Exercise Video: Chest Openers + Back Strengthener (Follow along)
Do you experience tension headaches, numbness or tingling in your shoulders or arms, or tightness in your upper back, neck, shoulders, or chest (the non-heart attack kind)? If so, then it could be due to an upper body muscular/postural imbalance. It’s pretty common, especially since so many of us are seated throughout the day with our shoulders rounded and arms in front of us typing on a keyboard or driving a vehicle. Fortunately, there’s an exercise* for that—three in fact—that will stretch and open your chest, strengthen your upper back, and bring proper alignment to your body. Grab a foam roller if you have one, press play, and I’ll meet you on the mat (or carpet).
