoulders. Hold this for 30secs – 1 min then change your arms over and repeat.

Whoops! Squats felt REALLY good today. Decided to go for a top set of 465x5. Unfortunately, after rep 3 the bar slid down off my right shoulder. Tried to compensate on rep 4, but it slid completely out of my hand... luckily I had a graceful exit!! 😅
I know I've got 5+ reps in me with that weight, beltless with knee sleeves. Will try again soon.
2nd video is just something I've been adding in that's helping my hip mobility issues. Using some dynamic movements for my warm-up. (Video sped up to fit).
