Tight Muscles and Trigger Ball Exercises video here


Here is a transcript of this video for tight muscles

Cameron:            We’ve just done some of the exercises with a foam roller. This little ball over here is called a trigger ball, and we talked about trigger points. The great thing about this particular instrument, other than it causes more pain, is that it’s really targeted and focused around the areas that we can do.

Editor: You can find some great equipment to release your tight muscles on our website.

Cameron:          You can actually go from the foam roller and progress up to this, when your muscles start to release a little bit more. I’ll just get Sally quickly to go through some of the ones that we’ve just done. We’ll start on with the calf. We just put that underneath our calf, exactly what we did before, just rolling it up, holding it onto the points for 10 seconds, and then move up to the next point.

Sally:                     If you don’t have a trigger ball, a tennis ball’s not a bad substitution to use, to start off with.

Cameron:            Yep. Tennis ball, golf balls. Obviously, the foam roller is fairly good pretty quickly. There’s so many usages for that.

Sally:                     That’s released really quickly.

Cameron:            Yeah. Just the same sort of techniques, but the same spots. The other really good thing about the trigger ball, or just having something a little bit more focused, is one of the muscles in our bottom.

One of those muscles is called our glute medius. We’re going to have a look at this one. I’ll get you facing on this side. Now, the glute medius is the top half of the bottom, and just a little bit on the inside through here. We’re just going to try and put that right through there.

If you’ve got some pain through your glute medius, you’re really going to know it as soon as once you find it. It’s on the outside part, not all the way to the hip, and the top portion of it, and it’s kind of a soft spot that that ball’s just going to sink into.

How’s your glutes?

Sally:                     Yeah, they’re great!

Cameron:            That’s the sort of reaction most people will have when they find their glute medius. It’s this tiny muscle that they never even knew they had, and then all of a sudden, you know you’ve got it now.

Sally:                     Yes. Yes. Again, it’s a muscle that doesn’t often switch on. You need to really work it when you’re exercising generally as well. Yeah.

Cameron:            Yeah. A lot of runners, a lot of walkers, have a lot of pain through this area, don’t realize it until they actually do something like this. Great one to release.

Sally:                     Yep. That’s good. Thank’s, Cameron.
