This series of stretches are some of my go-to exercises for improving neck pain, decreasing neck tension, and improving neck mobility. As we train Jiu-Jitsu, we constantly engage our muscles that allow for shrugging of the shoulders to fight off chokes and submissions.
Also everyday sitting tasks such as working on the computer can cause major postural dysfunction. This series of stretches are some of the absolute best and most effective to stretch the neck muscles, reduce pain, improve range of motion, and keep your neck healthy for BJJ.
