Day 12 – The Minor Pecker Wrecker

Your pec minor is ruining your life. It makes you slouch and keeps you from being able to move like you’re supposed to move. You probably shouldn’t have it removed though because you will need it eventually. Your best bet is to bend it to your will. Take a Yoga Tune Up® Alpha ball and dig it in there real good. Then move that shoulder joint and get that pec to release it’s hold on the front of your humerus. Do this move in a doorway or a corner or a squat rack, or, if you’re a real masochist, you can do this laying face down on the floor on top of the alpha ball (you sicko!). Pin and stretch the muscle by applying deep pressure and moving the arm through various ranges of motion.

Here’s a tip for finding the pec minor. Take your left elbow and lift it out to the side like a chicken wing (abduction). Reach across your chest with your right hand and put four fingers into your left armpit and grab the front wall of your arm pit and pull it forward. That piece of meat is your pectoralis muscle. Where your thumb closes and presses into the front is your pec minor. Place the ball right where your thumb is pressing.

The check in and check out is to test your overhead position and/or your extension position (arms lifted in back of your body).

The rules for the Ball Fucking Harder Challenge are easy. First, I recommend getting some Yoga Tune Up® balls to roll on. All you have to do is post a pic or video of yourself doing the technique and tag me (@coachpanda). Use the hashtags #ballfuckingharder #30daypandachallenge #supplepandas #pandiculation. The challenge is even better when you share it with friends so tag your friends to play along.
