Shoulder Opener – Fingers Laced Behind Back

Keep yourself standing tall with less pain!
This is a great stretch if you work at a computer all day or, as I have recently found out, if you are nursing a baby throughout the day! These two activities make it way too easy to fall into a slumped shoulder position and stay there for way too long. Make sure you roll your shoulders back and try to broaden across the chest as you do this exercise to get the most benefits. If you don’t have the flexibility to connect your fingers behind you (which means you definitely need a stretch like this in your life), grab a band, a hand towel or even a belt to create a connected loop and then straighten your arms.
