Straight Arm Overhead Stretch With A Stick
- Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Grip the stick edges so that you can easy move it behind back over your head with stretched arms. This is your starting position.
- From the starting position raise the stick over your head with straight arms and move it behind your head as far as you can.
- Return to the starting position.
Tip: Don’t tense up or turn out your arms. Place them far enough from each other, so you can easy raise them over your head and move behind your back. To increase the load, reduce the distance between arms.
Repeat the exercise about 12–15 times, as the muscles relax after approximately 10 repetitions.
Precautions: If you experience joints or their flexibility problems, you can perform this exercise with a towel.
