Transcript of NHS Strength and flexibility: chest stretch


Stand tall with your feet shoulder-width apart and shoulders back and down.

Interlock your fingers behind your back, palms facing up.

To start the move, draw your shoulders back and down,

keeping your arms straight.

Don't arch your back.

You should feel a stretch across your chest and front of the shoulders.
