Technique

Stand erect with your legs one foot apart. Place your hands behind your back. Interlock your fingers.

Without straining, twist your arms, so that the palms face outwards away from the body; the hands should remain interlocked. This is the starting position. Bend forwards from the waist while simultaneously bringing your arms upwards behind your back.

Furthermore, you should try to bring your arms upwards as much as possible, but don't strain.

The arms will act as a lever, and will accentuate the stretch given to the shoulders and the chest.

Stay in the final position for a few seconds, pushing the arms upwards as far as you can. Then return to the starting position allowing the arms to hang downwards and relax completely.

This is 1 round.

Do further rounds according to available time.
