The traditional trigger point release technique with applying pressure with a Lacrosse ball or a mobility ball is useful and beneficial.
But in this video I demonstrate a variation that I feel adds a compenent that is even more effective.
The “pin and stretch” technique does a really great job at pinning the muscle and elongating it with movement. You “tack” the tissue down and then increase the stretch through movement.
This has been a go-to of mine with various tender or restricted muscle groups. Its quick and useful! Give it a try!
*** I have just released my new warm-up that was created specifically for grapplers!
The warm-up includes dynamic movements, stretches, range of motion exercises, muscle activation exercises, and a bunch more content that I have used myself and with my training partners to allow for an effective and useful warm-up to keep you healthy and training.
