Stretch Challenge Day 3 – Chest and Upper Back Stretch
Day 3: Chest and Upper Back Stretch
Chest and Upper Back Stretch: Strand tall and relaxed. Round upper back and bring your hands together in front of your chest. Drop head in between arms. Keep shoulders relaxed. Hold for 15-30 seconds.
Then, slowly release and bring arms behind you. Clasp hands. Open up chest, lift chin and breathe. Hold for 15-30 seconds.
Repeat as needed.
Stretch AFTER you are warmed up – either after your workout or after a very thorough warm up.
As you’re stretching pay attention to what your body is telling you:
- where you feel tight, sore or fatigued in certain areas
- if one side feels different from the other
- how you feel after a hard run / race
- how you feel after a rest day
- flexibility and what you want to improve upon
It’s only a minute a day most days – so NO EXCUSES. Show up everyday.
Follow the Run Eat Repeat Facebook Page and Run Eat Repeat Instagram for a LIVE video check in.
Leave a comment with your workout for today on the Run Report – a daily check in I post everyday on Instagram.
Always consult with your doctor before starting a new diet or exercise program. Stop if there is any pain. Be smart, safe and kind to your body.
