I don't know anyone who couldn't use a good stretch in their chest and shoulders. This stretch is great because it allows you to focus on one side at a time, plus you can do it anywhere there's a wall or pole. If you sit and type all day, or if you commute long distances you have to try this chest-opening stretch. It certainly perks me up after blogging all day.
To find out how to do this,
- Stand facing a wall. Place your right palm on the wall so it's in line with your shoulder, and point your fingers to the right.
- Keep your right hand planted firmly, and bend your left arm behind you to encourage your left shoulder to open.
- Now walk your feet to the left and stop when you feel a good stretch in your right shoulder and chest.
- Hold for 30 seconds and then walk your feet back to the right. Then do this stretch with your left hand on the wall.
