I’ll get Chris to demonstrate.
#1 – Chest Stretch
He has got his forearm up against the wall. He has got his elbow below the shoulder and his right shoulder up. He has to step through with his right leg. He is looking for a light stretch in the front of the chest. If you have a forward head posture, you tend to be tight in the front of the shoulder. You will do this stretch on both sides alternating back and forth. Do two repetitions and hold the end position for 20 seconds.
#2 – Lift the Arms Over Head
Lift the Arms Over Head
You will take a seat. Lace your fingers and lift your arms over head then back down. We are losing things up in the shoulder. We are lifting the hands over head so we are working on those mid back muscles. This puts the head into a better position, help open up the shoulders and work on loosening up the mid back. In a nice smooth movement, start off with 5 repetitions. Hold the end position for 5 seconds and then you can progress to 10 repetitions for 10 seconds.
