Shower Wall Chest Stretch
We tend to think of our chest and shoulders as a part of our body with a lot of bone, cartilage and connective tissue. It’s a mistake to neglect a good chest wall stretch. As you sit for long periods, you tend to compress and deflate your chest, and shrug your shoulders. If you commute long distances or sit at a desk all day, try this one. With this stretch, you’ll use the whole length of your shower or tub wall.
Stand with your back to the shower glass, facing the wall. Bend both elbows 90 degrees and place your palms and forearms against the wall. Lean your body forward, touching your chest against the wall. You’ll feel a comfortable stretch up through your collarbone. For a deeper stretch, position your body in the corner of the shower enclosure and rest one arm on each adjoining wall. This creates a deeper pocket for your torso as you lean forward. Hold for 30 seconds.
