Take the static push up position either face down or up and start to tense and relax part by part on the inhale. Finish and shake the tension from your body and repeat two more times on the Exhale and on the pause between breaths and on the last one go and tense to the max and keep it as you listen in to the pulse in the tensed up area. Once you are done note if you feel your body to be more alive and next time change your position a bit to learn more on the way you keep and move tension in your body. The same can work for rolling in different ways during those three breath phases and if you are ready do a set of three rolls: one on the inhale one on the exhale and one on the pause and repeat it a few times till you feel the overbreathing or tension build and than when you reach a point of stress which makes you want to quit you are ready to learn something about yourself so let this gift arrive and find a way to clean the tension away and keep working.
