Here are three stretches you can do that will take very little time while making a big impact on opening up those muscles!
Note: Make sure to maintain good posture and also keep your core engaged while you’re doing these stretches. Hold each stretch for 30 seconds before switching sides.
💪Standing Chest Stretch: Stand next to a doorway, with elbow bent at a 90-degree angle. Place your elbow against the door jamb, and gently press your shoulder forward to help open up your chest and shoulder muscles.
💪Lying Chest Stretch: Place a foam roller or several rolled-up towels on the floor. Lie on your back on the roll so that it is aligned along your spine/back. Gently extend your arms out from your shoulders, palms facing up, feeling a stretch through your arms, shoulders and chest. Be sure to keep your back against the roll and your chin slightly tucked.
💪Seated or Standing Shoulder Stretch: With your belly braced, reach your right arm up and overhead before bending our elbow to extend your hand behind your back. Reach around with your left arm to try to grab your right hand. If you can’t reach it, use a towel or strap.
Are you in for doing at least 3-5 minutes of chest and shoulder stretches EVERY DAY this week!?
