Flexibility exercises can keep muscles in balance

    Dr. Clayton Everline uses "T" straps to stretch the pectoralis minor muscle, a small chest muscle that gets a heavy workout from stroking into a wave. With the long end suspended from a tree or hook, top, Everline pulls the handles in a rowing motion, angling his arms and body in different ways, trying to pull his shoulder blades back and down.

    Everline sits on a foam roller, crosses his legs and leans back, rocking slowly to work his glutes.

    Everline lies on two foam rollers, one at the armpit and one at the thigh, and uses his feet to rock back and forth to give surf-exhausted muscles a massage, while pressing his forearm into the ground to stretch out his shoulder.
