This stretch facilitates both flexion and extension mobility through the upper back.
Classically, people present to us complaining of stiffness and tightness through the neck, upper back and over the traps.
This stretch, performed 10 times after prolonged sitting will help restore mobility to the joints and muscles, relieving pressure up into the neck.
These chest stretches can also be used to reduce shortening of pec muscles, which often contribute to pulling tension on the neck and shoulders.
Perform these variations for at least 30 seconds regularly throughout the day to minimise tightness before it progresses into pain!
