Behind Head Chest Stretch - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Sit on the floor with your legs comfortably in front of you. Keep your back straight and chest up.

Step 2

Place your hands behind your head and interlock your fingers. Your partner will then stand behind you. This is your starting position.

Step 3

Your partner places his/her hands on your inner elbows and pull them back until you feel your chest and deltoids stretch. Make sure to not pull too much to avoid injury and overstretching. Hold for 10 seconds.

Step 4

After 10 seconds, try to bring your elbows together while your partner restrains your movement. Hold for 6 seconds.

Step 5

After 6 seconds, your partner releases his/her hold. Relax your muscles while your partner gently pulls your elbows back as far as you can tolerate. Hold for 30 seconds. Make sure to apply a moderate amount of force and don’t go beyond your limit to avoid injury or overstretching.
