Just wanted to thank you for this article! I had a super tight muscle in my neck and with these stretches, was able to release it and be comfortable for the remainder of my workday. definitely bookmarking!


Not really feeling like reading this and contorting myself or making mistakes with an already stiff neck. Please add some pix. Thank you.


Some images would be really great for this article! Pleeeeease add some!

The racial nerve intervates the triceps. My guess is the nerve has been irritated by some sort of impingment either in the neck or facial (connective tissue). Nerves do not stretch they glide therefore if you stretch the muscle and the nerve doesn't glide, irritation can happen. Seeing a person who performs myofacial techniques may help.


About a month ago was doing tricep dips, continued for about week. Began to feel something in neck and shoulder on left side like I hurt a muscle or nerve. Has been awhile but still bothering me, hvnt worked out in a week. What can be done and how long to heal?

As an R.Y.T. for a continuous, basic series, it's so important that each student realizes the prevention that stretches can accomplish. These are easy and great. Thanks.
