A common complaint from clients is that their mid back is tight and sore. These are three great exercises that you can do at work to help ease your mid-back.
#1 – Standing Wall Twist
Face the chair, lift your left leg up on the chair, and then rotate your body towards the wall. Place your hands on the wall and hold that position so you can feel a light stretch in that mid back and upper back area. Shuffle your hands to intensify the stretch, depending on how much you are looking for. Hold this for 10 seconds.

#2 – Standing Twist
Again, face the chair, bring your left leg up, move your hands out front and then rotate in the opposite direction. Hold this for 10 seconds, return to the start and relax.
#3 – Chair Shoulder Drop
Put your hands on the back of the chair, slightly bend your knees, bend through the hips and try to drop those shoulders. Slightly arch in your mid back area. Hold for 10 seconds.
