Levator Scap Stretch - no props

Levator Scapula Stretch

Even a micro-workout can make you sweat. The best part about the Levator Scapula Stretch is you get to do a covert armpit check while you're at it. Whether or not you remembered to put on anti-perspirant, there's nothing to be embarrassed about as you work out that pesky knot in your shoulders. At the end of a stressful day, relieve tension with the scapula stretch and never let 'em see you sweat.


Place one hand on the back of your head and the other behind your back or on a chair for shoulder stability. Relax your neck and shoulders and gently pull your head forward, dropping your nose to your armpit, until you feel a soothing stretch in the back and sides of your neck. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat as often as you want.
