Get on the Ball: Shoulder Wall Roll

Fall weather is in full force, and that means an abundance of fallen leaves. If you're spending a ton of time raking your lawn, then your shoulders and upper back are probably super sore. For relief, here's a great stretch you can do with an exercise ball and a wall.

To learn how to do this move


  • Stand about two feet away from a wall, with your feet hips-width distance apart. Place an exercise ball on the wall so the top is at eye level. Rest your forearms on the ball with your elbows bent and your palms facing each other.
  • Now slowly straighten your arms toward the ceiling, rolling the ball up the wall. When your arms are straight, try to press your torso toward the wall slightly without arching your back. This will intensify the stretch.
  • Then roll the ball back down to the starting position.
  • Repeat this move 10 to 15 times.
