Golf Ball Stretch & Massage - Seated - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


A golf ball is the ideal size and density for massaging the under surface of the feet. Daily walking and standing coupled with uncomfortable footwear can often lead to sore feet at the end of the day. This golf ball exercise will work to reduce muscle spasms, increase flexibility and improve blood flow.
Incorporate this exercise into your training programme or simply leave a golf ball next to the couch under your work desk to perform this throughout the day.


Toe Mobilisation - Seated - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


The toes assist in ambulation and movement such as walking, running, jumping, etc. Toes also function to improve balance, support bodyweight and propel you forward. A great way to reduce fall-risk potential and improve mobility is to ensure the toes are agile and flexible. Hands-on mobilisation of the toes improves the overall health of your toes.
Don’t forget to give all your toes a good inspection during this exercise. Look for any damage to the toenails and check for cuts, blisters or rough skin. Visit your local podiatrist for evaluation and self-care instructions as needed.


Shin Muscle Stretch - Standing - Beginner

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


Muscles of the anterior compartment of the shin work primarily to lift the foot upwards towards the shin. This is a critical movement for walking and running. Inefficiency of these muscles often cause “shin splints”. Regular stretching and strengthening of the shin muscles will reduce the likelihood of injury.
Passive stretching is a technique that aims to lengthen the musculo-tendinous tissues with the use of some sort of external assistance such as a towel, resistance band, bodyweight or even a training partner. Experts typically recommend avoiding passive stretches just before physical activities, using them instead as a cool down or recovery day tool.


Deep Calf Stretch - Standing - Advanced

by MASS4D® Media February 08, 2018


The calf is comprised of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles. This stretch will affect the soleus primarily and gastroc secondarily. This exercise has the added benefit of assessing and increasing ankle range of motion. After mastering this version, you can move your foot away from the wall by 1cm and repeat.

Hold-Relax technique stretching is called Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching that can trigger a reflex response. This enhances communication between the muscle fibres and the brain. PNF is viewed as one of the most effective stretching methods to improve range of motion.
