#1 Neck massage
Lie down on the ground and place a massage ball underneath your neck. You can start by putting it on the right muscular cord of your neck. Avoid placing it directly onto your cervical spine. Place the ball on a spot where it feels right for you and hold this position up to 30 seconds. Gently move your head from side to side. Bring it down your cervical spine with your hands and hold the position. When you finished the right cord, you can move on to the left side. Always be gentle in your movements and listen to your body.
#2 Forearm massage
Place the massage ball on a table. Put your right forearm on the ball and press it down. You can start with a pronated hand (palm facing down). Roll from your wrist to your elbow and back. Repeat 10 times. Supinate your hand (palm facing up) and repeat the movement. For more intensity, place your other hand on top of your forearm. When you are done, repeat the move on the left forearm.
#3 Foot massage
Enjoy the pleasure of a foot massage with a massage ball. Place the ball on the ground. Hold on to a wall and place one foot on the ball. By rolling back and forth, you will feel the tight spots. You can easily modify the intensity by bringing more pressure on your soles. This exercise can also easily be done while sitting. When you are ready, take it to the other foot.
#4 Hand massage
The hand massage is simple but effective. Either place the massage ball on the table or between your hands. Roll it around your palms and your fingers.
#5 Shoulder blade massage
Stand close to a wall. Place a massage ball under your shoulder blades by squeezing it in between the wall and your back. By bending and extending your knees, you can roll your massage ball up and down the tight spots around your shoulder blades. For more stability, place your hands on your upper thighs. Here you can also play with the intensity by pressing your back more firmly against the wall.
#6 Pectorals massage
For this exercise, use the wall for support. Place a massage ball at the inner side of your right shoulder joint. Try to roll the ball horizontally over your pectoral muscles. Slowly, bring it back and forth 10 – 12 times. Focus on your posture here as well. Do not overarch in your lower back and keep your core activated. When you are ready, take it to the left side.
#7 Glute massage
Sit down on the ground and bend your knees. Keep your feet flat on the ground. Place a massage ball under your right glute. Bring your hands to the floor for support. Press your hands now into the ground and roll your ball on the glute till you find the ‘juicy’ spots. Roll around as long as you feel ease or hold one position for up to 30 seconds. To modify and intensify the move, you can bring your left foot over your right knee. When you are ready, move on to the left side.
#8 Hamstring massage
Take a seat on the ground and extend your right leg. Bend your left knee and place your foot flat on the ground. Place a massage ball under your right thigh. Bring your arms slightly behind you for support. By pressing your left foot on the ground, you can shift your weight slightly forward and backwards. Roll around the target areas and hold position when you find the ‘sweet’ spot. Repeat on the other leg. To modify, sit down on a chair and place a massage ball under your right thigh.
#9 Quad massage
Lie down on the ground with your belly facing the mat. Support your upper body with your forearms. Engage your core and activate your lower back. You don’t want to overarch in your lower back. Place a massage ball under your right thigh (quadriceps). Tuck your toes, so your legs ‘levitate’ slightly parallel to the ground. By pushing your toes and forearms forward and backwards so you can roll around your quadriceps. When you are done, repeat on the left side.
#10 Hip massage
Lie down on the ground on your right side. Straighten your legs. Now bring your left foot over your right leg and place it flat on the ground in front of you. Support your upper body by placing your right forearm flat on the ground. Place a massage ball under your right hip. Bring your other arm in front of you for more stability. Roll around your hip area to find the tight spots (tissue not bone). Roll slowly and with control. Take care not to compromise your lower back here. When you are ready, repeat the exercise on the other side. To modify this exercise, you can also do it in a vertical posture against the wall.
In the beginning, rolling your tight spots can be a bit painful. This feeling will ease over time, and you will quickly just enjoy the benefits of exercising with a Meglio Massage Ball. Always modify to either intensify or relieve the pressure on your target areas. When you feel painful spots, make sure to connect to your breath.
