Stretch For Your Chest

Stretch It: Elbow Pec Stretch

I love my personal trainer, and boy does she love push-ups! We did tons of variations yesterday including Diamond Push-Ups, and now my pecs and the front of my shoulders are so unbelievably sore.

  • In a standing or seated position, lift your arms overhead. Bend your elbows and clasp your fingers behind your head.
  • Actively draw your elbows back as you press your chest forward. Stay here for 30 seconds.
  • Then tilt and turn your head slightly in all directions, trying to find positions that deepen the stretch even further.
