Step by Step Guide
Begin standing with the feet hip distance apart and arms down at your side.
Now raise both arms overhead to clasp the hands behind your head.
While keeping the spine neutral, push the elbows back and away from each other in order to deepen the stretch. Hold for 30 seconds.
Then relax and return to the start position.
Repeat for the desired repetitions.
One common mistake is extending the spine by going into thoracic extension. Instead, focus on extending the arms back to isolate the stretch to the chest and shoulder region.
