Doorway stretch for upper back and chest

Doorway stretch for upper back and chest

Do you lean forward or bend over for a lot of your day? This is an easy way to stretch in the opposite way a few times a day!

Stand in a doorway with your forearms resting against the door frame. Gently push your chest forward until you feel a stretch in your chest/shoulders/middle back.

Hold for 15-20 secs, then stand back, reset and repeat 2-3 times. You can also try it with your arms up a bit higher to change the angle of the stretch.

If it causes you pain anywhere or pins and needles in your arms, I recommend to stop doing it and see a physio for an assessment. To find a physio in your area of Australia or New Zealand click here.

This is a great exercise to do alongside one of my earlier posts (the wall exercise) and are two that I do regularly myself!
