Stretch It: Pulling Elbow Deltoid Stretch

If hours of raking leaves or strength training have given you sore outer shoulders, here's a simple stretch you should try. It's a variation of this basic deltoid stretch.

To learn how to do this

.

  • Begin with your feet hips-width distance apart. Bend your right arm and hold onto it with your left hand just above your right elbow.
  • Now use your left hand to pull your right elbow down and toward the left, twisting your upper torso as much as you can without moving your feet.
  • Hold for thirty seconds and then switch sides.

If this wasn't enough for you, here are some more shoulder stretches to try out.

this is one of those stretches that you don't think will do a lot but when you do it you realize how tense you were and things are so much better.
