Since there are five weeks in March, I am providing you with a biceps self-massage technique for this last week!
You will need a flat utensil, such as a spoon, as well as lotion or oil that can be used for the skin to perform this technique. Do not perform this self-massage if you have any bruising, open sores or skin that easily breaks, anemia, loss of sensation, or are on any blood thinner medications.
How to perform:
Note before you begin: The bicep muscles cover the length of the front of the humerus bone (the part of the arm between shoulder and elbow joints). Because of the way it lays we will use a simple massage technique called “stripping the muscle.” You will basically run the utensil up and down along the length of the muscle fibers.
