I’ll get Chris to demonstrate.
#1 – Chest Stretch
Place your forearm up against the wall with your elbow below the shoulder and your right shoulder up. Step through with your right leg. Look for a light stretch in the front of your chest. If you have a forward head posture, you tend to be tight in the front of the shoulder. 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
While sitting, lace your fingers, lift your arms overhead, and then lower back down. We are trying to loosen things up in the shoulder. Lift the hands overhead so that we are working on those mid back muscles. This puts your head into a better position, helping to 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.
