Overhead Stretch for the Shoulders

Overhead Stretch for the Shoulders

Overhead stretch for the shoulders
  • Standing about an arm's length away, grasp on to a solid surface, such as a countertop, a doorknob, or the back of a sturdy chair.
  • With your knees slightly bent, bend forward with your arms straight, lowering your upper body and letting your shoulders stretch.
  • As your shoulders are able to stretch farther, you may need to take a step or two backward.
  • Hold for at least 15 to 30 seconds then stand up and relax. If you had stepped back during your stretch, step forward so you can keep your hands on the solid surface.
  • Repeat 2 to 4 times.
