Chest and Shoulder Stretch

The Shoulder Stretch Missing From Your Life

If you spend hours hunched over a computer, you can ease shoulder tension instantly by getting on the floor and showing your upper body just how good this stretch feels.

Beginner Version

  • Sit on the floor with your legs extended straight out in front of you.
  • Place your palms behind your hips about six to eight inches away, with your fingers pointing away from your body.
  • Keep your hips firmly grounded as you gently press your chest and abs forward. To increase the stretch, lower your head behind you.
  • Flex the feet and hold for 30 seconds.

Advanced Version

  • Sit on the floor with your legs extended straight out in front of you.
  • Place your palms behind your hips with your fingers pointing away from your body. Walk the hands behind you as far as you can, with the pinkies as close as possible.
  • Point the toes, gaze at the ceiling, and hold for 30 seconds.

Can't get off your seat? You can also do this stretch in a chair.
