HOW: Begin with your arms elevated on something like a bench shown here while grabbing onto something like a dowel or pipe- The more spread your hands, the greater the stretch. Then hinge back into a child’s pose position, this will bring the arms overhead. Slowly work into and out of this position.
FEEL: You will feel the muscles on the side of your torso being stretched, specifically in the Lat region.
COMPENSATION: Avoid arching the low back as you go through this, if your elbow are being irritated with this stretch then bring your hands a bit more narrow.
