DIY Friday: Combating T Rex Arms Part 2

diyfriday (2)

*Do it yourself! Every Friday we do a roundup of great posts, videos, or other resources around a theme that help people to turn their bodies from cranky to happy.*

3194747923_59c6c04f98_zHowdy! On last week's round up we began to look at some therapy ball help for those wound up, bound up forearms and the elbow tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome that so often come along with them. This week we're looking at the same thing but from a movement perspective. Both are fab ways to tackle the issue and I like them (therapy balls and movement) best as a combo platter.

Note: as Sue Hitzmann remarked in her video on last week's DIY Friday, sometimes stretching carpal tunnel syndrome can just agitate things. So if your nerves are currently all gummed up and inflamed, you may want to start with therapy balls and progress to these movements from there. Or give the movements a shot and see how you do with them, but listen to your body!

First here's a little mini Yoga Tune Up® video that I made for you of the fantastic shoulder and arm unraveller, Dancing with Myself (ha ha now you have the song stuck in your head!):

   

Secondly, here's Willow Ryan on Breaking Muscle going over some great stretching and strengthening movements:

Now you and your computer can be better friends!
