Hands Behind Back

This stretches the front chest pectoral muscles and improves neck and shoulder blade posture.

1. Stand comfortably with your hands gently clasped behind your back.

2. Gently tuck your chin in whilst keeping your eyes looking straight ahead. Do not look down or up as you chin tuck.

3. Roll your shoulders back and feel your shoulder blades move gently down your back/chest wall.

4. With chin in and shoulder blades down, move your clasped hands away from your backside

5. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times
