The first exercise featured below works on your neck muscles. Strong neck muscles help with posture, protection against injury (i.e. concussions and other head injuries), and improved sports performance through better breathing and balance.
To complete the exercise:
1. Extend neck through a chin tuck and hold this position against the ball for 30 seconds.
2. Apply pressure through your forehead into the ball and hold this position against the ball for 30 seconds.
3 & 4. Challenge your lateral flexion and neck rotator muscles through placing the ball on either side of your head and hold this position against the ball for 30 seconds.
The next exercise works on the shoulder by pressing the ball against a wall and completing different movements. Check it out in the video below!
