Arms

  1. Move the right arm in a full circle, forward 5 times then backward 5 times.  Repeat with the left arm.
  2. Sit in a chair, lean forward and let arms dangle loosely.
  3. Raise your arms out to the side and bend your arms at the elbow.  Your arms should form an “L” shape with your elbows raised at shoulder-length and forearms extended forward with palms facing down.
  4. Bring your elbows back as far as you can.  Feel  the flexion in your upper-back.  Then, bring your arms forward again.  Repeat this 10 times.
  5. Sit on the front edge of the chair.  Make fists with your hands and raise your arms out to the side at chest height.  Extend your arms behind you as far as you can to feel the stretch in your chest.  Repeat 5 times.
  6. Open the arms out to shoulder height with palms facing down.  Inhale, lift the arms so the hands connect overhead.  Exhale, lower the arms back down to shoulder level.  Repeat 5 times.
